This week in Transitions we started our new unit on Thanksgiving. We discussed the Pilgrims, the Mayflower, cornucopias and turkeys! We will continue to discuss these topics throughout the month of November. (please see attached file.)  Our letter this week was the letter T. We wrote it and discussed words that started with the letter T. In math the students were introduced to the numbers 11-20 this week. After writing the numbers we played a lot of games to reinforce the lesson. We used the Smartboard and had a scavenger hunt outside. We took advantage of the beautiful weather to go outside to group and count leaves, sticks, feathers, and rocks. In Science we labeled our turkeys in our science journals, and made our own cornucopias! We discussed what  the Pilgrims filled the cornucopias with and how they had a 3 day celebration with the Native Americans. Next week, we will be learning more about the Pilgrims. In science we will begin our animal unit and In math we will be reinforcing our numbers 0-20. Our letter of the week will be the letter M.
