I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! If anyone has any information about how students and teachers in one-room schools celebrated Thanksgiving, please let me know. As a French teacher, I have my Grade 1 students make a little booklet with pages as part of a cornucopia. Each page says "Je mange" followed by a picture and the name of the food they would eat at Thanksgiving. My Grade 2 students cut out pictures of fruits and vegetables and glued them to form a cornucopia. They had had a little paragraph to read to their parents. I'll check tomorrow to see if they did so.
