Isn't Thanksgiving a wonderful time to start a new tradition? It seems that not all children realize the importance of this holiday. In starting this new tradition, children write poetry and lead a discussion that gets their whole family involved. We start the boxes in class by decorating the boxes with RED, YELLOW, BROWN, AND ORANGE tissue paper. After that, the forms are attached and placed in the box along with a few other items. The directions are copied for the children to lead the discussion at Thanksgiving dinner. It is a meaningful time for the families and the parents really appreciate it.
