Perfect for Thanksgiving, teaching tolerance, anti-bullying, cooperation, and friendship themes. Teacher does a paired reading of Molly's Pilgrim by Barbara Cohen and A Brand New Kid by Katie Couric. Great way to compare/contrast, teach themes through literature and meet common core standards in writing. Create a boy pattern and girl pattern from file folders. The students then create their own pilgrim based on their unique heritage and complete the writing assignment. Makes a fabulous November bulletin board!
