wonderful link to thanksgiving stories and songs
Lyra turns 8 in January, so I have stayed with the fairytales of first grade until now. We have progressed to a second grade work level, but stayed with the stories of first grade. This month we are using the Thanksgiving Holiday as our entrance into the second grade literature with Native American animal fables. This is the official start to our second grade topics in language arts, science and social studies. Luckily both my girls have winter birthdays and I can adjust our school year accordingly. So Hazel will start her official kindergarten lessons in the spring of next year.
