THANKSGIVING

Today is Thanksgiving Day!!! It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November and it is a very special day for American people.
Rachel (our visitor teacher from Texas) has explained us how she celebrates Thanksgiving Day with her family and friends. 


We have also been talking about the first Thanksgiving. Do you remember the story? Let´s watch this video!

Finally, we have been thinking about what we are thankful for. 

 We have enjoyed very much. THANKS, RACHEL!!!


 

MEETING RACHEL

Rachel is our visitor teacher at school. She is from Texas in the United States of America. She has visited our classrooms these days and she has talked about her family and typical things from her country.

We have also asked her about her likes and dislikes.

And even we have been able to play a bingo game about food.

We are looking foward to seeing her again!
