I have a SEMI-Idea and I am drawing a blank with the rest of it. I went to a dollar store and bought a cardboard cutout of a animated turkey. He is wearing a pilgrim's hat, has his wings stretched out, and is holding a sign that says "Happy Thanksgiving". He HAD a full fan of feathers behind him...and I cut that off. I want to put him on the bottom of the bulletin board, and replace that fan with one of our own. A feather for each ________. **** And that's where I draw a blank. We have two and a half weeks before we stop school for Thanksgiving (the last day of school I would like to take a picture of each class in front of this incredible turkey). But what should the feathers be? I was thinking about student accomplishments. I was thinking about class room accomplishments. I was thinking about all the things we will learn. I was thinking about what we are thankful for. Now...in my room alone (room 115) I have about 52 kids over the course of the week (preschool M-W-F, T-TH, and M-F PLUS a regular kindergarten class in the afternoon). If we do it with BOTH the preschool AM/kindergarten PM classes...THAT is going to be a LOT of kids!!!! (not sure if we WILL do it with the other class) I don't want it to fill up TOO quickly (so a "what are you thankful for?" would be a huge mass immediately) *** Any ideas of where to take this? Help me finish my thought (my collaboration buddies!).
