Thank you !!

This Thursday is Thanksgiving in the US and at English & Creativity we are celebrating it all this week.


First we showed the kids some short, simple videos that explain The Story of Thanksgiving


For the older kids (and interested parents !) we suggest this website :

Then we used flash cards to learn some of the keywords we discovered in the video :  thank you, indians, pilgrims, Mayflower, corn, turkey, pumpkin, harvest, stuffing, cranberries, potatoes...

The Monday and Tuesday groups made turkeys ...

Then they danced like turkeys :

The Tuesday groups also played Thanksgiving Bingo :
