11/13/2012 - "Giving Thanks" read by Miss Melody at Library
Tuesday, November 20th at 6:30pm Miss Melody will read Giving Thanks by Chief Jake Swamp. Miss Melody will talk about what it means to be thankful and have the children share things that they are thankful for. She will talk about how difficult it may have been for the pilgrims and the Indians to communicate with the language barrier. Along with the discussion, children have an opportunity to experience how difficult it is to complete a task without being able to speak. The children will be divided into two groups and asked to set the dinner table for Thanksgiving without speaking to each other. The activity will require them to use body language to communicate and divide tasks within the groups. Take home activities will be available. Children will receive a small gift to give to their Thanksgiving dinner hosts.
