Today is Turkey Day! All the kids in 5C's and 5P's classes celebrated Turkey Day by reading a book about how animals helped during a disaster, but in the end Turkey helps the most. We all thought of the themes of the story and wrote it down. Some of the themes we came up with were: cooperation, teamwork, loyalty, and courage. The name of the book is ''How Turkey Saved The People''. This story is based on a legend from the Navajo.
Today we learned a new way to write. Our teachers went to a class to get new ideas about teaching writing called John Collins Writing. We did one of the new ideas today in our writing about a new book called the "The Turkey's Gift to the People". The book is based on animals trying to survive a flood and the turkeys bring seeds to grow plants when the flood passes. Our writings are called type 2 writings. We had to state in our writing what we think the theme is and give two examples from the text one example of the writing is this. I think the theme of the story is perseverance because the animals tried and tried to find a safe spot to wait out the storm and to fit every animal in they had to try and they didn't give up and Mrs. and Mr. Turkey gathered as many seeds as possible and didn't give up until they did.
