Thanksgiving is coming up!

This is what I will be eating this week at our Thanksgiving celebration:

First, we set the table. You can see all the plates, glasses and silverware.
We carve the gigantic Turkey!

Stuffing is delicious. It's made with salt, pepper, breadcrumbs, and sausage
This is green bean casserole!
Mashed potatoes are my favorite. We add a little garlic and cream.


We eat the Turkey with cranberry sauce. I love cranberries, but I cannot find them in Spain.
Another sauce we put on the potatoes and the turkey is called gravy. It's thick and delicious.
Last but not least, we have pumpkin pie for dessert. YUM!!!


Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I cannot wait until Thursday!
Saludos,
Chelsea

Making Ghosts for Halloween!

On Halloween, we worked on a very fun project with the 1st grade bilingual classes! We made lolly pop ghosts! It was very easy to do. Here are the materials we used, in case you would like to try it at home:


LOLLIPOP GHOSTS

1 Lollipop

1 tissue

1 piece of ribbon or string

A pen to draw the eyes, nose, and mouth

INSTRUCTIONS:
To make the ghost, you first cover the lollipop with the tissue. Then, you tie the ribbon around the base of the lollipop. Now you have the body of the ghost! Next, you draw the eyes, the nose, and the mouth with a pen. Voila, you have your lollipop ghost. BOO!!! We had so much fun on Halloween, and we hope you did too.
