Make a "Handy" Thanksgiving Wreath
Whether you’re visiting friends and relatives or staying home this Thanksgiving, the holiday is a powerful time to stop and express gratitude for the gifts around us. First grade social science curriculum includes lessons on this holiday message, but there’s no place like home to make it come alive. Around this time of year, lots of families make or purchase a wreath in seasonal russets and gold. This year, why not consider getting some homemade help from your first grader—and providing some extra reading and writing practice while you’re at it?
What You Need:
- Construction paper in strong fall colors
