Thanksgiving Break

Time to put the pumpkins away…

Clearly November got away from me too. I *just* posted my November plans post and here I am with this. It happens.

We stuck with the plans we set in the last post I shared. And we’ve made it to Thanksgiving week. In my annual plan I knew this would be a week off from regular lessons and focus on all the cooking and history of the holiday.

Here’s the Emily Dickinson book we’ve been using.

Quick summary of this week:

We’re continuing with our Bible work- reading in Hebrews, memory verses and hymns. Also, continuing with Mozart studies, mostly just listening to it and finding favorites. We also have continued daily, relaxed reading in Poetry for Young People’s Emily Dickinson book.

Thanksgiving books for the week.

Because it’s “break”, instead of math, language lessons, science etc, for this week we’re reading:

Squanto Friend of the Pilgrims or here

The Courage of Sarah Noble on Audible/Amazon or here

It’s Thanksgiving by Jack Prelutsky

The Thanksgiving Story or on Kindle

Thanksgiving Day

Molly’s Pilgrim or here

If I have time we may add Sarah Morton’s Day or Samuel Eaton’s Day. If we don’t, we’ll use that to kick off American History in January.

We’re all set to make our typical nut free Thanksgiving meal. Turkey, Mashed Potatoes and gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Baked Mac N Cheese, Green Bean Casserole and stuffing. All from scratch, even the creamy mushroom sauce for the green beans. Life with a nut allergy. Ooh and Apple Pie. Maybe brownies because truth be told I’m kind of over pumpkin. Don’t judge me.

What are your family favorite traditions or recipes for Thanksgiving?
