Be thankful for home
Be thankful for food
Be thankful for birds that fly
Be thankful for sleep
Be thankful for flowers
Be thankful for clouds in the sky.
Be thankful for friends
Be thankful for rain
And the rainbows that follow close by.






This isn't just a turkey
As everyone can see,
I made it with my hand
Which is part of me.
It comes with lots of love
Especially to say,
I hope that your
Thanksgiving Day
has been a lot of fun.

We have just finished the unit, My City, and we are about to start a long weekend. In other words, we have a great opportunity to explore all the wonderful places that our city has to offer. Perhaps we could visit the Retiro, the Plaza Mayor, or maybe the shops in our neighborhood such as the butcher's, the baker's or the chemist's, so as the kids can see first-hand the things that we have been learning about.




Well done Lucía! Congratulations! 



Exam time again!!
