Our Feast

Friday was a huge day. The kindergarten and first grade classes prepared and ate a Thanksgiving meal together.

The teachers were so tired at the end of the day. I slept long on Friday night, had a nap Saturday afternoon, and slept long on Saturday night. I think I am rested enough to tell you about our fabulous day.

Four classes divided up the meal. The students in each class brought the ingredients for the meal, and everyone helped prepare on Friday morning. And thankfully we had two handfuls of parents volunteer to help.

One class brought ingredients for the hamburger/vegetable soup, another brought for zwiebach (bread), another brought for cheesecake (individually made in muffin tins), and my class brought for fruit salad.

The parents cut the fruit into pieces, and then the kids cut the pieces into bite sizes.

I am so thankful to have my nephew at my school. I love having regular interactions with him.

Isn't this bread delicious looking? It was!!

80 kids, parents, and teachers eating in the basement of a local church. So thankful that the church was available to us. We prepared the food at the church in 5 rotations and then set the tables to eat.

Soup, fruit salad, bread, cheesecake, and a cornucopia filled with trail mix.

When the feast was over we headed back to school for some R & R, and then specials time.

Our students don't have school this week. But the teachers have meetings on Monday and Tuesday. Hopefully our time will be full of ideas, excitement, and validation. 

Happy week off!
Pin It!


  1. Wow, that is so cool that the children got to help out. I'm sure they were very excited to eat their own food. I can see why you were exhausted.
    I'm Not Your Grandpa, I'm Your Teacher

  2. Sounds like such a fun and special time! I'm sure the kiddos (and parents!) cherished the day :)
    I hope you have a relaxing and productive week without students!

    Joy in the Journey

  3. Wow! No wonder you were tired. Looks delicious and fun though!

  4. What a great day for you and your kiddos. Hope you were rested up for meetings today lol.

  5. Oh my!! I love it! That looks like so much fun and so much learning. I would love to do something like that at my school. What a great experience :)
