Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here! 
I want to take a moment to thank all of your support, whether it’s helping children, following this English blog, doing the activities on line or giving your support. It means so much for this English teacher!
Although this tradition is not a catalan one, I wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving!
Whoops! I forgot it! If you click on the picture below you will find an activity for working phonetics!

By the way, let's find out about this special day!

Each year, Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday on the fourth Thursday of November. Most families follow traditions begun on the first Thanksgiving, but many have their own traditions that they follow each year. Martha Pace, the American teacher we had last school year, told us that this Day is a little bit more important than Christmas Day!
The tradition is to spend time with family. They meet together and prepare traditional meals for this celebration: turkey, sweet potatoes, cornbread among others. And many people serve a special pie for dessert...So...

Gobble, gobble! This sweet "turkey" is the perfect finish to a Thanksgiving meal.

After the feast families often do additional activities. Some like to take walks after eating such a large meal. Some people take naps. Others sit down together to play board or card games together.
