Wilson Creek students show that they are thankful
Wilson Creek Elementary students in Debra Fujimoto’s kindergarten class have enjoyed learning about the significance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Students have learned why and how Thanksgiving is celebrated and how President Lincoln turned it into an official holiday. They also studied the Pilgrims and their friend, Squanto, who helped them learn how to survive in the New World.
Students performed a Thanksgiving musical for their parents before enjoying a traditional Thanksgiving Feast of turkey and dressing in the cafeteria. The musical was titled “The Story of Thanksgiving” and featured students performing five songs: Sail the Mayflower (tune: Row Your Boat), I’m A Little Indian (tune: I’m A Little Teapot), Mr. Turkey (tune: Where is Thumbkin?), Turkey Strut (tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb), and Turkey Dinner (tune: Are You Sleeping?).
