A Stop Motion Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my blogging friends!    I'm off to visit with my wonderful inlaws in Brevard NC tomorrow.

This video, by the way, illustrates a nice step-by-step set of directions for making a real pumpkin pie!  It's stop motion filming is very engaging for all viewers, and it's set to some great music.  Let the kidos watch it and then retell!    Then after the retell, they can write and illustrate a 'how to' book (from our school writing curriculum--it's amazing to me how many kids seem to be at a loss when it comes to this task.)

If you are permitted to cook with the kids (we're not), make an easier version of a pumpkin pie (open a box and cook) and then have them compare what they did with what this video shows.

OR, just don't think about speech therapy for a few days, and make a pumpkin pie of your own!  Have a nice holiday!
