Thanksgiving is a national holiday we celebrate in the United States. If you’re an immigrant to this country, do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Do you enjoy the turkey, mash potatoes, dressing, cranberries and pumpkin pie? My son who recently moved to the Netherlands, will he be eating Thanksgiving dinner on the last Thursday in the month of November or will he be going to work? For many people in the United States, Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday. It is a time when friends and family get together. Many people get four days off from work, Thursday through Sunday.
Thanksgiving is a time to think about what we are thankful for. When I walk my dogs around my neighborhood in the early evenings, I am thankful for such a peaceful neighborhood. I am thankful for the beautiful homes that have not been damaged by wars or weather.
I am thankful for the parent volunteers in my classroom. As I’ve said before, I am a kindergarten teacher. This year we started with 39 children in our all day kindergarten classrooms with no help from hired aides. Now, we are down to 32 kindergarten children in our classrooms. I am thankful for the wonderful parent volunteers. They make this overcrowded situation doable and enjoyable.
And of course, I am thankful for my wonderful family. I am thankful that they are healthy and safe.
One of my favorite activities is reading, I am thankful to have the skills to enjoy reading. Fisher Hill workbooks are geared to help Spanish-speaking teens and adults develop reading and comprehension skills so they can enjoy and use the gift of reading.
