Jacki had a great Thanksgiving. She had hotdogs and chicken nuggets! They just moved to the country. They have a huge pile of wood in their yard. It took seven truck loads to get it all there. Her mom had a birthday yesterday. For cake they had cheese cake. I enjoyed hearing from Jacki. ...Jared

Today two kindergartners, Zac and Jacki, came to the classroom and we asked them about Thanksgiving and winter. First we asked Zac what he ate for Thanksgiving, and he said he didn't eat turkey. We asked Jacki what she ate. She said, "Chicken nuggets and hotdogs." Then we went back to Zac and asked him what he wears in winter. He said, "Snow pants, coat, gloves, and boots." Next we asked Jacki the same question and she said, "Snow pants, hat gloves, scarf and boots." Zac said he likes to make snowmen. He uses carrots for a nose, sticks for arms and buttons for the eyes. I am glad Jacki and Zac came into the classroom. ...Yumi

Today a kindergartner came into our class. His name was Zac. He was very shy and he would shrug his shoulders a lot. He did not have turkey for Thanksgiving. He didn't remember what he had. Then Mrs. Eldridge asked him what he likes to do in the winter. He said he likes to have snowball fights. He also said he liked to make snowmen. He didn't say much other than that.  ...Logan

(First we Practiced by interviewing each other.)

NOTE: During the next weeks we will be Interviewing kindergarten students. We began by watching the teacher, Mrs. Eldridge, interview some children. Next we will write questions. Finally we will conduct our interviews and write our reports.

Mrs. Eldridge interviewed Courtney and Kyler while we took notes. I took notes for both of them. They both said they went downstate for Thanksgiving. Courtney went to her Aunt Carrie's and Kyler went to his Papa's house. They both ate turkey. Courtney's Aunt has a cat and a dog. Courtney stayed one day and Kyler stayed three days. They both did well being interviewed. ...Ryan
