    It's Fall Y'all 

    Can you believe it is November?   During this season, the class and I have adopted a thankful turkey named Gobble.  Each day, the class agrees on one thing they are thankful for, and we add this to Gobble's feathers. Stay tuned for pictures of Gobble!!! 

    We are currently investigating the Southeasat region of the United States.  We will be discussing the Southeast cultture, traditions, and even music.
