Thanksgiving at PS 201
Students from Ms. Hertler’s gathered around a table to savor a pumpkin pie and give their thanks.
They first set the table: tablecloth, plates and silverware (fork to the left, knife and spoon to the right) and, of course, napkins. To top it off, they added a bouquet, also called a “centerpiece,” the kind of decorative table accent that students had talked about in a previous class. While Ms. Marie was preparing the pie, the group shared their Thanksgiving Day traditions with Mr. Pete, talking about people with whom they celebrate the holiday, what they eat and things they do to mark the day.
