Second graders in Melanie Asman’s class held a story-inspired family feast to celebrate Thanksgiving. 

The students recently finished reading “Junie B. Jones: Turkeys We Have Loved and Eaten” in class. The class re-created the main events in the book. The children were able to bring in their favorite foods and invite a few favorite family members to share in the special classroom meal. 

Asman says it's a fun way to incorporate some of their fiction reading into real life and invite those that we are thankful for to school in the process.

Nearly every student was able to contribute to the feast and eat with at least one family member or friend. They also made "Thankful Bags" with small things they are glad to have, just like Junie does in the book.
