Celebrating Thanksgiving in Sachem

Students across the Sachem Central School District celebrated the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday with hands-on activities, parades, performances and service projects. These authentic learning experiences got students excited about Thanksgiving while teaching them about its history and traditions.

Students at Lynwood Avenue Elementary School said, “Move over Macy’s!” as they held their own Thanksgiving parade on Nov. 21. Fourth and fifth graders paraded the hallways with handheld balloons and creative floats. The students followed a parade route which first took them into the gymnasium filled with an audience of kindergarten, first and second grade students. Next, they marched to the second “grandstand” in the cafeteria where third graders and special guests including district administrators looked on. For the first time this year, the High School East pep band and Sagamore Middle School Arrowettes joined the elementary school students for performances.

The Wenonah speech therapy team led several activities including a read-aloud of Something to Say About My Communication Device by Eden Molineux, core word activities and a Bingo scavenger hunt. Wenonah students who use communication devices even taught their peers about how they use them.
