LET'S ALSO THINK ABOUT THE OTHERS

Band Aid was a British and Irish charity supergroup, founded in 1984 to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia by releasing the record "Do They Know It's Christmas?"

Ask your parents about this song and the singers...

JUST FOR FUN

Let’s have some fun and sing just for laughs...

Enjoy these Sing-A-Long Christmas songs. Risa

We are having our first SPELLING BEE the day before Christmas holidays (Tuesday, 22nd December).

Here are a couple of websites in which you can do extra practice on Spelling Bees at home and at your own pace.

Times Spelling Bee: You can register, create a player profile and start tracking your progress now. You’ll need headphones and speakers to play the game.

Interactive Spelling Bee: This set of activities is like an old-fashioned Spelling Bee. You will listen to three stories, one at a time, and then spell words from each story.

But remember that what you have to do to success in Our School’s SPELLING BEE is study the 8 lists of vocabulary we’ve done so far and practice them till you can spell them by heart.

Good luck!!

Remember all the things to be thankful for.

When is Thanksgiving Day?


Date of Thanksgiving Day varies every year and several countries celebrate it in different time of the year. Given here is information on Thanksgiving Day date in US and Canada for the past, present and coming years. 

When is Thanksgiving Day in USA?
Thanksgiving Day finds its roots in America. It is celebrated with lot of fervor and euphoria on the fourth Thursday in the month of November (in 2009 - November 26). For the people in US Thanksgiving is a time for merrymaking, shopping, family reunion, feasts and family dinners. People also take time to thank God for his constant grace and for all the material possessions man enjoys. For many Thanksgiving is also the time to thank near and dear ones and being grateful for their kindness.

When is Thanksgiving Day in Canada?
Thanksgiving Day in Canada is, however, celebrated on the second Monday in the month of October (in 2009 - October 12) every year. Canada celebrates Thanksgiving Day a month earlier because autumn season starts early in Canada than in America. 

Thanksgiving Day Symbols:



Cornucopia
Cornucopia is the most common symbol of a harvest festival. A Horn shaped container, it is filled with abundance of the Earth’s harvest. It is also known as the ’horn of plenty’. The traditional cornucopia was a curved goat’s horn filled to brim with fruits and grains. According to Greek legend, Amalthea (a goat) broke one of her horns and offered it to Greek God Zeus as a sign of reverence. As a sign of gratitude, Zeus later set the goat’s image in the sky also known as constellation Capricorn.

 

 


Turkey
The celebration of Thanksgiving will be incomplete without the legendary Turkey. It derives its name from the ’turk turk’ sounds it makes when scared. Turkey was at one time being considered as the national symbol of America. Benjamin Franklin felt that turkey was the right choice because it was a good runner and had a sharp sight. A bald eagle later became the national symbol of America. 
The famous ’Turkey’ adorns the table of every household as a main course during the celebration. The customary dinner reminds of the ’Four Wild Turkeys’ served at the ’First Thanksgiving Feast’.     
                                                            

Pumpkin
Another modern staple at almost every Thanksgiving table is the customary ’Pumpkin Pie’. It is not sure whether pumpkin was one of the dishes in the first thanksgiving dinner. Pilgrims probably made a pumpkin dish sweetened with honey or syrup. They were however a part of all traditional meals long before the arrival of pilgrims. Pumpkin leaves were also used as salads. According to historians, other seasonal vegetables included squash. People at that time were not particularly fond of vegetables, they were mostly meat eaters. Pumpkin is one of the important symbols of the harvest festival and has been an American-favourite for over 400 years now.

 

HALLOWEEN!!!

HALLOWEEN!!!

 

Halloween

October 31st is Halloween.

Where does Halloween come from? The Celts lived in Britain, Ireland and parts of France over 2,000 years ago, and October 31st was the end of their year. The Celts believed that ghosts came back to earth on this day. Today many people around the world celebrate this old festival - but today people usually have parties, dress up, and tell spooky stories about witches, skeletons, bats and ghosts. Have some Halloween fun!

Welcome to It's A Mad Libs World!

Welcome to It's A Mad Libs World!

A Mad Lib is a funny, often ridiculous story created when you fill in the blanks with the part of speech that is requested.

When creating a Mad Lib, you will be asked to fill in blanks with the part of speech indicated. Just write the word in the blank. Make sure they match the description for that blank.

For years, parents and teachers have used these fun word games to teach children grammar, sentence structure, parts of speech and even vocabulary! Mad Libs word games make learning more fun.

Here are two webpages in which you can create your own Mad Libs and laugh.
