# Mrs. Lyons' Class Week 12

## November 2nd - 6th

I am so excited about November! I love the colors and the crisp air that is to come! This month will be full of new things! We will start our Social Studies lessons and will be practicing a Thanksgiving performance. This is a performance that helps students learn more about the hard journey on the Mayflower and the connection between Native Americans and Pilgrims. Your child will be coming home with a short line or two that they will need to learn before November 19th. They will dress as either a pilgrim or an indian and will say their line without their card. Please help your child keep up with his/her card.
