In November we had election activities and we have Thanksgiving and a feast.  Thanksgiving is a holiday.  The Pilgrims sailed to a new land on the Mayflower in 1620.  Lots of people eat turkey, sometimes ham, and other good food.  We made turkeys, Pilgrim hats,  and native Americans.  We also made Pilgrim books and read them to our book buddies.  Thanksgiving is in two days.  On Thanksgiving Day and the day after we don't have school.  Lots of families get together and you get to see your relatives.  Thanksgiving is fun.  We are very thankful.

The second graders held an election on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.  We voted for either Obama or Romney for president.  The term is for four years.   Each person in Mrs. Garrett's and Mrs. Riggs' classes had a job.  Some people handed out ballots, ribbons, and registrars.  Some moms came to help.  Kindergarteners, first graders, second graders, third graders, and staff voted.   Barak Obama had 277 votes and Mitt Romney had 192 votes.
