November 22, 2013

This week we studied the Pilgrims.  We looked at Plimouth Plantation.  We read about the life of a Pilgrim girl and Pilgrim boy.  (We learned children got "the rod"--spanked with a stick-- if they talked out of turn.)  We also learned most girls did not get schooling, but could if their fathers taught them at night.  We found out the roofs of their houses was made out of dried grass (thatched roofs).  The children had alot of chores to do every day.  There was a watchtower that the men took turns watching for enemy ships or attacks of any kind.

We filled another bucket this week.  We have filled Mrs. Wilcox's bucket 8 times!

We learned how to add ending sentences to our writing.

We had an amazing week!

  1. Izzy has been talking a lot about the pilgrims, you are doing a great job making them seem very real. She was even upset that some of them died!
