- Maybe you’re wondering how you’ll cook your meal this year, now that you’re in a foreign country, one that doesn’t celebrate this American holiday.
- Perhaps you’re being pressured by your school to teach a Thanksgiving lesson…even though you’re not American.
- Or it could just be that you’ve got yet another week of ESL classes to teach, and once again you have no idea what you’re going to do.
- The first year I used a PowerPoint that another teacher made and sent out in email to all the other teachers.
- The second year I’d somehow lost that and…well, I think I just showed Friends videos and googled some Thanksgiving pictures to talk about.
- My third year I was in a training center, and I think we may well have gotten off light that year – no lesson required. Yes!
- The fourth year saw a bit more uppity-ness in management, and I’m pretty sure I made some of those hand/finger turkeys…you know, like you may have done in first grade.
- My fifth and final year I think I showed the Friends video once again and passed out a Thanksgiving word search.
So really, when you think about it, there’s not a whole lot that has to go into it. Oh, there can be though, and that’s why you’ll be thrilled with my 44-slide Thanksgiving PowerPoint.
I’ve got images of food, a bit of history on the holiday, and quite a few miscellaneous Thanksgiving terms like Harvest, Hunting, and…Hat:
Happy Thanksgiving…and happy teaching! (gobble, gobble)
