Providence Thanksgiving Assembly

Dear friends,

Last Monday (November 17), our home school co-op, Providence Home Educators, presented a simple Thanksgiving assembly during the history classes. My purpose in organizing it was just to get the kids singing and to think about our gratitude for our country!

The Pre-K through 2nd grade classes sang two verses of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and one of “America the Beautiful.” The 3rd-6th graders sang “For the Beauty of the Earth” and “Come, Ye Thankful People.” The 7th-8th graders performed “In God We Still Trust.” All of the students recited the Pledge of Allegiance, and I added in three poems as well as introductions for each song. We also said farewell to one of our co-op families as they move out of state. It wasn’t a fancy production, but everyone seemed to have fun!

I posted edited audio selections from the program, accompanied by photographs and captions, on our co-op blog. Here is the link: Providence Thanksgiving Assembly 2008
