Thanksgiving Day

This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day.  In this country, the Thanksgiving tradition is to get together with family and friends for a special feast of certain foods.  You probably already know what some of those foods are.  The idea is to give thanks for the good things in our lives.

Go to a dictionary website, like, or to learn more about Thanksgiving Day traditions and history.

After learning more about Thanksgiving, please write a comment to this post explaining what you are thankful for right now.

By the way,  in observance of Thanksgiving Day, we do not have classes on Wednesday.

Happy Thanksgiving and see you next week!

What are your goals?

I loved all of your postings about your favorite English word. You all had such different and interesting reasons for choosing your favorite word.

For your next posting, please explain an important goal or goals that you have. Your goals might be related to education, family, work, community, life skills, etc.

Try to use specific examples and details and the organizational strategies that we have discussed and practiced in class.

I look forward to reading about your goals and seeing you achieve those goals!
