Maya, 6th: We went to my mom’s friends house. There were 9 kids. We had Thanksgiving get together, but we didn’t eat any turkey or Thanksgiving food and instead, we had Japanese food. After dinner, we had s’mores. Yum!

CJ, 6th: The Dutch families got together for their own Thanksgiving meal, played and they saw a movie Monopoly.
Bernardo T., 4th: In Thanksgiving I went to San Francisco. My favorite parts were that I went to Alcatraz, and I went in the prison of Alcatraz. It was very scary ?. My other favorite part was when I went on the ice to skate on the San Francisco Union Square. My other favorite part was when I went to the ?. My family and I taken a lot of pictures on San Francisco, because it’s very beautiful. I loved San Francisco.

Joshua, 4th: I had my friends come over to my house to eat together as our thanksgiving dinner. We ate some clam chowder, macaroni & cheese, and some steak.
The rest of the time me and my friends played video games and also had a nerf war! I am thankful for having this thanksgiving dinner, having a home, and video . games, that’s a privilege for me.
Lisa, 4th: On thanksgiving day, we went to my mom’s friend who lives in Greenwich Connecticut. It was really boring at first because they don’t have board games or the kids were grounded from watching TV. So we started a plastic egg throwing game which is like a dodgeball. Eventually, everyone went to the dining room for dinner. We had some soup and takoyaki, which is a Japanese food. After about some time, people were really having fun eating s’mores and roasting marshmallows. After that, we all kind of lost our minds because of eating all that marshmallows and sweets and we turned on the tv and started watching a movie about a spaceship. Maya and my friends that are called Mina and Lina was watching slime videos on instagram and I wasn’t into that sort of thing so I watched the movie. Right around the best part, one of the boys turned the channel into football. I was kind of mad so I went to the adults place. They were eating cake and talking about all sort of stuff. I stayed there for about an hour and the boys and rest of the girls came and they were jealous of the cake because they weren’t enough for all the kids to have a piece. People started leaving around 9 and We left at 10. I was exhausted that I didn’t even know if I’m sleeping or not in the taxi.
Reuben, 11th: During this vacation, I kind of stayed at home and switch to my laziness mode. I want to say not really fancy and productive, however, I cooked some dishes during thanks giving, which is sort of meaningful to me, as an appreciation to my parent that raised me. (I made something really similar)
Helen, 10th: I went to Queens village during my Thanksgiving holiday. This photo was taken when I was climbing the mountain. I really like this scenary because the leaves became red. This tree can represent the autumn is coming. All in all，I think this is my favorate picture to show what I did in Thanksgiving.
Ms. Connor: I spent my Thanksgiving break at home on Long Island. I am thankful
for the sunny days we had because I was able to go ride my bike and
run on the boardwalk. I am most thankful for my family (our dog Willy
included!); all of my nieces and nephews bring so much laughter and
happiness into our homes. And of course, I am thankful for ALL of the
good food I ate over the break!
During my Thanksgiving break, I stayed in New York with my family, and we had a great meal together to celebrate the holiday. I also hung out with a few friends who visited New York, and we had a wonderful time together. We went to watch a movie called Murder on the Orient Express.
I am thankful for my sweet family, friends and having a good health. My family always support me to do the things I am interested in. Also, my friends are always willing to listen to my problems and give me some advice to encourage me to overcome plights. I am very thankful for that I grew up strong and healthy.
My thanksgiving break was pretty dull. Even though it was supposed to be a break, but I didn’t get a chance to relax and refresh my mind. Instead, I worked really hard on my college application. Meanwhile, I took one day off to the Metropolitan Museum to see the Michelangelo’s Exhibition. I always consider visiting the museum as a rewarding experience. Museums provide an effective way of learning, and I often get inspired afterward.
Three things I’m thankful: I’m thankful to have an excellent opportunity to get an education. I’m thankful to have all the support from my friends and my family. Last but not least, I’m extremely thankful to live in a country that allows freedom and gives me a chance to fully express myself.
