    ThanksGiving Along Time Ago by Joe Cruz
    Along time ago in the 1621 the Pilgrims came to North America because of their religion.
    They sailed 2 months and 3 days.
    When they finally hit land many of the Pilgrims
    were sick, many died.
    Samoset and Squanto helped the Pilgrims plant
    crops so they would not be hungry.
    and Native Americans made
    Thanksgiving together

    What I am Thankful for…
    by Larrell
    These are the reasons I am Thankful. The most important
    reason why I am thankful is because I have a good family.
    My family helps me with homework. They feed me and
    take good care of me.
    Other reasons Why I am thankful is my mother takes
    me places and buys me nice things.
    She give me just what she can.
    I know that. I am lucky to have
    what I have.

    The Pilgrims by Comacho Kylik
    We are the Pilgrims. We were not happy in England so we
    left and set sail to America.
    When we got there we were all alone and we were getting
    sick because it was winter and there wasn’t any food.

    Finally the Indians helped us learn how to catch our
    own food, and grow our own crops.
    Since they helped us we had a great thanksgiving
    feast to say thanks.

    Once upon Time on Thanksgiving…
    by Anthony Carballo
    Once upon a time there was a little boy asking for
    food on Thanksgiving night. There was a guy, he said come in. The guy asked “what’s your name?”
    The boy said “it’s Anthony Caraballo J.R.” (it was me)
    I asked the guy what his name was. He said Ben Hero.
    “Hungry” I said, “ I am hungry”
    Ben said, “ I have made macaroni and cheese and turkey, and it looks good, have some!
    Me and Ben had a good meal.

    The Turkey Got Caught by Genesis Marrow

    Once upon a time there was a turkey.
    He didn’t want to be cooked. But close to Thanksgiving they caught him and got him ready to be cooked . They put an apple in his mouth.
    They were ready to cook him
    But then the turkey got them! He spit out the apple out of his
    mouth and ran away!

    Thanksgiving by Rashawn Francis
    One Thanksgiving day there was a Dad, a Mom, and an 11 year old son named Nick and a 13 year old sister Susie.
    When they awoke on Thanksgiving morning
    breakfast was all done. The Mom had cooked eggs, bacon, and biscuits. It was delicious.
    The Dad, Susie and Nick played in the backyard
    and swam in the pool. The Mom stayed in the Kitchen cooking delicious food. They had a feast
    they ate Turkey, yellow rice and corn.
    It was a great Thanksgiving.
