Kids Feast Like The Pilgrims

Walking where Indian children used to play, Costa Negron and other kindergartners at Brookside Elementary School got to know one another over a Thanksgiving feast Wednesday

Before enjoying their authentic meal of popcorn, fruit salad and corn bread, each of the school's four kindergarten classes entertained the others. Christine Malizia's class sang "Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?" and then Costa's class followed with Annette Wynne's classic poem "Indian Children," chanting about "where Indian children used to play, all about our native land." Lisa Lee's class followed with a list of Thanksgiving dinner dishes they were thankful for, holding up illustrations as each was  announced. Natisha Campbell's children sang "Gobbedly, Gobbedly" in praise of the holiday.

Then they sat to eat, which gave the children from the different classes a chance to mingle.

The children also did class work on the topic of Thanksgiving, making a list of things they were thankful for. Malizia said most of the pupils made a list of their toys, but one child stood out. "I'm thankful for love," Marcus Echeverria said.
