4th Grade

To prepare my great Thanksgiving feast, I need to buy a turkey and the other ingredients. I will invite my grandma, grandpa, mom and dad, and other family members.

The turkey needs to go in the oven, the potatoes need to be peeled, and the green beans need to be cooked. Turkey needs to be in the oven for about 2 to 3 hours at 350 degrees. You put the potatoes in a pot to soften them, and then you mash them. The wheat rolls will be heated in the oven and served with butter.

I will line all the food on the table and the people will walk around the table to get their dinner. Then we sit at the dining room table at the farm. We put big candles in the middle of the table and other fall decorations. Before we eat, our family sings the Doxology.

My favorite part of the meal is the turkey. My grandma makes homemade vanilla ice cream for dessert. I look forward to Thanksgiving Day.


1. I get things I will need. 2. I make sure I know how to cook it correctly. 3. I watch instructions on how to cook the food if I don’t know how. 4. I get adult help. 5. Bring food to my uncle’s house 6. Decorate his house 7. Wait until everyone arrives 8. The guests help decorate 9. Say what we are thankful for 10. Open presents 11. Eat

Serenity B.

First, you invite your friends and family. Then you need to cook your turkey in the oven. Now you get some rolls and some butter, and then you bake the rolls. Now put some butter on them. Next, you get some dessert like pie, Jell-O, cake, or ice cream. So now you get bacon and green beans, then wrap the bacon around the green beans, and then put it in the oven.

Now you watch the Thanksgiving parade with your family.


You first invite friends and family, and then you make the turkey. Then you skin the turkey. You can’t go wrong with some mashed potatoes and some cheese dip.

Then find a place to have Thanksgiving dinner. Then you set up some tables and kids activities and have a lot of fun.

For dessert: ice cream, brownies, and s’mores, too. Play lots of very fun games and have the best Thanksgiving ever!


I would start with cooking my turkey for two to three hours, check, and then if it’s done I taste it. If it wasn’t done, then I would do thirty more minutes.

Then I would make cornbread. I’d mix corn with bread.

After that I would make brownies for dessert. I would also make some stuffing to stuff the turkey. I would also cook some ham with mashed potatoes and gravy.

Then after all of that I would call my nana, papa, aunt and uncle, and last but not least my Grandma Sharon and Grandpa Cal. When we all are done, some watch the football game, some clean the table, and some play outside. Then we all leave.

Benton E.

1. I go to the store and buy everything I will need.

2. I start with cooking the turkey at 150 degrees.

3. Then while the turkey is cooking, I will start the mashed potatoes and the gravy.

4. Next I will take the turkey from earlier out of the oven.

5. You also make the sides you will want with your Thanksgiving dinner.

6. Now you need to carve the turkey because it has cooled a little bit.

7. Then the last step is to decorate the table with colorful tablecloths, paper plates, and candles.


Put butter on the turkey, then put the seasoning on. Get the smoker to 150 degrees and then put the turkey in, but slow smoke it.

Now it is time for sides. For your sides: rolls and butter, corn on the cob, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, and peas.

Then it is time to check on the turkey. To see if it is crisp, take it out. If it is not crispy leave it in the smoker.

Now it is time for dessert cake, cherry pie, rhubarb pie, cheesecake, and ice cream.

Now take the turkey out of the smoker. Now it is time to feast.

I spend time with my family and I get to see my Uncle Loren. But the most important part Thanksgiving Day is spending time with my family with laughter and joy.


1. You need to put a turkey in the oven at 150 degrees. 2. You need to put the ham in the oven, and peel the potatoes and mash them. 3. Get the flour and make the pie crust. 4. Get the fruit ready. Don’t forget the whipped cream. 5. While all that is cooking, you could decorate. 6. Get all the food out of the oven and put it on the table. 7. Before you put the turkey on the table, you need to shred.


Slow roast the turkey for seven hours. While that is slow roasting, make your cornflake casserole.

When you are done with your casserole, put it in the fridge and go get a ham. Get mountain dew and brown sugar for the ham. When you get home, cook the ham. Soak it in mountain dew and sprinkle the brown sugar.

Then set the table and get the food on the table, and you have a Thanksgiving dinner.


Buy a turkey and make cheese ball dip. I get cheese.

We also make marshmallow Jell-O and hot rolls. We also have ham, hot dogs, and cheeseburgers.

We play games and invite family and friends over to our house. We get our place mats out that have leaves and chickens on them.

We put our turkey in the oven on 500 degrees for 1 minute.

Someone will have wine and we put chocolate chip cookies in to bake.


Put butter on hands, then rub on turkey and add some seasoning. Then put in the smoker at slow smoke set to 150 degrees F.

Cook some ham, corn on the cob, some cupcakes, chocolate cake, and some egg rolls.

We will eat at the dinner table to celebrate turkey and play games.


My sister, our mom, and I go to our Gramma and Grampa’s house.

My sis and my mom help granny cook the side dishes like mash potatoes with gravy, green beans with bacon wrapped around it, grits, and cornbread.

While they do that, Grampa and I cook the turkey. Grandpa puts the coals and lighter fluid and I light it.


First you need to cook the turkey. Then you can have tater tot casserole if you want. Also, you can have green bean casserole if you want.

You can have mashed potatoes and gravy with ham. You can have cranberry Jell-O and cranberry sauce. Don’t forget to invite family and friends. Sometimes you have deer meat.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


You can hunt a turkey or you can buy turkey and tater tot casserole. My grandma and grandpa will come and maybe my cousins, my aunt and uncle, and older brother.

I will cook the turkey, green beans, and the tater tot casserole in the oven. We will all sit down at the table or on the couch if there’s not enough room.

It will be fun because we can play catch and video games. We eat pumpkin pie. We bounce on the trampoline. We play don’t touch the ball and dodgeball.


To prepare a Thanksgiving dinner, we go to the grocery store to buy turkey, fruit, mashed potatoes, green beans, and corn. We will not have peas!

When we get to grandma’s house, we cook everything. Then we put all the food on the table and wait for family to come. We have to set up extra tables because I have a big family.

We all eat and then hang out. We play games, especially hide and seek outside.

Maddix Wilson

My family will buy ham or turkey, sweet potatoes, cornbread, pumpkin pie and pudding, hot rolls, and anything we need for cooking on Thanksgiving Day. We will also fix up other side dishes.

We then set up the big table and wait for company. To help us set the table, we put plates and the cloth on the table and pass out the napkins.


5th grade

First you go to the store. Then buy the turkey. Then go home and make the turkey for one day on slow cook. Then go to the store. Buy potatoes. Go home. Cook the potatoes, then smash. And then boom, voila, done.

Get the summer sausage. Get the cheese. Get the crackers. Put it all in a bowl. Go to the store. Buy broccoli. Bring it home and put it on a platter. And boom, voila.


I am going to make stuffing for Thanksgiving dinner. First, I will chop celery in a bowl. Secondly, I am going to make bread crumbs and put them in a bowl. Then crack three eggs in the bowl. Lastly, put the mixture in a pan and bake on 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Now I’m going to fix smoked ham. First, I am going to put rub on it and rub it in. Second, put on a pan and put in a smoker. Third, take it out to cool.

Now I’m going to fix mashed potatoes. First, peel potatoes. Second, cut into cubes. Third, put in a saucepan with a stick of butter and milk. Fourth, smash potatoes in a pan.

Lastly, I’m going to fix pecan pie. First, buy crust. Second, chop pecans and make filling. Third, bake for 10 minutes. Last, let cool.

James Emerick

I like to make corn for Thanksgiving dinner. First, you pick corn from the farm, then you have to put it in a pot, put hot water in the pot, turn on the stove, let it boil for about an hour, then put salt and butter on it and it will be ready to eat!!!

This is how you make a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. First, you buy it or hunt it. Next, skin it, or if you buy it, you let it thaw! Now you’re probably thinking, EWW!! But it’s not that bad. But back to the story. Set the pot on the stove and fill it up with water, put the turkey in the water, turn the stove on, set the pot on the stove for a couple of hours, THEN IT’S READY TO EAT!!!

So this might sound weird but I make mashed potatoes and corn. So you’re probably thinking, GROSS or DISGUSTING!!! But it’s not that bad, just try, it’s DELICIOUS! So first you have to get mashed potato mix because I don’t know how to make it. Buy or farm the corn, get a pot and put water in it, put the corn in the pot. Get a BIG pan and put the mashed potatoes in the pan, turn on the stove, put the pan on it, wait about one hour for both, THEN IT’S DONE!!!

Next, in my family we make rolls. I didn’t like them but I still helped make them. So first you have to make the dough and shape it, WOW!!! Next, you put it on a flat pan, put it in the oven for about 30 minutes, pull it out, then IT’S READY TO EAT!!!

You’re going to be thanking me later.

Mariem Drow

Hi I’m Lucas and it’s November, it’s the best month yet. The reason why, Thanksgiving!!!

I’m going to fix a squash, wrapped, smoked and seasoned turkey. Step one throw it in the oven at 350 degrees and leave it in for two hours and boom done enjoy.

I’m going to need a side dish. We are going to make squash chips. Step one slice into thin pieces and cook at 250degrees. Then take out and put salt on it and it is delicious!

Stuffing: Go to the store and buy it, sorry, I don’t’ know how to cook it.

Green beans, get a can of green beans and cook with seasoned potatoes that you will need later. Put your medium and cook until steam. Another side dish you know of, potatoes I talked about, put them in the blender.

Pumpkin pie: Go to the store and buy canned pumpkin and make your own dough, and there’s your Thanksgiving dinner. The end.

Lucas LaFever

I’m going to make a turkey.

Preheat the oven to 350. Batter the turkey in brown sugar. Next stick it in the oven for seven hours. Then when your turkey is done, pull it out and pour pineapple juice on it. Now you have a turkey.

Now I’m going to tell you how to fix the ham and preheat the oven to 375. Put it in for two hours and thirty minutes. Pour Mountain Dew on it and batter brown sugar for one hour and fifteen minutes. Then when it’s done, pull it out and pour more Mountain Dew on it, and then you have a ham. Voila!

Next, I’m going to make pumpkin pie. First, open a can of pumpkin pie filling. Pour it in the pie crust. Next, put whipped cream on it. Walla bang walla boom, now you have a pumpkin pie!

This is how you fix a chocolate pie. First put your cream cheese in your pie crust. Next, put chocolate syrup on it. Then add whipped cream on top. Lastly add a chocolate covered strawberry on every slice. Bon appetite, you now have the best chocolate pie.

Zailea Naylor

I am going to fix a very good glazed ham. I will first wrap my ham in the glaze and we are going to learn how to make the glaze. You will need pineapple, water, and powdered sugar: mix, then add it to ham. So, I can’t really make ham, so I’ll just buy one! I’ll add the glaze.

Now for the friend beans and mashed potatoes! First you will need your beans then you add your beans in a blender. CAUTION, have a lid or you may explode. I mean the beans, not you. Now you will take them out and BOOM, you have your beans.

Now for your mashed potatoes. First, get your potatoes and skin them. Then, put them in a bowl and mash them with a mixing spoon or a blender. It may work but you know what happened last time I said to use the blender, it got bad. But then cook them and you have the best mashed potatoes. Now add seasoning, you can choose. I like pepper and salt more than butter.


This is how I would make a Thanksgiving dinner. First, for the mashed potatoes, you grab POTATOES and then you peel the skin off. Now you need to cut them, BOIL them, and then BLEND them.

The next thing on my list for dinner is TURKEY. Ohhhh I love turkey! First you hunt him, then take the feathers off and let the blood drain out. Now you can put him in the turkey fryer. I can’t wait.

Sooooooooooo, um, now for the corn. Turn on the stove and put corn in the pot and boil for two minutes. You will need to add butter and salt. 0_0 -_- 0_0

I lovvvvvvve pumpkin pie but I have no idea how to make it, so buy it. When you get it home, you can put whipped topping on it and then eat it.

The Thanksgiving meal at my house is yummy, and we have lots to eat. I can’t wait to eat all of it.

For Thanksgiving I Will Make Elk.

First, my mom makes elk. Next, we cut holes in the elk for eggs. Then we put the elk and the eggs in the smoker for the night starting at 8:30. Mmm…good.

My dad loves mac and cheese. First, I make the cheese. Then the noodles. Last we add the cheese and noodles and put them in the smoker for one day. He loves mac and cheese.

So now we will make the pie. First, I don’t’ know how to make pie. Next, we are going to the store for something. Last, we will buy the pie. This is going to be a good pie.

How to make a Thanksgiving dinner? Grab the stuff you will make. Put in the turkey or ham and then turn on the stove to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and wait for about two hours. When it is almost done, start your side dishes. Then your turkey or ham is done.

Grab a ton of potatoes. Start peeling them. Once peeled, start mashing and heating the potatoes. When warm, put in a bowl and put it on the table.

Grab your stuffing that you have bought at your local Walmart. Boil stuffing in water for about five minutes. Let it cool and put it on the table.

Open a can or two of green beans. Put the green beans in a bowl. Open the microwave and pop in the green beans. Heat for about 50 seconds.

To make my family specialty, soy sauce, you need soybeans, ramen flavor packet, and a pinch of salt. First, take the soybeans and juice them. Second, put juice from soybeans and all other ingredients in the blender. Enjoy the soy sauce. Caution, it is delicious.

Now you can make your Thanksgiving dinner.

How to make turkey! First you have to go get the turkey. Then, you put it in the oven for three hours or four hours. Lastly, you take it out and put seasoning on it to make it yummy.

Now how to make deviled eggs! First, boil the eggs. Then, take them out and also take them and MASH them. So you mashed them last. You do put relish, mayo, I don’t know what other things that my Nanny puts in it.

How to cook ham? First you go to the store to get the ham. Now you get the oven on, you put it in for three hours, and then take it out so you can put on seasoning.

And that’s how to make a Thanksgiving dinner.
