Riley Holds First Thanksgiving Parade

Riley Avenue Elementary School students entertained their peers with a Thanksgiving parade, complete with balloons, on Nov. 25.

The colorful parade was inspired by the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which the students learned more about by watching videos and reading “Balloons Over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy’s Parade” by Melissa Sweet. They also participated in discussions on the logistics of the parade and how the floats, balloons and costumes are made. 

The students then brought their learning to life by creating their own balloons. They started out by sketching their ideas and listing the materials they needed before making them.  

Following the parade, the students performed in the school’s inaugural Thanksgiving play, which told the story of the first Thanksgiving. The events culminated with a Thanksgiving feast in the cafeteria.

The students are currently learning about New York’s history and geography as part of a social studies unit in class. To reinforce the lessons, art teacher Melissa Haupt tied in the art component. Using Georgia O’Keeffe’s work as inspiration, the students are creating paintings of colorful mountain ranges using watercolor crayons during their art classes.
