The Review visited Ordway Elementary to talk turkey — and Thanksgiving — with some of the school’s first-graders.

What's the best part of Thanksgiving for?

"Before dinner, we watch a movie. When it's over, we eat dinner. And my grandma makes good food and I'm going to help her. And we're going to make rolls, get strawberries and do other stuff like that, and make cupcakes."

Do you have a favorite?

"A roll."


"Because we're going to put vanilla frosting on them. And they are going to be cinnamon rolls."

How are you going to help?

"I'm going to help to stir, and roll the dough. And put the batter in the cupcake cups, and then, when we're done, I'm going to be frosting them."

How long does it take to cook a turkey?

"My grandma does it really fast, so, it actually for her takes 20 minutes."

What's the best part of Thanksgiving for you?

"Watching movies with my mom and playing with my sister."

What's Santa do on Thanksgiving?

"He eats turkey."
