Happy Wednesday Friends!,
Ahh, the sweet sound of Thanksgiving break. I must admit, I was counting down the days. It was so nice to not have to worry about an alarm blaring into my ear this morning and puttering around the house. Now to rest up for tomorrow--not just for Thanksgiving, but for Black Friday shopping. This is a huge tradition with me. I am a little obsessive about finding great deals. I found this ecard & have to share it!
I'm going to share a few things that I did in my classroom the past few days. Thanksgiving was in the air in my class & I was so excited to be able to take a few days for some good old fashioned F-U-N!
Thank you to some of my wonderful fellow bloggers for creating such wonderful ideas to use in my classroom.
First, we did this ADORABLE craftivity from Kelley over at The Teacher Idea Factory. She created "A Plate Full of Thanks". They came out so stinkin' cute. Here are a couple of pictures of how my students did!
This little one was after my own heart...I am thankful for Mrs. Richling...I swear that I didn't bribe her to write that either! lol :)
We also made these awesome Mayflower hats from Erica over at Sprinkles To Kindergarten!!
She has a freebie on Teachers Pay Teachers with the patterns that you can download for FREE! We received a lot of compliments on these!
Of course, we had to throw in some academics! We did some Roll and Colors (a freebie from Teri over at A Cupcake For The Teacher)! :)
And have you seen Katie's new packet, The Busy Teacher's Best Friend from Queen of the First Grade Jungle. I bought her Thanksgiving edition & words can't even describe how much I puffy heart love it!!
We did some activities out of here. Her Supper Sequencing number order page was one of my favorites!
Don't miss out on it...great investment!!
We also used a free unit that First Grade Wow had on her blog for "Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving". My students loved it!
And...I was so excited to walk into my neighboring teacher's room & see her doing my Trivial Turkey Facts craftivity from my new Thanksgiving Craftivity & Writing Pack! So cute!
Whew! What a busy week!
