Our Thanksgiving Feast, Sales, & Bundles!

We had a great time Tuesday celebrating Thanksgiving with our neighboring classmates. The girls were Native Americans and the boys were Pilgrims. They enjoyed juice, popcorn, and muffins. And of course we finished it off watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

We also had fun making Turkey Patterns from my November Fun Pack. The kiddos loved using cubes to make their patterns and then transfer it to their pattern book.

And you know how everyone is playing all of those bump games? Well I thought how fun it would be to play it in well....large format. So I created a Roll & Bump mat out of butcher paper. The students used two large blow up dice to roll. I put them into two teams and they would roll and count the number of dots (little did they know they were adding) and would cover the number they rolled.

If they rolled what the other team rolled, they could bump them off.

They loved this game!! 


And Cyber Monday is on it's way. Teachers Pay Teachers is having their annual Cyber Monday sale. My store will be 20% Monday-Wednesday and you can get an extra 10% from TPT on Monday and Tuesday using the code CYBER.

I'm linking up with Learning With Mrs. Leeby and other stores who will be hosting a sale those days as well.

Also my store will be on sale at Teacher's Notebook as well. They are offering their build a bundle sets from November 30th-Dec. 2nd. Click on the picture to take you to the site.

Take Me Back Tuesday---Wednesday Style

I'm finally linking up Second Grade Shenanigans for her Take Me Back Tuesday.


In honor of Thanksgiving and having such a thankful heart---I decided to just do a throwback to last year's Thankful post. Here are a few things I'm thankful for:

**********Original Post on November 12, 2012*******
1. My Savior---without Him, I'd be nowhere, with Him--all things are possible.

2. My awesome hubby!! We've been through some awesome, crazy, horrible, and words can not describe stuff in the past 10 years we've been together. It's amazing what God can do in a marriage and I couldn't ask for a better hubby or best friend!

3. My crazy dog....we lost our first fur baby last year so it was hard to get another one. But we love him...even though he can drive me N.U.T.S!

4. My friends (who rock!) and my family (who rock too!). 
5. A great job teaching a grade level that I love.
6. And doing this blogging thing---what an amazing way to "meet" so many awesome people.
7. My church and my church family---it's like a home away from home.

I love seeing and hearing what my kiddos are thankful for each Thanksgiving. These are some of my favorites. What do you think the word PNS could be---when using inventive spelling?? LOL Keep reading to find out! :)

 I am thankful for sunshine. I am thankful for the sun and the sunshine. I like the sun. Sunshine shines in people's eyes.

(Still working on pictures in the next few) 
I am thankful for my cousin. I am thankful for my daddy. I am thankful for my ? (th??) Not sure.
I am thankful for my house.

 I am thankful for my toy. My toy is a princess (watch your minds people! LOL) Yes I went there...b/c using inventive spelling...well it would work LOL. If you aren't sure what word I thought it said---sound it out! ;)
Make sure you NEVER assume---always always always have the kiddos read their writing to you! 

 Of course--we have to be thankful for the xbox and the ds! :)
