Count Your Blessings!

I was happy to lock the classroom door and walk out to the car with my kids and head home for a long weekend. It's time to count our blessings and enoy our families... and that is just what I plan to do. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!

Thanksgiving Feast of Fun

I cleaned out another file while by my mother's bedside...my Thanksgiving file.

These activities include a bit of language arts, math, craftivity, mini book, reading/comprehension, art, poetry, etc. It is now nicely tucked into my file cabinet in 35 pages...ready to be copied and enjoyed. Anyone up to cleaning out my Christmas files? :)

I apologize for the lack of blogging lately. My family was given a huge surprise a couple of weeks ago... our sweet mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Yesterday we brought her home from the hospital after receiving a double mastectomy. She is our rock and backbone of our family and we all plan to help her in anyway possible to make things as smooth and comfortable as possible.
