After Thanksgiving Sale

I don't know about you guys, but I am one T.I.R.E.D teacher.  Between eating all the delicious food and countless hours of shopping, I am exhausted.  But I am very thankful that I had these days off to enjoy with my friends and family.  Plus, I'm getting caught up on some much needed house work.  Ha!

I'm having an after Thanksgiving sale in both of my shops.  The Teacher's Notebook Sale started today and will run through Monday.  No code needed!

My shop will be on sale at Teacher's Pay Teachers beginning on Monday and ending on Wednesday.  Enter code CMT12 at checkout.

{Thanks so much to The 3AM Teacher for creating this cute button!}

Happy Holidays Friends!  
Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving Break.

Teacher's Notebook & Turkey Ideas

Guess who made the Teacher's Notebook Newsletter???  
Yep, this teacher.  
I was so thrilled when I opened my email to find my shop as a featured shop.  It is such an honor to be featured and I am very blessed to be able to help other teachers.

This is the beginning of some much needed sunshine in my life.
 I just know it is! <3

Yesterday, we had students from the middle school, which is across the street, come to the 2nd grade classes.  They read and did two activities with the kids.  I could tell the middle school kids were nervous, but they did an outstanding job.

The kids made these "Missing Piece" faces from the book by Shel Silverstein.

Then, they created hand and foot print turkeys.  The kids kept saying the feet looked like potatoes.  Ha!

I wanted to share some fun ideas that I borrowed from Amy Lemons to prepare my students for Thanksgiving.  If you haven't heard of her, go check out her amazing ideas.  I borrow her ideas all of the time to help reinforce skills in my class.  My students created these darling bowls of mashed potatoes using her thanksgiving pack.  The kids listed 3 things they love about Thanksgiving.

And last, meet our "I'm Thankful for Turkey".  Isn't he just the sweetest?  I made him myself and the kids write things they were thankful for on the feathers.  

Have a blessed Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
