Thanksgiving Freebie-Thank You Grams

Are you like my Colorado teacher friends and have ALL of next week off?!  If so, then this might be too late and I am seriously jealous of you.  If you're like me and still have a few days to go before break then this freebie might be just in time.  

I use Thank You Grams every year just before the break for students to write notes to past teachers and staff members at our school.  I always LOVE finding sweet notes from past students in my mailbox at the end of a long day! 

Two full pages as well as a half page version can be downloaded by clicking on one of the pictures below. 

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your break!  We're almost there!!

Veterans Day November Read Aloud

It's November!  Month of falling leaves, chilly mornings, and pumpkin pie!  Hooray!

If you're looking for a fun read aloud for this week (or month) try Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle.  It's perfect for Veterans Day or for a Thanksgiving (so many things to be thankful for) story.  I am a giant sucker for a good animal story and this one has it all!  It's such a fantastic story of friendship, loss, love, and perseverance.      
Here's a video clip of with Brian and Nubs on The Today Show.  At one point Nubs attempts to lick himself, but it's short lived.  :)

Love, love, love Nubs! and hope your kids do too,
