Thankful for YOU!

I am so thankful for this amazing community of teachers and all of your support over the past few years. I wanted to share this freebie with you that I created with my students. I love to send home beautiful and meaningful  projects that families can display in their homes for holiday gatherings. I think you'll find this one is the perfect "take home craft".

I know many of you have the week off for Fall break, super jelly! We have school Monday and Tuesday and I'm planing my annual Stone Soup Feast. I made a quick pack of printables that can easily be paired with any of the versions of Stone Soup. 

For many of you this may have come to late... pin for next year? :) I also know that some people choose to use Stone Soup as part of their community units. You will find the printables included in this pack are NOT Thanksgiving specific and can easily be used at other points in the year.

I was so thrilled when I came across the perfect stone to add to my stone soup on, where else, Amazon!! Oh my word, it's going to be so cute. You can find it by clicking here.

As another special thank you you can find the gratitude vocabulary worksheets for FREE by clicking the picture and downloading above.  

Is Thanksgiving really here ALREADY? I don't know about you but it snuck up on me this year and I've been in full scramble mode.  I do this every year.  My "Clark Griswald" syndrome sets in and I start envisioning this perfect holiday season with all the crafts I'll lovingly create,  the jam packed weekends with parties and events that I will have the perfect outfit for, and perfect gifts that I will thoughtfully purchase for everyone on my list. Do you see what I've done here?? Can you say unrealistic expectations? I'm really going to attempt to slow it down and live in the moment this holiday season. Your advice for how to do this is WELCOME! lol


I'm already planning EPIC things for my classroom in the month of December. Stay tuned for my Winter Wonderland... maybe. :) I'm envisioning snowflakes (window clings), twinkly lights, and fake snow. We'll see if I can pull it off along with the 400 other things I've got going on. AmIrite?

I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving with family and friends. I have so much to be Thankful for this year. I've been blessed with an amazing neighborhood and neighbors who are truly some of my bestest friends. We celebrated a little early with our 2nd annual Friendsgiving yesterday.


For those of you who are like me and will be HOME on Black Friday because I can't handle the crowds and end up buying more for me than anyone, a bunch of us, from The Primary Punchbowl, are having Black Friday sales. Look for the images below this Friday! 

Thanks for stopping in! Leave me some love below. I'd love to know what you're up to in your classroom this holiday season!
