In classroom news….My kiddos have started practicing to add.
They are doing so well.
 A lot of them have actually been adding for a while now----they just never knew what the technical term for it was when they were putting pieces together from two different sets!
Take a look at the activity we did yesterday to practice adding.
I gave them snap cubes and a miniature Popsicle stick that had a (+) on it. I wanted to hold them accountable for that sets of that they were making so I gave each of them a each piece of paper to record their addition problems on.
Take a look at some of their great work samples:
Have I told you lately how good their handwriting is getting??  
WOW---my kiddos are doing great!
I'm such a proud teacher!!!
Okay, now go!  Go fill your TpT cart---and don't feel bad about it either! :)  
You are teacher helping another teacher!!!

Thanksgiving Thankfulness!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope your day has been filled with nothing less than complete happiness, joy and tons of great food!!!

I personally have so much to be thankful for! I have a great family, healthy children, supportive parents, best friends, a job that fulfills me to my core, a blog that lets me connect with others and TpT store that allows me to express my creativity!!! I am also beyond grateful for the opportunity to share this Thanksgiving with my husband--- with him being military, we consider it a blessing when we get to share any holiday together! We never know what deployments have in store for us from year to year.

I would like to leave you with a funny ecard and some sight word turkeys that my kiddos did before break! We were 'thankful for sight words they knew'... Aren't they cute??? They were from Kindergarten Smorgasboard's Thanksgiving pack!
