Thanksgiving & A Giveaway!!

I had every intention of doing 5 for Friday this week. Then Friday came and I went to one of my kiddos soccer games. Seriously- little kids sports are the best! Good news is I came back and did not abandon my poor blog again!

The week before Thanksgiving my school has "Turkey Races," which can only be described as the best idea ever. It truly is one of my favorite things we do every year. 

Frozen turkeys (dressed as turkeys with feather hats and all) come out on scooters and the kids push them using brroms. It is a relay race for k-5 students. Each teacher picks two students to participate. Let me tell you, if you think little kids sports is awesome watching the K babies push a turkey with a broom is the cutest thing ever!

Then the teachers race. My fiance (who teaches fifth grade) and I were on the same team. I'm not going to lie I was super excited about winning these hats!

My kiddos made these pilgrim people the week before break also. They are from Caitlin Clabby's Teachers Pay Teachers store. Definitely wish list these for next year! They are so cute in the hallway!

Also I had two students complete the United States puzzle!! I love listening to them talk about how to put it together-- such strategy!

Lastly, my blogging buddy Lori from The Kindergarten Pod is hosting a 100 follower giveaway! I was so honored that she asked me to participate in her celebration (especially since I was MIA from the blogging world for a while!)

Check out her 100 follower giveaway for your chance to win my Christmas Elves math and literacy packet!!

You could also win tons of other prizes from these amazing bloggers!!

Back-- Again!

It has been awhile since I have blogged. The last few months have been B.U.S.Y!!

I signed up for my masters for Ed Leadership in July. The first few months were an adjustment but just when school gets busy my masters seemed to kick into overdrive. So this was my set up for what felt like too many days. 

I just registered for class number 4!! I was happy to see that we get breaks for Thanksgiving and Christmas!!!

We also purchased our dream house! It was a lot of coordinating with the sale of the old house and there were many days where it looked like it wasn't going to work out. But it did and we could not be happier. 

Now we have rooms to decorate and lots of furniture to buy!! Much of my intersession break was spent painting and repurposing some old furniture for a few of the rooms!

I will be back at the end of the week (promise!!) to show you some exciting Thanksgiving things!
