I hope you're having a great weekend! I wanted to share a couple of quick but very special things. First off, we will be doing so many wonderful Thanksgiving related learning activities this coming week. One of my favs is our Thanksgiving Retelling Story Bracelet. As the kids are reading a poem about the first Thanksgiving, they are creating a bracelet with beads on a fuzzystick. You've probably seen this idea floating around for a while. I think it originated with the infamous Dr. Jean. I just love it so much. I updated the poem a tiny bit and can't wait to share it with my kids this coming week.
You can get your copy of the poem and directions HERE!
Oh...My...Goodness...I am so thankful for these kids and the gifts they give me every day!!
Thankful for you, as well!! Your encouragement has kept me on this joyful journey!!
What a cute idea, Nancy! I am going to use your poem to teach the Thanksgiving Story to my Spanish students in Madrid. They will love it! Thank you for generously sharing your creative ideas and activities!ReplyDelete
Let me know how it goes!!
Thank you so much! Your students are blessed to have you as their teacher.ReplyDelete

Love this idea! Thank you for referencing Dr. Jean. You are truely a professional.Love the tweaks you've done. I look forward to all of your blogs! I've seen this posted by others with no acknowledgement that it was created by Dr. Jean. Again, thanks for being such a professional and also being so generous!ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment! I do try to research the originator. Even though we feed off and grow ideas from each other as teachers. Have a great week!
I am thankful for....many things including YOU! I felt so lost as a single grade level teacher until I found you! Now I feel like I am part of your "team"-thanks for sharing....the 21 little lives that I share your experienced teaching ideas with each day say THANK YOU too! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
So blessed to help!! We are all part of the team!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!ReplyDelete

Nancy, I just want to say THANK YOU! Your ideas, posts, and love for what you do are AMAZING! I am a first grade teacher for 19 years, and you totally inspire me. I am very thankful for YOU and all of these fabulous ideas! You make it look totally easy breezy and fast. We all know our job is NOT easy breezy and fast!!! Haha! Thank you so much for sharing a piece of your classroom every day. I look forward to visiting your blog and seeing what is going on in your classroom. Always a hit!ReplyDelete
