I know that many of you have this whole week off. . . I wonder . . . Are you the same people who had Veterans Day off too?
We did not have any days off for that. . . but we do have to teach only 2 days this week.
And thanks to all of you, I know exactly what I will be doing on those two days. Did I tell you that I have 2 college students from Trine University in Angola, Indiana? They have been with me for 6 weeks and have been learning more about how to become teachers. They are GREAT! Tuesday is their last day. So for the next two days, they have to pretend they are subs in my room and I get to do some DRA2 assessments while they follow my lesson plans. . . isn't that the bomb? I'm uber excited to be able to get some of these done while having someone else cover my room.
Some of the things they will be doing come from YOUR blogs. I have grabbed many things from you and will put them to use on these two days. That will be fun, informational and very helpful to my students and to these two college students. They will go back into their college classrooms until Christmas and then one of them will do her student teaching in January. The other one will student teach next fall. They are ready!
I am just like the major retailers and I'm going to show you a Christmas activity that I made even before Thanksgiving is done. . . I know. . .I know. . . I should be patient. .. but I just can't! And if I know you at all, I know that you too are looking for some Christmas things early so you can copy them, laminate them and cut them out so they are ready for your kids to use all during December.

I hope that you find this helpful and that your kids learn something from it.
Have a good week, no matter how many days you have off. Watch what you eat. . . . drink. . . and shop! Oh yea! I'll be out there shopping but not at the crack of dawn! Look out Kalamazoo. . . Here we come!
