It just dawned on me tonight that Thanksgiving is next week. I mean, I've known that I have a break coming up, but I've been so focused on preparing report cards and getting ready for parent/teacher conferences that I completely forgot about the kids. I just went out and bought a few books to read and would like to follow up with some sort of craft for them to do on Friday before they leave for their break. A big theme I've come across in the books is "giving thanks/being thankful." I'm a first year teacher... any ideas out there? I've searched here and the web a bit, but just don't have the time to fully explore with grading and the other things I mentioned above hanging over my head. I'm already going to be late to bed b/c of my little venture out to the bookstore.... but I LOVE bookstores! I am so "thankful" in advance!
