These are some of my favorite Thanksgiving books! Can you believe that I have JUST pulled them out? LOL! That tells you just how crazy things have been! I still had pumpkin books out on the shelves!
I have brought back a couple favorite crafts for the season. We are going to make dried bean candle holders. They always look so beautiful!

Click on the images to check out the directions. I change it up a bit and use tea lights. I have the kids mix the white glue and beans in a Dixie cup, then press a tea light into the mixture to leave a dent. After it dries, we tie raffia around the beans and put the tea light back into the holder. They look great for Thanksgiving! Plus, it’s a perfect project for a 2 day week!
We also make a table top turkey that is from a really old copy of CopyCat – remember that teacher magazine?!? I don’t have a picture because we plan to make them tomorrow, but here is a link to a blog with the directions and the recipe that goes along with it:
Well, November is flying by! Our first report cards went out and we had parent-teacher conferences (I actually have my last after school today). I have to say, teaching a new grade, while exciting and energizing, can along make you feel stressed out and like you don’t always know what you’re doing. Fortunately, my parent conferences gave me a great boost and I feel like my students are growing and they are enjoying school. You can’t ask for more, right?
If I don’t pop in any time soon, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
