Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone. That means it is officially the Christmas season. TPT is throwing a HUGE Cyber Sale on December 1st and 2nd...and I'm participating of course! My store will be 20% off on Monday and Tuesday, plus, if you use the code, there's more discounts!!!
So dash on over to my TPT Store and enjoy all the savings! Why not start the new year with great new lesson plans and activities, right?!
Where has the time gone?! First of all, can't believe I've only done two posts in November so far...that was not the plan :/ Things have been a bit crazy, but I'm here to remind you all of one of my freebies.
Thanksgiving Mad Lib!!! How fun is this? I'm going to give it to my 10th graders this Friday before break...they love getting to do fun little things like this.
So have a wonderful last week before Thanksgiving break, and enjoy this little freebie to hand out to your kids as a little treat :)
Veteran's Day is the day to stop and remember all those that serve and have served our country. My grandfather fought in WWII for the Army, and my boyfriend currently serves in the Corps. With so much senseless violence out there, we should thank those that protect our freedoms daily.
On Friday at school, we had our annual Veteran's Day assembly. We always have a guest speaker that is either in, or has been in, the military. We play the National Anthem and then we also play all the medleys for the different branches. If the students know someone in the military [relative usually] we ask them to stand during that branch's medley. It's pretty cool to see how the military reaches all of us in some way. We then end with the playing of Taps, and the students leave the assembly quietly. It's a nice assembly.
I'm not sure where the tradition started with having a sale...I'm hoping it was to give Veterans a break as a 'thank you'. So since that's what I'm hoping it's for...I'm throwing a Veteran's Day sale as well on my TPT Store. All paid products will be 15% off :) The sale will run Monday the 10th [the Marine Corps' 239th birthday] and Tuesday the 11th [Veteran's Day].
It is officially the Holiday Season!! I love that the leaves are finally starting to turn colors, it actually rained Friday night and some of Saturday, and the weather is even a little cooler. I love it!
Saturday afternoon/night we went to the 239th USMC Birthday Ball on the USS Midway. It was very nice and we only got sprinkled on for a few minutes and then the rain cloud passed :) All day Saturday I was busy getting ready before it started at 3pm, hence the Currently being a day late :/
And then today was spent going to a movie [Fury] and decorating for Thanksgiving...LOVE fall decorations!
And without further ado, here is my November Currently that Farley provides :)
