Peek at Week: Gingerbread

These last few days off of work have been so nice and relaxing! Me and Haylee made the long drive down to Alabama to spend Thanksgiving with the hubs. We had a very nontraditional Thanksgiving dinner at Golden Corral but at least we were together and we enjoyed every moment. We then drove the 45 minutes to the closest city to conquer Black Friday shopping! It was a success! 9 stores completed by midnight and tons of goodies. I call that a success. Didn't buy many things for Haylee since she was with us but hey, that's what Cyber Monday is for. Speaking of Cyber Monday, my entire store will be 20% so come on by and load up your carts. Click the picture below to take you to my little shop.

Now onto a look back at last week. Last week we only had two days of school so we spent those days doing all things Thanksgiving! I had two amazing moms come in and help run the activities. It was a complete success!

We made Native American headbands and necklaces

We then made retelling bracelets for the First Thanksgiving. You can get the book and directions here for free!


We also practice our side word "this" with a Thanksgiving book from Maria Manore!

The highlight of the week was making homemade butter and tasting it. They loved it! We got the directions from Kristen Smith.


We ended our short week by making these adorable Turkey Cookies from Deanna Jump!


I forgot to by red and orange icing to make the beak and waddle, Teacher fail! But one of my amazing kiddos suggested using our candy corn instead. WIN!!!!!!


Now here is a look at what we will be up to next week. We will be introducing our new Elf friend. Cannot wait for them to meet him and share with you all of the mischievous things he gets into. We will also be diving into everything Gingerbread! One of my favorite units!!!! So excited!!! Come take a look at what we will be up to.
