This past week has been a whirlwind of a week. I started out the week by heading down to Nashville for two days to listen to these two amazing ladies present. I always love going to conferences to get new ideas and I feel so energized and ready to teach when I walk out the door. And it's a huge plus when you get to meet blogging friends in real life!!! Cannot wait to start using these amazing ideas in the classroom!

I finally made it back in the classroom on Wednesday for some Turkey fun! We had a blast learning about Turkeys and making some super cute turkeys!

We practiced making predictions about the book A Turkey For Thanksgiving. This is from Deanna Jump and DeeDee Wills' Guided Reading Pack.
Thursday was our Thanksgiving Feast. So many families came and it was such an amazing experience. Everyone decorated the cafeteria and I think it turned out great!
These are the projects from my class. They are from Cara Carroll and they are a freebie!!!
Then I received some heart breaking news. My grandfather passed away. He had a heart problem and was not doing well at all. I had planned to go to GA this weekend to visit with him but we were not able to make it in time. I left work Thursday after school and headed down to be with my family. He was the best grandfather and great grandfather that anyone could ask for. He will truly be missed but I know that he is up in heaven watching over us.
Next week is a two day week at school. I am leaving GA in just a few minutes to head back up and teach for two days. I do miss my little ones since I have not seen them much lately. Then Tuesday after work I will be heading back down to GA for Thanksgiving with my family! Even though I have not been at school much this past week, I am so ready for a short little break! Check out what we will be doing these next two days!
Now head on over to DeeDee's blog to see what others are up to this week? Do you have the week off or do you have to teach two days too?
