I took last Friday off from posting my Five for Friday. I was busy having holiday shows for my stationery business and it was a crazy week. I went to school all day Monday and Tuesday but was in and out {mostly out!}Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Are you doing any Christmas shopping yet?


I posted this picture on Instagram this week.. but some LUCKY DUCK teacher will be happy, happy, happy to get this stash of personalized goodies this year. 2 notebooks and 1 portfolio! This parent knew exactly what a teacher would love!

IMG_0353We have been studying Daniel and the Lion’s Den in Bible class and these lion directed drawings were a perfect addition.


I have done these lions a few times over the last years- and the original idea came from this drawing book.


I had originally planned to mount them on construction paper before hanging them up but we ran out of time. I drew them on white cardstock.

We had a fun little Thanksgiving program Monday night. These were the super simple decorations that I made that sat in front of the stage. The program was called Attitude of Gratitude and was a PERFECT Thanksgiving message! It was also short and sweet!

Did you see these FREE super precious Thanksgiving coloring sheets from Krista {Creative Clips}? I saw these on Teachers Pay Teachers on the day that it literally rained and rained and rained and rained .. and RAINED! And, they seemed like the perfect inside recess activity! My first graders loved them!! Thank you Krista!!
