Happy Thanksgiving




I am thankful for many things and I'm especially thankful to have a job that I love.  Teaching is such an adventure!  It is hard, yes, but anything really worth doing is going to be a challenge.  Teaching is new every day - it is a room full of amazing children who are counting on you to guide them and teach them and have fun with them!  It makes the job a lot easier if you have a supportive school community.  I'm also thankful for that - I work and am able to collaborate with some very talented and giving teachers!  I am mostly thankful for my family though - 2 sweet, incredible, funny teenagers and a husband that I adore!  We have a lot of fun together!

I teach 5th grade and I love this age!  Sometimes these little nuggets can be a bit of a challenge though- when I asked them what they are thankful for, some said "nothing".  Now, I understand that some of them come from some pretty tough situations but still, there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for!  I found this free activity from Scholastic that was just perfect for my class - it really helped to flip their attitude!  Check it out!
