Thanksgiving Week

What a busy week!  We fit in some school work with all the fun activities.  We took Great Grandma to lunch for her birthday and then shopping for Christmas dresses.  We had our second Pizza Hut Book It party for Selena. At the library, I picked out some new easy-reader books and they were a huge hit.  We have hit a block with our reading lately, and this helped get some motivation to keep trying.  I think we were in a rut with Bob and phonics readers.  (She especially likes "Hop, Hop, Hop")  We also practiced setting the table and making place cards.

  Cleaning the floor before setting the Thanksgiving table.  

 Our friendly Elf on the Shelf, Chris, made his appearance! 
 Our new "pets," cast offs from the public school's third grade classes.  SNAILS!  We've had some before, the sure make for interesting entertainment! 

 Our place cards, we made each person a little Pioneer, Indian, or Pilgrim and Selena wrote everyone's names on a leaf doily.  
 The table, set with some yummy bread and dip and my little helper!  Thanks Bean! 

Snuggle Bunny time!

Thanksgiving books from the library...
We especially liked "Thanksgiving Mice" "A Turkey for Thanksgiving" and "Setting the Turkeys Free"
