//ONE// This past weekend was a doozy!! Friendsgiving was celebrated on Saturday and
//TWO// Because this weekend was so crazy, I thought I'd give myself the day on Monday! So I took off and had my mom and dad over for a few hours. Dad did some work around the house and mom put up my Christmas tree...YAY!! So right now my house might just be a hybrid of Thanksgiving and Christmas!! (The peapod guy enjoyed it...LOL)
//THREE// Have you heard Adele's words on body image?? Read it here! Go her, right?!? I read about the article on brit+co and then saw this video after. This lady is knockin' out the hits! I didn't cry when I heard Hello, like so many others did, but I kinda shed a tear after this one!! I think it was the line about getting older....
//FOUR// I just finished this yesterday and am giddy about how it came out, I just had to share it!!
this lesson from Teachers Pay Teachers...and never used it! This year I was able to. We read The Gratitude Tree as a class in library, then for the checkout assignment, we wrote what we were grateful for on leaves. I love this lesson. It's great for a variety of grade levels, perfect for library!
//FIVE// And in a tough week that has seen political debate, countries on edge and people divided, I thought I'd share my favorite feel good story! A video of special ed teacher, Chris Ulmer, praising his students, has been all over the web. Having CP myself and being an aunt to 2 girls with special needs, I wish I could shake this guy's hand! What a great role model. He and his students will change the world! Take a moment to watch the video and all the sweet videos on his facebook page, Special Books by Special Kids! It's guaranteed to put a smile on your face!! I look forward to following their journey!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
