Giving Thanks...and Looking to the Holidays (FREEBIE)

I try to give thanks daily through prayer but after this week's events and it being Thanksgiving early morning (can't believe I'm up so late)...I feel even more thankful than normal.  My youngest son had major breathing issues on bad in fact that we ended up being sent from the doctor's office by ambulance to the hospital.  Praise the Lord, he has improved greatly!

So instead of getting a good night's rest for the first time in a few days, I'm here pecking away at the computer, trying to get ahead on some school stuff so I can try to enjoy the rest of the break.

If you've followed me for awhile, you know that this is my state's first year using Common Core.  I can't believe that we're getting ready to begin our third ELA unit!  We are going to be focusing on Famous Inventors, Musicians, and Artists and we will be researching and writing biographies.  There are many graphic organizers out there to help with this process but none of them had exactly what I wanted my students to focus on.  So I whipped up this little packet of note taking pages that I wanted to share with you all as a thanks for being such awesome followers!

I also added my newest packet of Literacy Based Holiday Activities/Crafts!  These were activities that I came up with last year and we had so much fun completing them. I didn't think to take pictures last year but this year I plan to snap away.  If you're interested in this packet, please check it out at my TPT store.  (Or wait until Monday when it...and everything in my store...will be on sale!!!)
By the way, if you've read this far, just as another sign of thanks I will give my holiday packet to the first two people who comment.  Be sure to leave your email address!
Happy Thanksgiving!!! 


  1. I'm so pleased to hear your son is doing better. You were up late and I'm up early. I often find it easierbto get things done when everyone else is asleep.

    I'd love to have a copy of your holiday craftivities. Thanks for sharing.
