First off, here's to all the Veterans out there, sending our love and support! Also, here's to a day off, right guys??? I've been looking forward to blogging my little heart out and getting all my activities ready for the week! How are you spending Veteran's Day?
This week was all about turkey day and hearing screenings!
I ended up finding these great books at Barnes and Noble - love that educator discount - to use for November. I had some great leaf, fall, etc. books but none with turkeys! I'm using "The Turkey Train" with this activity that will be on the blog tomorrow, but check the link for a preview! They're both cute turkey stories, lighthearted and fun...trying to give little love to the turkeys during t-day!
Not only am I getting ready for Thanksgiving, but I'm super set for the holidays as well! Hanukkah is coming insanely early this year, so I had to grab some books for my kiddos who have no clue what the holiday is. I also had to grab some Christmas books because, well, they're adorable! I found this fun book by Stephen Krensky about how Santa got his job...cannot wait to read it!
As with every new season, holiday, month, breath..a new door is created! I'm pretty excited about this new one I'm working on. The kiddos will be crafting the turkeys that you see on the door. Thank you, Michael's! Talking Turkey is our bulletin board theme as well, so you'll be seeing a lot of what we worked on hanging up in the later picture! We are gobbling up all the thanksgiving idioms - talk turkey, I'm stuffed, cold turkey, etc.
So much fun! Love a good holiday theme!!
Thursday and Friday we spent giving back! We had graduate students come Thursday to test students in our school. We had such a large response, we extended it until Friday and my fellow SLP and I did the rest of the testing! One thing is for sure, I'm am SO happy my school had a full audiological clinic! Also, I'm happy I remembered what I was doing! LOL So there, I guess today I'm thankful for my audiological practicum!
When we weren't testing hearing or frantically preparing progress reports, I was working on our bulletin board! Talking Turkey all the way! I went a little overboard with the 3D turkey, but how fun is it!?! I had left over cardstock, so I printed a letter on each page and taped it together. I found a ton at the dollar store and Party City. Even found things on sale at Party City, wahoo!
ANYWAYS, hope you had a wonderful week! What are you doing for T-day? How are you making thanksgiving speechy??
