It's hard to think all the way back to Monday but we did get a lot accomplished this week in the little bit of time we had.  Monday and Tuesday was all about Pilgrims.  We finished up our cut apart book from Deanna Jump.  They turned out so good!
(I love that their houses have bunk beds!)
They all did such a great job on these and we have had some really great conversations about the Pilgrims.  When we started this unit my kiddos knew very little about Pilgrims.  Now that we are getting to the end I can safely say they are turning into little experts!

 CGI problems are going great!  We have been working on these for 2 weeks now and we have done addition problems with the unknown in all positions.  So this week I threw a little curve ball at them and gave them a compare problem.  When you prepare the kiddos they have no problem solving any kind of problem!  They (almost) all worked this out without hesitation.  The interesting part is that only 1 or 2 saw this as a subtraction problem.  Everyone else did it  as a counting up problem!

 Thanksgiving dinner was a blur, I was a mess (well the front of my shirt was), but there were a lot of people fed and it all was delicious!  I did my best to help my mom so she wouldn't have to do everything but she is hard to keep up with!  I was beat at the end of the day.  My hubby let me sleep in until 10 a.m. this morning so I am fully recovered.
 I didn't take many pictures, but I did get this one of my little cousin.  Isn't he adorable?

So now that the eating celebrations are behind us I needed to stay away from the kitchen so I sat down and worked on another one of my sorting activities.  I am working on getting a complete set of sorting activities finished for Word Work that will sustain me for the whole year.  This one is all about Short/Long vowels.  Stayed tuned for even more!  A quick click on the pic will take you to my store.  You can follow me their too to get updates when I post new items. :)
