Super Quick Sunday Post

I stink! I admit it. My visual plans have been MIA and my only hope is that Thanksgiving Break brings not only a little bit of free time, but some more energy as well. I have a million ideas of great things I'd love to create and about 2 seconds of free time in my life.  So hopefully break will do me good. 
Until then, I have a mishmash of a few freebies for you in the document below.  It has a mini-book I'll be using, my text talk lesson for Gail Gibbons' Thanksgiving Day book, and a word work center for long vowels.  It's a roll a word center, so you'll need the large clear pocket dice like THESE.  These freebies aren't anything special, but maybe you can use something.  Click the picture below.
We'll also be continuing work on these centers this week: 
I am so thankful for y'all. Blogging has brought me fabulous friends, a renewed love of teaching and a place to find and share great teaching ideas. To show my appreciation for you still checking in on this lowly little blog, leave a comment below about what you are thankful for. I'll choose a winner tomorrow and they can choose any 10 items from TpT store.

A friend of mine received some devastating news about her mother yesterday, and I cannot imagine what she is going through right now. I am so thankful my parents, sisters, and even grandmothers are healthy. I know far too many people who are not.

  67. If you find that energy over break, could you please point me in the direction to look for mine? Every year is getting more and more busy...and it doesn't look like that is going to change!

    I am truly appreciative of bloggers who have reinspired me (and I see a couple of them posted above me...it is wonderful that they have time to read other blogs in addition to writing theirs!) after I felt in a rut. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart...otherwise I wouldn't be as happy as I am today!
