Just a really quick post before the TPT sale closes! Towards the end of the summer I found the cutest Dr. Jean Nursery Rhyme Juke Box on Pinterest. It was perfect for our beginning of the year intro to nursery rhymes. Well, my kiddos ate it up! They loved it A LOT!! here. So, the other night when I was browsing, I came across a Christmas Juke Box, in fact there are quite a few different Juke Boxes that really creative people have made. You can find it here! I'm gonna go grab it. What a great way to have a classroom caroling party! Jingle Jingle!

Mrs. Miner's Monkey Business' store and chose a few of her units that I haven't purchased yet. Deanna Jump's units to stock up for January: Differentiated Kindergarten's storefront. Schoolgirl Style! website, Schoolgirl Style, but I must warn you, bring a napkin with you when you do because you will be drooling all over your keyboard~lol. No REALLY! I plan on doing a more extensive post all about her delicious products in the very near future, including how she single-handedly (no matter how I type that word it doesn't look right) inspired my classroom design this year! HURRY! Go visit her site! I needed something for the party that we are having after our Children's Christmas Musical at church and I found something that was perfect through Victoria Moore.

One of the things that I love to do in my
free time, spare time, wee hours of the morning, is to plan a party or style an event. For quite a few years I toyed with the idea of pursuing it as a profession. But then I decided I couldn't take it if my work became too open to criticism ~ eeek ~ so mostly I just do it on the side to help out family and friends and ALL OVER my own house!
One of my great sources of inspiration when it comes to styling anything is Amanda Parker from Shindig Parties to Go. That gal has got some party-swag!!! So, with the help of Amanda, we styled Thanksgiving!
Amanda's Shindig Parties to Go. I believe the kid's table goodies are even a freebie!
And checkout that adorable polka dot pumpkin!!

Well, that got your attention didn't it!! I want to give a shout out to another one of my favorites, Deanna Jump. You'll find her over at Mrs. Jump's Class. I border on stalking the poor soul. I mean the creativity just drips off of her 1st class Georgia accent ;) I own almost every unit she's ever created and by the end of the school year I plan to own every one of them. If I could teach every day the Deanna Jump way I would go home such a happy teacher. But alas, things like RTI and assessing get in the way. But this week, in honor of my favorite holiday and because I am so thankful for her, I did just that! All of the activities you see here are from her Thanksgiving Math & Literacy Fun which you can find on Teachers Pay Teachers. We made a variation of these darling Long Legged Turkeys (I combined Mrs. Jump's directions with a freebie from Mrs. Miner) Mrs. Jump's Kindergarten and I promise you, you'll get some inspiration of your own! And when you're done enjoy some Barry Manilow on me!
