Thanksgiving Activities

One thing I couldn’t do with the curriculum is build in holiday activities. I had to make it so that it could be used at any time, so here are some Thanksgiving activities for those who want them.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome.
    Superb Blog!
