Arrival Day

 Tweet!  I found this bird at the teacher store. It has a sensor on the bottom and it tweets when you hold it in your palm.
 The reading class watched The Snowman (no words) and analyzed the characters, plot, and conflict.  Yesterday was really our first snowy day of the year.
 My friend Marjo is a secretary at our school.  She came in to show me the advent quilt she made.  Isn't it pretty?  

 Some of the little green seams are pockets!  Clever!
 The back is super cute, too!  Sweet Santas!
Here's a selfie.  I like the gold-ball earring,do you?  I'm so freckly.  I'm looking at you!
I must put my walking shoes on and wrangle the vacuum cleaner one more time before my mom comes.  I'm picking her up this afternoon.  Wheeee!  Let the Thanksgiving begin!

A selfie! Love it.

Cute birdie. The advent calendar is wonderful. And the Santa fabric is perfect.

Such a good teacher you are.

Have a wonderful day. It sounds like you are going to be as busy as a bee.
You know I had to ask my kids what a selfie was, I didn't know.
I hadn't heard that word until last week.
Well enjoy your Mama,
Have a lovely weekend getting caught up. I love your blue bird.

I hope you have a wonderful time with your family this Thanksgiving. You make fun times. I love your bird. I must admit to you that I sort of hated the snowman book. I am lazy and I want someone else to write the story!!!! Isn't that terrible?

When do you stop school, beautiful lady? Your mum will be so pleased to be with you. I do love those Santas. Don't they look as if they're all on the way home for a restorative cup of tea? I'm glad they look happier than Raymond Briggs' Santa, whom we still love too!

I have gold ball earings too - they are tidy. I can't wait for your mum to come! I feel excited for you!
Have lots of magic moments. Betty x

Hi, I am your newest follower - also a teacher, only I teach high school. Looking forward to more of your fun posts! Maybe I will even get some great ideas from you. I teach a very low level remedial reading class to high schoolers who read on a 3rd-7th grade level. I am always looking for ways to engage them! Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

I'm glad you liked the can can dancing turkeys. I thought they would suit your sunny nature down to the ground. They made me giggle lots.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with your mama and your famiily around you. Give a special hug to Bill.

I'm looking forward to my Thanksgiving dinner at church!

I am in LOVE with the Santa fabric on the reverse of your friend's advent quilt. Wow!

And, I love the way your glasses frame your beautiful eyes.

Happy November, friend!

I find those beautiful cloth advent calendars so inspiring -- I've always made one, and one of these years, I shall :) Probably not THIS year!! Oh, Pom, I do love your happy, sparkly blue eyes. And your freckles are adorable. Thanks for your smiley eyes :)
