Thanksgiving is a day time to give thanks for all we are given. It's also day for some turkey fun and feasting. With my students I watched a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving...my favorite!!! And then had a Snoopy style feast. Of course I am the biggest turkey of all!!!
Once again thus year we are having our after school homework club. We call it AOC. I couldn't do it without the help of the Fort Morgan High School clubs. I'd like to give a shout out to these students. Thank you for all your help.

I also want to give a shout out and a huge Muchas Gracias to mi amiga Christina Ordaz. She is such a doll...she made some amazing homemade Pan de Muerto. That reminds me...one of my little second grade boys was eating it and said "I don't know why they call it dead bread. It doesn't taste dead, it tastes pretty good to me." It made me giggle and just goes to show that sometimes kids have a lot to learn even in their native language.
Here is our altar.
I've been here...just a little overwhelmed. I've taken on time extra duties to help out and the word swamped comes to mind. I haven't had the chance to finish any new products...start yes...finish NO. Yikes.
It's all good though. I have several new students this year and the levels of English vary. It is so exciting and challenging at the same time. I will share some photos of my classroom since the beginning of the school year...
