Incredible SALES and "An Old Lady Who..." FREEBIE

I hope each of you had a wonderful and restful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.  I want to share some pics of our Thanksgiving table.
My mom and my two boys colored each of the place mats and then we laminated them. My mom always does something creative to make the table festive!

Dessert was this beautiful home made apple tart. So delicious! Thanks, Mom!

Today I am off to conquer the shopping world bright and early with my mom and sister in law. It's a tradition in our family for the women to go shopping and out to lunch on Black Friday,while the men bond with the wee ones. I LOVE this day and look forward to it ALL year! Who knows what I will come back home with!

I am so excited to be participating in the Teachers Notebook and Teachers Pay Teachers sales this weekend! This Saturday, Sunday and Monday everything will be on sale in my TN store. TN is also giving an extra 10% off for those 3 days! Click on the picture below to take you to my store so you can load up your cart and then check out on the sale dates!


I will also have all my items on sale at my TpT store this Monday and Tuesday! TpT is also giving an additional 10% off, if you use the promo code: CMT12 during checkout.
I have just add several literacy units for the holidays and winter season. I hope you will check them out and load up during these fabulous sales!

To get everyone in the holiday spirit, I have a little FREEBIE I want to share with each of you. I just bought the book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bell to add to my class library for the holidays. It is such a cute book and I can't wait to share it with my kids. I created two activities to go with it. The first is a sequencing activity. After you read the book to the kids, they can color, cut and paste the story events in the correct order.
The next activity is a writing activity where the kids will color and cut out the old lady and then write and draw about one of the things she swallowed and why.

You can grab your freebie copy of these activities at my TpT store by clicking on the picture below.
Thanks for taking the time to read, follow and leave sweet comments on my little blog. I love sharing my ideas with you and want to thank each of you for helping fill my world of teaching with such joy. I appreciate all of you! 


  1. I love the placemats! What a great idea. We celebrated Tuesday since the hubby had to work yesterday. The kids and I watched tons of TV and ate leftover turkey.
    I am thankful for you!
