Five for Friday...Almost Thanksgiving

I've done a terrible job of taking pictures lately, but I figured I'd post for Five for Friday and Freebie Friday anyways. 

First, here's my freebie.  Just a simple writing template we are using as part of our Thanksgiving placemats.

And, here are some turkeys we made for our windows.  We made them last year and I totally forgot to put wings on them.   This year, I almost forgot again, and then one of my kids asked.  So I hurriedly cut out wings while they put the rest of their turkeys together.  Turned out well though!
We've done lots of other fun turkey activities, but I don't have any pictures.  And, we've been working on some poems and songs for our Thanksgiving program next Tuesday.  My favorite Thanksgiving song is "Give Thanks" by Jack Hartmann.  I taught the kids sign language for it, and they love it! 

Our school has a Girls on the Run program, and some of my former students are doing it this year.  This is me and my running buddy after our practice 5k yesterday.  She was so proud, and so was I!  Our big race is in less than a month!
And...I've been updating some of my TpT files.  By request, I've updated all my Holidays around the World books, so they're easier to print double-sided.  You can buy them separate or all four in a bundle.  I am planning to add at least two more holidays (Eid and Diwali) to the book bundle, so if you buy now, you will definitely save some money!  Check them out by clicking on the pictures!
