After a long day of getting out boxes to Christmas decor I finally got our tree up. Now I have just got to keep the cat away from it. So far he has already slapped a ball off of it, chewed on the limbs, and pulled the lights (note the bottom of the tree) and its only been up a day. One year my youngest knocked the whole tree over so I guess worse things could happen. We just need some presents under it now!!
Here is a story about an art teacher and a group of children, all with different learning disabilities showing the world that they are capable of creating wonderful artwork. With help from a dedicated teacher these children work to collaborate their first professional art gallery exhibition. I would recommend this story to all parents, teachers, therapists, and people in the medical field. Its proof that people with disabilites in one area, exceed in others.
Go to "I'm A Artist" Website to purchase a download or DVD.
In closing I have gotten educated about store policies so if I missed out on an item today there is a good chance I will get another chance (plus I got to sleep in).
The craft I decided on was also from Family Fun website, it was called Dinnertime. It called for a paper bag, paper lunch bags, paper towels, scrap paper, tape, scissors, a staple and a willing child. I thought this was fun, but I did not have to wear it. I told them they had to wear them to Grandma's house tomorrow. I bet they won't do it. Hey, they were fun to make and made a good picture to show them when they are older.
Storytime. We read one Thanksgiving book and then one that wasn't. The first one was "Thelonius Turkey Lives" by Lynn Rowe Reed and the other was "Mouse Was Mad" by Linda Urban. I think me and the boys really enjoyed the Mouse book plus it had a good lesson about how you look to others when you get mad. A lesson is always a plus when reading to my kids.
I think now we are ready for Thanksgiving!!
