Happy-almost-Thanksgiving everyone!! We are in school for a few more days and I’ve been working on a couple of resources to keep my class following the usual routine, while celebrating the upcoming holiday a bit.
And I’d love to share these new resources…as a small token of my thanks and appreciation for you!
First up, I have some special spelling lists planned for the week. These spelling lists focus on four to six different affixes and roots that all have a Thanksgiving tie-in. These differentiated, editable lists can be found in my store…just click on the image below to download:

(Perhaps I should have warned you first, I am not the best artist!!
My 5th graders are always kind to me about it though!)
If you would like to grab this graphic organizer, please click on the image below:
I hope some of you might be able to use these resources!
Unless you are already on your break…which leads me to my big question:
Are you in school this week? Or has your Thanksgiving break already begun?
