Thanksgiving Blog Hop 2015

      The Classroom clique proudly presents our Thanksgiving hop! Jump from blog to blog and gather some wonderful Thanksgiving traditions, recipes, and freebies.

     I have so much to be thankful for! Over this past year has been a real struggle for me. Doing TPT full time, helping my sister take care of her 3 beautiful children, and managing my seizures has made me strong and so thankful for every thing I have. I thank my family, especially my mother who was always there for me. My friends who still put up with me and antics. My friends in the Classroom Clique. Lastly, I thank my followers. You guys keep me running and motivated, especially through the exciting moments and the toughs moments. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

      As is tradition in our house, I do the baking. It's mostly desserts. A few years ago, I challenged myself to make an apple pie from scratch (minus the pie dough). I have to say it was the most delicious pie we ever had. It was gone the next day. The recipe is very simple. I found it online at Pilsbury.com for Perfect Apple Pie. I added some a little powder sugar and apple juice to the filling to sweeten up the Granny Smith apples I used.

    I figured out how to do the Lattice topping for the pie crust. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I used eggs whites as a glaze for the top and covered the edges with foil (to stop the burnt edges).

     It came out beautifully and served with vanilla ice cream, it was the best dessert I had ever made.

Each year at Thanksgiving I make a new dessert so my sister asked me to make peach pie. I'm up for the challenge! =)

     I don't have many Thanksgiving games in my store, but I made new a freebie just for this blog hop. Moreover, it's a forever freebie!

In this game, students use dry erase boards to write the lower case letter that matches the capital letter.

This game covers all 26 letters of the alphabet. It's a perfect game to review to check for understanding.

Students are given the capital letter and on their dry-erase boards, write the lowercase letter. Great for the entire class or in small groups. Students can also practice individually on the iPad.

You can grab this game here:

Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to stop by other teacher bloggers for more recipes, traditions, and freebies!
