Party Pilgrim Style -Visual Plans

Before I start my visual plans post, I want to address the post I wrote earlier this week.

I am truly amazed at the response from my personal post.  I still continue to read and even receive more amazing feedback.  I am so truly thankful for the amazing opportunities that blogging has brought. It seems that so many people are going through something difficult.  I have thought about each of your stories this week and felt that burden of hardship.  I am praying for you friends.   I also continue to go back and reread the responses.  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.   I don't have the right words to truly express what it all means to me.  I really appreciate the comments and the feedback.  My prayer list is long but that just means I have a lot of friends!

Thankfully, (most definitely the word of the month) things are calming down in regard to conferences and holidays requiring "crazy" attire.

But lo and behold, Thanksgiving is truly sneaking right up.  Here are my visual plans for the week.  There are many freebies in this week's plans.  Plus a couple new things that I am excited to use this week!

I love a great book study and this is the perfect week to get lost in an amazing Native American Story about a young boy trying to find his place in the tribe.  Click the cover of the unit to see last year's post on this book study.
 Below if you click on the actual book image to get the book information or order yourself a copy.
I use the copy from the library for our book study.
There's a math tub included in the book study.  (I forgot to add it to the math tubs on my visual plans!!!!)

Another new development for us this week in the visual plans is Edit with Eddie.  We started last week on this unit and the kids are in love with Eddie.  (or possibly the colored pencils they get to use when they edit) It's all so new and exciting!  We are working on conventions so this unit fits right in perfectly!

And for those of you who like to get WAY ahead... I am going to show you my brand new math centers coming up in December.

For the rest of us that are hanging on my our white knuckles...don't worry it's not happening quite yet!
These are the art projects I do in the month of December.  There are 5 total projects with templates, read aloud ideas, and writing to go with each project. 
 Enjoy your Sunday!  Have a Fabulous Week! 


  1. I am crazy about your newest packs!!! You never cease to amaze me with your creations!

  5. I have been using the common core math and it is wonderful, can't wait for the December one. Thanks,

  6. I suppose since ALL of the stores already have their Christmas stuff on display, you can too! But it all truly needs to slow down a bit! haha :D

    I LOVE Tommie DePaola books!

  7. Reagan, sometimes it's so easy to think that we are alone in our struggles, and that everyone else has it all together. Life can be scary sometimes when burdens are so heavy.

    Sharing your personal struggle must have taken courage and a great deal of caring for your followers and anyone who may stumble upon your post. Thank you for reminding us all to keep faith in God and His timing.

    Prayers and continued blessings to you and your family.

  9. Wow Reagan! Blessings are flowing your way at last! Sooo delighted for you. You are an inspiration to me. Thanks for all you do to revitalize teachers who are bogged down by so much these days. You are uhm-A-zing!

  10. Hi,
    First of all - I love your blog and ideas!!! I downloaded your Thanksgiving Poems and Chants packet (which I'm excited to use this week). I just wanted you to know that I found a couple misspelled words. I didn't want to put it on TpT in the questions, but I wasn't sure where to let you know. There were 2 I found in the Albuquerque Turkey song (hope I spelled that right-ha ha!). I hope it's ok that I posted this here, but I know I would want to know.

    Hope you have a nice week! Always love seeing your great activities on here :)
