Still Being Thankful....and Writing Station Themed Vocabulary Freebie

I started off this week being so eager for Thanksgiving to come...Now that it has come and gone I feel almost a bit...rushed. Having four children, I can't help but wonder how many more holidays will come and go where everyone will be together in one place. Granted, my children are still young yet, but as a parent I sometimes forget to cherish every moment shared...<sigh>.

Okay, this evening I am NOT attempting any fancy blogging shtuff (as my previous posts have not been displayed as I intended). This poor blog has been ignored and left to fend for itself. Lol. I dreamed of being super tech savvy and create a blog like those that I covet (Clutter-Free Classroom, One Extra Degree,What the Teacher Wants, and Inspired Apple - to name a few). 

This evening, I have a simple share, a vocabulary or themed word sheet for your writing center. In my class of firsties, more than half of them are ELLs, which is great. Dual language speakers have neurological advantages (I swear I'm not making this up)!! However, in order to better support their English language development in the form of vocabulary, I LOVE using themed words in my writing center.
