We have a very short week with school on Monday and Tuesday. The remainder of the week is devoted to the Thanksgiving holiday.
For those who follow our blog outside the United States, visit this excellent History.com post about the history of Thanksgiving. And, for those of you who have not had a refresher course on this holiday, you might find yourself learning some new facts to share around the Thanksgiving table later this week. For those who think they know everything, test your turkey knowledge with this quiz.
If you find your family members are bored and in need of something to do, show them our blogs. I added a new feature (the revolving globe to the right) that shows your location on the map as well as visitors from around the world.
And, to really spice up the family gathering, take your family on the BLOG SCAVENGER HUNT. This month we are sharing silly stories about silly things we have done in our lives. Everyone is a winner in this contest. Students will be entered in the Reading Counts drawing just for participating. Other prizes will be offered too.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Drive safely, eat well and savor the special moments.
