Celebrate Some Special Days in November

One of my favorite places to visit is the Calendar Activities section of Read Write Think. As I was browsing through there today I noticed a few dates I thought you might want to take a minute or two in class and have some fun with the topics. Maybe read a book, visit a website, do a little activity?

Ashlyn & Mickey

Friday, November 18: MICKEY MOUSE appeared in his first animated feature. Everyone knows  I am a huge Disney fan. In fact, it is a secret.. but  I recently wrote some fan letters to some Disney characters on behalf of my daughter. I am patiently waiting for her autographed pics of Ariel and Flynn Rider to appear as a Christmas gift! How fun is that? I’ll let you know how it goes.

You and your students can write letters to Disney characters and Disney will send you or your students autographed pics. How cool is that? So here are the addresses. Make letter writing magical this week. Make sure to take some photos to capture the memories when your students open their special packages from Disney! I would love to see their faces!

Disney World Characters:
Walt Disney World Communications
P.O. Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-0040

Disney Land Characters:
Walt Disney Company
Attn: Fan Mail Department
500 South Buena Vista Street

See Couponing to Disney for more details. I got this idea from Pinterest. So worth the time to PIN!

November 20: Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein was published in 1974
Have a little Poetry Tea to celebrate!

November 21: World Hello Day

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!

“It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
