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:

We at "Sunday Morning" love a good book- and so does blogger Katie Fulton. Fulton created this Christmas Tree that's, well tree-mendously impressive! She admits to reading ONLY 266 of the 460 books. Quite a novel idea.
