CEL to Ponder:
CEC2 Learning routines
Learning routines for discussion and collaborative work are present and result in effective discourse. Students independently use the routines during the lesson. Students are held accountable for completing their work and for learning. Students support the learning of others.
A Little Humor:

-My friends told me to stop telling Thanksgiving jokes, but I couldn’t quit cold turkey.
-How are Thanksgiving and Halloween alike? They both have gobble-ins.
-What should you wear to Thanksgiving dinner? A har-vest.
-When does Christmas come before Thanksgiving? In the dictionary.
-Why did the cranberries turn red? They saw the turkey dressing!
-Chuck Norris does not eat turkey on Thanksgiving; he eats the Pterodacrtl instead.

The Proud Rose-
Once upon a time, in a desert far away, there was a rose who was so proud of her beautiful looks. Her only complaint was that she was growing next to an ugly cactus.

Every day, the beautiful rose would insult and mock the cactus about his looks, all while the cactus remained quiet. All the other plants nearby tried to make the rose see sense, but she was too swayed by her own looks.

One scorching summer, the desert became dry, and there was no water left for the plants. The rose quickly began to wilt. Her beautiful petals dried up, losing their lush color.

Looking to the cactus, she saw a sparrow dip his beak into the cactus to drink some water. Though ashamed, the rose asked the cactus if she could have some water. The kind cactus readily agreed, helping them both through the tough summer as friends.
The Moral: Never Judge Someone by their looks.
