Thanksgiving Fun and a Treat or Treat Sale!

I can't resist... I have to share this about my Kinder, Olivia!  She loves to read and I was trying not to laugh out loud when I looked up only to see this image in the corner of my classroom after school yesterday.  Aww... my little reader!  My students are doing character pumpkins again this year and Olivia fell in love with one of them!  This is definitely one I'll be framing!  Notice the headphones for her pumpkin pal..haha!

I can't believe October is almost over and Thanksgiving is right around the corner! If you are like me you are already planning for Christmas!  I never can wait to put out the holiday math games in my centers and I already have some of my Thanksgiving games in their math tubs..HA!

If you are still looking for last minute pumpkin items or Thanksgiving Math and Literacy ideas, stop by my store for 20% all my units and clip art.  Sale ends Sunday, October 28th!

My Pumpkin Unit has fun activities to go with the Spookley the Square Pumpkin book.  The students make pumpkin vines to tell about Characters, setting, problem, and solution with this book!

Fall Leaves and Max and Ruby freebie

I have to say this is my favorite time of year, but unfortunately we don't get the pretty fall colors that some of you may get.  This is what it looks like at our school in October....

I still continue to bring the seasons to my students with pictures and activities.  I am teaching my unit "Why Do Leaves Change?" and the students are enjoying collecting some of the leaves around the campus, plus they get to read about the ones in other areas .  I have recently upgraded this unit so if you have already purchased it, you can go back and download it again for the new activities.

I love this book because it makes photosynthesis easy for my students to understand.  They filled out their observation booklet and made a tree glyph to go with it.

We are also using Max and Ruby because it was our story from the Reading Street this week.  We learned about how to make predictions, and identifying characters, setting, and main idea of a story.  Here is an activity we did with this Max and Ruby book.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!!
