I know you're probably still thinking about Halloween and all the fun activities there are still to do! I want to put a little plug in your ear. Last year on Veterans Day we wrote letters to the Veterans. It was such a neat experience. It made my students so thankful to live in the country we live in. If you would like your class to write letters here is the site:
I plan on doing it again this year! Veterans day is on Monday, November 12, 2012. How do you celebrate Veterans Day?

I'm trying to get into the Halloween spirit. I made a mini spooky adjective unit. I'm in the process of trying to get my kids outfits ready for Halloween. This year my son wants to be Frankenstein. He was so excited when he saw this clip art in this mini unit, because it has a Frankenstein. My aunt made this darling hat for him. I will post pictures when it's closer to Halloween.

I've been boo-ed by Granny Goes to School I think this will be a fun linky party. Thanks for thinking of me :)
Here is my Halloween Share list: First off have you seen these darling free printables if you want to boo a neighbor or maybe another class? I found this darling printable at :tiffcreativeoutlet.blogspot.com http://tiffcreativeoutlet.blogspot.com/search/label/Halloween I am going to start boo-ing classrooms at my school tomorrow. This is the cute sign I'm going to put on their door:
Then I'm going to attach this to a bag of candy. I made these instructions so if you want to grab a copy go for it: HERE
I can't take credit for this next idea. I teach part-time and the lady I job share with well she came up with this darling idea. She has the students make black cats and they use dum dums for the eyes. Then on the outside of the pumpkin they write a joke and then you pull the stem and the answer is inside. These were a big hit at parent teacher conferences tonight. All of the parents wanted to see their child's and read their joke. Too cute!!

Wow, I can't believe it is October already. My all time favorite month is October. I love the crisp leaves and the temperatures. Our mountains covered in red, yellow, and green is just beautiful. Here's a peek at my two little cuties in the fall leaves. We have been making skeletons in my classroom. Have you heard dem bones on You Tube? Of course you probably have. It's my students favorite. They love to do the actions too. I think they could listen to it all day. Here it is::
We made these cute crafts from crafts-for-all-seasons. The kids loved making them. Then we filled out this acrostic poem to go with it. I wish I had taken a picture of the finished product but you can get the idea. If you would like to snag a copy. I put it in google docs. I know the name is higher on the second one. I tried everything to fix it and it just wouldn't work for me. It was one of those nights. But once they're cut apart you can't even tell.
