Witches and Scarecrows and Pumpkins Oh MY!

We are having a great week so far. We have been very busy reading our favorite Halloween books. Today we read "Room on The Broom" and did a beginning, middle, and end activity. My kiddo's are getting the hang of retelling with pictures and some words. Then we made this cute little craft I found on Facebook. They turned out so cute don't you think?
We also made this cute scarecrow glyph from Smedley's Smorgasboard of Kindergarten! They turned out so cute. The kiddos loved them.
Last but not least the kiddos were most excited today that we had sprouts. You should have seen their little faces when they came in and saw them. They were so excited. Everyone who came into the room had to be shown how great the pumpkin sprouts were doing.

Reading Fun!

Here is my latest creation. Its a roll, read, and write literacy center. I know my kiddos will love it. I plan to use it in my writing center during the first week of November. Look for First-Second grade to follow soon.

Its been awhile and a freebie

Well friends its been awhile since I have posted to this blog. I promise to get better. This last year has proved to be very difficult both personally and professionally. This past summer I had my gall bladder removed it was supposed to be a very simple surgery. NOT!I ended up with not one, not two, but three surgeries with in a 48 time period. That does not even include the surgery I had to have 8 weeks later to have a the stint removed.OH MY I was a mess all summer. After a week in the hospital I was able to return home. It has taken some time to recover and actually start to feel like myself. But now I do and I can continue what I started. Okay enough about that yucky time! Can I just say I love teaching Kindergarten. Where else can you go to work each day and be told how great you are. Its a daily ego bust. My class is awesome this year. They are learning just about as much as their dear old teacher. This has been the year of new adventures at our school. We went from a regular time schedule to a blocked time schedule. Throw in PLCs and eIRLA and just plain old school life.....WOW I am just pooped...lol. So to get this blog back up and running I am giving away a freebie. Here is a cute color by sound pack to use next week for Halloween. Enjoy!
