Fall Fun

Sunday, October 20, 2013
Fall Festivities are always fun!  The leaves are changing, Apple Cider, Pumpkins, Costumes and so much more.  Living in the Northeast this season really is Mother Nature at her best.  

One of my very first products, Autumn Centers, has been given a little face lift and has been added to.  Now this resource has several activities to do during the those festive times.  Both last year and this year, I had 1 boy that could not celebrate any holidays.  But I still wanted him to enjoy the season.  So this year, I will be inviting all the students on our grade that cannot participate in  the school Halloween Parade into my classroom for a day of AUTUMN FUN!  My class will attend part of the parade with the class para-professionals and then come back to enjoy the fun with us.   They saw me printing the items in school and then I had them laminated and I heard a few kids whisper and say, "I hope we do those games."

This year we will be doing 
Pumpkin Poetry, Pumpkin Writing, Pumpkin Painting and drawing.

 Pumpkin Weighing, Pumpkin Circumference and then Pumpkin Counting fun! 

Created new for this year are several activities about sequencing and How a Pumpkin Grows.  
These hands on, differentiated activities show the different stages a seed goes through to become a pumpkin, ready in time for Fall Fun!

For those ready to celebrate and have a SPOOKY TIME during the month of October, here is a math activity using many different fun ten frame activities.

Fun week of learning and a lil freebie too!

Monday, October 7, 2013
This week in math, it's all about odd and even numbers with the beginning of expanded and standard form.  Thanks to Deana at Primary Punch for this awesome set with these great visuals.  One of my students said he liked the way the numbers had feet and eyes!  (He now refers to the chart all the time.)  I might add eyes and feet to everything just for him to look at it.  :)

The students are working on landforms.  This week we are focusing on oceans and continents.  The students are loving the teaser that I gave them today using Linda Kamp's unit Continents, Oceans and Landforms
GRAB these in the  EDUCENTS DEAL of 24 awesome products.  
This deal ends TOMORROW, Tuesday October 8.... So you don't have time to wait and decided.  

Having a mixed class I need to be prepared and have activities for all the grades.  So one of my first graders is having problems with his letters.  So I made this little activity just for him and he has it in he lunchbox and plays at lunch.  Click the picture to GRAB THIS FREEBIE

The rest of my first graders are having fun with these sight word mats.   

Some of them are up to fixing the words to make them correct. 

Friendship with a Frog and Toad

Saturday, October 5, 2013
This week was all about friends, how we are the same and how we are different.  One story that we read was a personal childhood favorite Frog and Toad are Friends.  This book makes everything about being friends so sweet.  My class this year needs a lot of reminders about friends.  They have been together as a class for a few years and they bicker and get crazy.  (A class of 12 special ed boys will do that!)  So we talked about how people who are different can be friends and have fun times together, just like Frog and Toad.  The message seemed to have worked, let's see what happens next week. 

Being that my class is full of boys, how can we make this message of friendship stick?  I incorporated the LMN Tree's activity about Frog and Toads.  So we did a Venn Diagram about these two awesome amphibians.  This activity is great because we could use it now and then again in the spring when I attempt to grow frogs.   
 If you want to see more about the creator of this unit hop over to the LMN Tree 

This bundle is part of the Educents curriculum bundle that is on sale for a limited time.
