It’s been a busy week and past weekend! I can’t believe October is almost over! I didn’t get to all the things I wanted to…so owls, bats and spiders will be pushed to November. But here are a few things we’ve done this week and the previous week.
Pumpkin Life Cycle Writing
We created torn paper pumpkins and then wrote about how a pumpkin seed grows into a pumpkin. The students had a ball tearing paper for their pumpkins.

The following ideas come right from Mrs. Carroll at The First Grade Parade. Thanks for the inspiration!
Today we described the outside of our pumpkin and completed descriptive sentences. Tomorrow we will cut open our class pumpkin and describe the inside.

Yesterday we read I Where’s My Mummy and completed our mummy activity! Mrs. Carroll again!
Last week during Work on Writing the students completed a Pumpkin Fact paper.

Math Stations this week:
Completing Hallo-weeny Number Order
These students are completing Start With Get To. This really helps with counting from any number.
These students are completing Hallo-Weeny Number Order on the Promethean board.
Spider Spider on the Promethean board.
Shake Those Beans for Ten
Completing our Hop Along Halloween Frog skip counting (by 5s) activity.
Two weeks ago our Reading Street story was Get the Egg and last week was The Animal Park. Here are the writing sheets my students had to complete during work on writing.
Told you it was a long post. I hope you can find things you can use…I have tons more freebies so I’ll return on Thursday. Have a great day tomorrow!
