Fall is here! I love October because it means pumpkins, bats, monsters and slightly cooler weather! Here are a couple things that we are doing in class-

Pumpkin Letter Recognition- students pick a letter or sound card and color the letter on their sheet.

Calendar Math Monsters- this year I decided I didn't want to use the calendar math numbers that come out of our Everyday Counts kit, so I made cute monster cards. I love these cards because we can use them to discuss different patterns (purple/orange/green, girl/boy/boy, 1 eye/2 eyes/3 eyes). The graphics are by KPM Doodles.

**Update** Oops! I accidentally uploaded a version that was missing 25 & 26. The updated link should have the corrected version. Sorry! =)

Pumpkin Happy- students color and draw faces on the pumpkins so they match the words. We practice reading together while pointing to the words. When we're done, students put these books in their independent reading bags.
