OK, this is from the very end of September, so it was still hanging up at the beginning of October. My kids loved learning about Johnny Appleseed. The art project was awesome and it came from Teachers, Bits and Bobs. I loved step by step directions for drawing Johnny! We also made a circle map and I adore the pictures this little one added to her circle map:).
We practiced ghostly contractions small group and in word work. Contractions are such a hard concept for firsties and we need LOTS of practice:) I was so excited at I am just starting putting activities on TpT and this free activity had over 500 downloads!
My kids and I LOVED the Witches Brew activities by Mrs. Van Meter at Primary Possibilities. The Real and Make Believe words for the pocket chart activity were a hit! We even make the Witches Brew recipe at our Fall festival to make money for our class. The yummy bat wings (ruffles) and eyeballs (cheeseballs) were a hit! I wish I had a picture of our booth, but we were so BUSY!
Here is a team picture after working a full school day and then at the Fall Festival until 8:00pm. We were hot and exhausted, but the kids had a blast!
(I am heading to school today to snap a picture of the pumpkins on the door.)
The kids loved painting pumpkins. I adore how their personalities come out when you hand them a paintbrush and let them create. We painted pumpkins and after they dried the kids cut them out. We talked about "bubble cutting" around the pumpkin, just like Mrs. Van Meter did with Johnny Appleseed. ( I love this term:) I laminated them and they are hanging on the outside of our door and in the classroom.
I have linked up with Michele at Miss Nelsons Got the Camera. Head on over to share what you did in October. Its time to finally download the photos:)
