My two best friends (over 20 years together! Eek!) took my two girls to the beach. My husband stayed at home to work. Boo! We had a blast. We spent 4 days in Myrtle Beach and LOVED it.
All but this one...she is not a fan of waves, sand, salt and all that stuff! See the tears?
They are there if you look close!
When I came home the temperatures cooled off enough to put me in the mood to decorate the mantel for Halloween/ Fall. It is busy and a bit over the top, but that is how I roll!
Normally, I solely decorate for fall, but I found the cute "spooky" sign and "Happy Halloween" banner in the dollar section at Target. Of course, they weren't really a dollar! The little white blocks will be ghosts... I just have to paint on the little faces. I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest from Etsy.
We will be making a trip to the apple orchards in a a few weeks and with Johnny Appleseed's birthday coming up, I thought I would share some of my apple favorites!
I wrote this beginning graphing unit and actually used it in my third grade classroom a few years ago. Now, it would probably work best in second. Students create a glyph and then read the glyph. Students use the glyph to create a bar graph. We also did an apple taste test and created a pictograph as well.
Please forgive the terrible anchor charts. This is real life...before blogging!
You can download the lesson and the glyph here for FREE!
I also just finished my Johnny Appleseed Interactive Notebook Activities. I tried to cover as many standards as possible including reading, writing, science and math!
I really love how it turned out. I shared an exclusive freebie for my Facebook Friends. Hop on over to my Facebook page to get your exclusive freebie!
