Happy Happy Halloween! I really love Halloween and enjoy the fun side of the holiday. No spooky stuff for me.. please!

But, can we all say a quick AMEN that Halloween is on Friday this year! Praise the Lord!

Here is a special Halloween Five for Friday!

We started this crazy holiday week with a big Harvest Festival at our school. I wish I had more pictures- it included games, trunk or treat, bouncy houses, good food and more. It was a fun night for all of our students. I helped with the Costume Contest and had a great time.

We made these last minute Silly Jacks this week. They turned out cute and make me smile!

Last week I shared our ghost directed drawings but forgot to take a picture of the finished product. These were part of our weekly afternoon centers. We did the pencil drawing together {before centers} and they outlined and painted by themselves.

The ones that have the bow above the mouth crack me up.. it looks like a nose.

I love kid artwork!

Today we are going to the local banks to trick or treat this morning. And, I have parents coming in to give a class Halloween party this afternoon. I must be going crazy.. but sometimes between Trick or Treating and the Halloween Party we are going to read and watch Room on the Broom and eat orange ice cream. What will a little more sugar hurt?!? Right??

I do plan on squeezing in some good vocabulary work from Cheryl’s Room on the Broom Book Companion Unit.

You can buy the book and DVD from Amazon.

My room is going to look so bare when all these fun decorations come down this afternoon. Move on out pumpkins, ghosts and candy corn. It’s time for some turkey fun!

This week has been really low-key and not much to report! For the first time in three weeks we actually went to school all five WHOLE days! Not that I EVER EVER EVER complain about a day off.. but anytime we have 1/2 days the whole week seems off to me.

We are continuing to enjoy Halloween and still have more fun and exciting stuff for  next week. Next week will sure to be busy with a big Harvest Festival and Halloween. Nothing says sugar high more than a week full of candy!

We worked on a SUPER SIMPLE ghost directed drawing this week. We did the pencil part on Monday as a whole group and then one of my weekly afternoon center rotations was to finish the ghost. It worked perfectly not having all my kids painting at one time. Just a few! We still need to finish them up and I am going to mount them on construction paper before I hang them up. I will grab a picture and share the finished product probably next week.

One of our math centers this week are these fill in the missing number cards. These are from my Halloween Centers Unit.

This math center was thrown together at the last minute because we need all the extra practice we can get for math facts.

Another math center we did this week were these Counting by 10's pumpkins. So Cute! They put the cards in order in the pocket chart. It was perfect practice since it goes from 10-300. I had them do a recording sheet when they finished too.

These are from my Happy Halloween Centers.

We started buddy reading this week too during small group time. These kiddos rocked it. We talked and set up a bunch of "rules" before we started but it went off without any problems. They were reading short u practice sentences from my Short Vowel Unit.
