A few days ago – I posted about these fun Candy Corn Guys over on the Blog Hoppin’ blog. They are also a free download in my TpT store.


These are displayed on our main hall bulletin board. My class was assigned the month of October- and they are smiling at you when you walk in the front door of our building.

I have definitely put the MANY pocket charts to use this week in my room. I have been pulling students 1 or 2 at a time for extra sight word practice and I have needed lots of activities to keep the others busy.

Math facts * Months & Days * Short Vowel Sentences Unscrambling * Crayon Counting by 5’s *Apple Counting by 5’s

I took a personal day on Thursday and went to the largest flea market in our state. I’ve been going for about 15 years. It’s a fun day. It was crowed {as usual} and really hot this year. But, always fun!

While I was out on Thursday, I left this monster project with the little ones. They turned out pretty funny!

I don’t have anything exciting for #5.. other than it’s Friday. And, we have a 1/2 day. I would totally fall in love with a fall break .. but unfortunately I will settle for just an afternoon off. I think I might just take a nap.

And for no reason.. here is a little Biscuit cuteness! I simply ♥ her!
