Good Morning :)
It’s been a little while since I got to join in on the “Five for Friday” fun, so I figured Saturday was as good a day as any!
And here we go…
1) We’re knee deep in all things fall and Halloween at school.
We’ve begun our “Spider Parts of Speech”
I switched this little crafitvity up from how I’ve done it in year’s past. Previously, students came up with 8 adjectives the described them and put them on their spider legs. I decided this year to focus on the 3 major parts of speech instead.
First, I had students research spiders in the computer lab. We used their graphic organizers to help find different parts of speech associated with spiders. Then, I showed a short video on spiders and we brainstormed some more verbs, adjectives, and nouns. To cap it off, I read a Scholastic book on spiders to them. They sat on the carpet with their clipboards and wrote down any word I read aloud that was their assigned parts of speech.
I can’t believe I forget to get a picture of the finished spiders. I haven’t hung them up yet, but I will post a picture when I do!

2) We’re pretty knee-deep in Halloween at our house too.
-Halloween Main Idea Passages
And I mean to “reshare” a few oldies but goodies…I guess now would be a good time!
- Halloween Bump (3 versions)
Students read the clue cards and decide which costumed kid is being described…
There are two different sets of clue cards. One for the primary grades (K/1)
and one for the bigger kids (2/3)
It also comes with recording and extension sheets
This is a unit I know my kids are just gonna eat up!

5) With all this Halloween stuff I’ve been pretty busy, but I ‘ve still found some time to relax with the hubs, our furballs, and some junk food.
Love hangin’ in the hammock with this girl, a blanket, a good book, and a fall candle. It’s heaven.
And I found a new obsession last night…
That would be gelato. Caramel Cookie Crunch gelato, to be exact. Divine. I debated having it for breakfast this morning. Seriously.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I’m excited to have nothing on my calendar for the day. It’s the first time in a long time, so I’m set on enjoying it!
