A Halloween Freebie

2 more days until Halloween. Just wondering if you have given any thought as to what Friday will be like? I have thought about this. A lot. And I realized that I have essentially 2 choices.
1. Ignore the fact that the kids will be completely wired and keep them so busy all day that they won't have a minute to think straight. OR 2. Give in to the candy haze and consider the day an absolute write off. I have not decided which one I will choose, but so far this week I am leaning towards #2 cause kids the day after Halloween - that's just too powerful a force to fight against PLUS it's a Friday. My kids have a hard time getting stuff done on a regular Friday, imagine the Friday after Halloween.

I will keep you posted. In the meantime, I got a word search for ya! Just click on it to download.
Got this great pumpkin on the weekend, I call him Bob, that's a shocker! My kids LOVE him.

Don't forget, you've got 1 more day to enter my Fall Clip Art Giveaway!
Hope you're having a great week!

A Fall Clip Art Giveaway 2 Lucky Winners!

Hi there - I have a Clip Art addiction! I consider it to be fairly harmless, so I just let my love for cute Clip Art take over my life most of the time. My good friend Marilou draws custom stuff for me whenever I need it. She's a gem! I am so lucky cause I never give her any warning, I usually just run into her classroom, chart paper and scented markers flying behind me, tell her what I need, run back to my class and wait. She always delivers and I end up with beautiful anchor charts, thanks to her. Here is one of my favourites she drew for me.
And now, Marilou is sharing her talent with everyone, so she's not just mine anymore. She has opened a TPT and an Etsy store and I would LOVE for you to win some of her clip art. She is giving away her Halloween and Thanksgiving bundles to 2 lucky winners as well as a custom teacher illustration, you can check out the one she did of me below.


Just use the Rafflecopter below to enter the Clip Art Giveaway.

Good luck! If you have time to stop by Marilou's Etsy shop, she is offering 10% off now til Monday, just use the code 10GROOVY.

Pumpkin Math Freebie and Some Halloween Read Alouds

I'm officially in the Halloween swing of things and there are so many great books for this time of year, I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you. They are all great reads and year after year, no matter the group I have, they always love them.




There are links for all of them, so you just have to click on each one for more info. 

If you're looking for a little Halloween Math Practice, I've got just the thing. You can click on any of the pages to download.



Hope that makes your life a little easier. Terry Fox Day has come and gone, but he'll always be my hero. My kids were lucky enough to win the Terry Fox banner this year for our class donations. It is an honour to hang this in my classroom.

Have a great week. I'll be back tomorrow with a great Clip Art Giveaway!
