Finally Fall Blog Hop and Giveaway!

So it is finally fall around here. I find myself looking for every crunchy leaf available and going way out of my way to step on it. Is there anything more satisfying than the sound of a crunchy leaf? It is such a great time of year to get my Owlets outside collecting leaves and acorns to use in math or to use to help them achieve mastery over vocabulary and sight words. I hope you have acorns in your neck of the woods!

Picking pumpkins is so much fun!

My students enjoyed reading a little book to find out if they were an apple or not a couple weeks ago. This week we will read THIS book to see if perhaps we are pumpkins instead.
You Might be a Pumpkin!

  1. I love the way you used something already learned like the apple book to teach something new, like the pumpkin book! Cute! We don't have acorns in my area of California, but I love the idea of using them as math manipulatives!!

  6. What a cute idea to use acorns as manipulatives in math. We have TONS here in AL. We usually use erasers, smal plastic toys, etc. What a fun way to bring the outside in. Thanks for such cute ideas!

    Happy Fall!
