We are taking this Friday's Five for Friday to the spooky side.
Don't worry we are not very spooky.
Check out Kacey's Linky Party at Doodle Bugs Teaching.
Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!
I spy pumpkins.
So, if you love Pumpkin Spice Lattes or Pumpkin Patches, this is your time of year.
We are lucky enough to have a big pumpkin patch within walking distance of our school.
It is a fun, inexpensive field trip for the sweeties.
After the sweeties return to class, we can use our
Pumpkins: Facts and Opinions lesson to work in some pumpkin-sized content.
See, no spooks here.
The huge Halloween parade is a long-standing tradition for my school.
These photos are from a few years ago.
Can you tell I live in Texas?
Our phenomenal coaches loved their colleges (Longhorns & Aggies) and Halloween.
They literally sewed together jeans and shirts to make their
Gym Divided costume!
These coaches always made Halloween a day to remember for all the sweeties.
Dancing to the "Monster Mash", "One-Eyed Purple People Eater" and "Thriller"
were just part of the whole parade extravaganza.
Here I am hanging out with some of my favorite school peeps.
We were feeling witchy, not spooky!
Trick or treat?
I love treats.
We have another lesson to treat your sweeties with those oh-so-tricky spatial concepts.
Take a look at our
Trick or Treat Spatial Concepts in our TpT Store.
If you prefer a non-Halloween look at spatial concepts this month,
we have created the Pumpkin Patch Spatial Concepts activity.
Still no spook sighting!
At my last Professional Development, I found some books to add to our library.
I was familiar with author Vicki Cobb.
But I discovered some books I did not own by her.
Such as her The Science Play series.
This series includes:
I Get Wet (discover the shape of water),
I See Myself (discover how light bounces),
I Face the Wind (how you know air is real),
and I Fall Down (all about gravity).
My favorite find of the day is Summer Birds: The Butterflies of Maria Merian.
Maria was a little girl who refused to believe that insects were evil and came from the mud.
A wonderful biography of a young girl scientist.
Clip art is a definite treat for me.
Here are some of my most recent finds on TpT:
I adore Whimsy Clips.
So, I did not resist buying her Monthly Readers.
And to shower a little love on another Texas TpT seller,
I love the pinks, gold, greens and grays Megan mixed together in this set.
Not too spooky at all.
We hope you all have a fantastic Halloween!
