Pipe Cleaner Spiders

It’s that time of year…  when teachers and homeroom moms frantically look for some fun ideas to use on Halloween with their little monsters. Here’s an easy craft.  Beaded Pipe Cleaner Spiders. You need four black pipe cleaners and 24 beads of an any color. For each spider, gather four pipe cleaners in a bunch. Bend the bunch in half and then tightly twist the section near the fold several times to shape a slender spider body. Separate the pipe cleaner ends to create the spider’s legs. Slide a couple of beads...

chocolate pumpkin cups

Hey everyone.  It’s been a bit since my last post.  I am trying to adjust to back to school.  I am not teaching Pre-K this year and have decided to go back into the classroom as a Substitute this year.  Subbing has it perks…  most importantly I make my schedule so I can still plug away at Teaching Heart and being a volunteer in my Children’s schools.  It also has it’s disadvantages!  #1 being I hate doing things other people’s way.  Meaning following another teachers style and classroom management. ...

pumpkin cloud dough activities

I made cloud dough for the first time…  I made it to stick inside of a baby food container to make the container look like Spookly the Square Pumpkin.  I wanted to find something fun to stick inside the container to make Spookly orange.  I originally was going to make this orange pumpkin slime found by clicking here.  Then I decided to make a more sandy dough thinking it would be less messy.  With four and five year old, cloud dough seems just as messy – my black pants were orange by the end of the day…  but we had...

Leaf Theme in Preschool

It was all about the leaf today!!!  One of my favorite things about Fall is all the colors of the leaves!  Started off our leaf day in Pre-K with two of my favorite Leaf stories… Of course…  The Little Old Lady Who Swallowed some Leaves - Click here for some great ideas to match this story! And The Leaves are Falling One By One which I have the scholastic CD which goes with the book and the kids love it! If you can get your hands on some pretend leaves at the dollar store you can do all sorts of things with those.  They...

Pumpkin Head Discovery Bottles - Teaching Heart

We had the best time making these pumpkin head discovery bottles. I saw the idea first on Teach Preschool (click t o view her post)!  I modified it a bit and it was a hit!  Like in Teach Preschool post we started the lesson with reading the story Pumpkin Heads by Wendell Minor.  We then discussed the life cycle of a pumpkin using the visuals in the Teaching Heart Pumpkin Pack.  We started by discussing what was inside a pumpkin.  We carved a small pumpkin and looked inside.  I was surprised how many kids did not want to feel the...

Tree snacks to make

A is for Apple!  Here is a fun snack that you can have your students make…  Just supply 2 crackers, 2 pretzel sticks, six Fall themed M&M’s and some green icing. Go along well with an Apple Theme! I plan to supply the pieces in a baggie and have the students put their own trees together! Cute snack and yummy too!  You can even add some bears to hang out around the tree.  They have the apple Teddy Grahams by Honey Maid out now that would go well with the theme…  Or any Teddy Grahams will do! For more apple ideas...

free fall graphing dice printable

Yesterday I shared a free printable (click here to see)  and guess what???  I am back with yet another free printable!!! My daughter (second grade) is working on graph and chart reading in second grade.  She needs lots of extra practice with any math skill.  Thus I made this fun dice activity.  All you have to do it print pages 3 and 4 of the document.  Print page 3 on cardstock and fold to form the dice.  Students roll the dice ten times.  They tally their results onto a chart and go on to graph their results.  A fun way to review...

I am always looking for different ways to practice spelling words!  This activity I created could be used with spelling words, sight words, or vocabulary words.  You print the pages and write the words you want on the apples.  Students take an apple out of the bucket one at a time and write the word on the apple next to the given number.  This could be used as a center activity as well! This is free to download below… For more free Fall Ideas and Printables – Click here! Click to download bobbing for apple activity
