O, I love the dollar store all year long…  but during the Holidays you can find the best stuff for learning.  Here is a simple hands-on counting idea.  Grab a pack of small pumpkin containers and a pack of pumpkin erasers. On the outside of each pumpkin write a number.  The student must count out the number of pumpkin erasers and stick them in the pumpkin.  // // This makes a great math center for PRE-K to K.  Also fun to do at home to practice counting.   You can make the numbers in different formats.  You could also make...

Daubing for apples has been downloaded by over 7,000 people since I posted it less than a month ago.  Glad it is is being used!  Here is another similar sheet.   This is two Pumpkin cover-ups.  You can use a Bingo Dauber or you can cover it up with a pumpkin marker (dollar store Halloween erasers).  The first set is for K sight words and numbers.  The second set is for ‘op’ and ‘an’ family words.  Say a word or number and the students finds it one their card to cover it up!  So much fun reviewing!  Great...

One of my favorite classroom activities this time of the year is making Pumpkin Pie in a cup.  Students get a kick out of “cooking” in their classroom.   You will be surprised how many kiddos never tried pumpkin pie.  Many that have may not like it, but most kiddos like this recipe.  I always make all the kiddos make the recipe and at least try it.  If they do not like it, that is okay.  You will need per chef.  1 Pudding cup, 2 Tbls of Pumpkin Puree, crushed graham crackers or Teddy Grahams for dipping, spoon, cup large...

Here are two activities for grades K-2. The first is a SPIN THE WORD Halloween Game.  Students take turns spinning the spinner.  First person to spell Halloween wins. Here is a Spider Web tally mark math center.  You can place all the pieces in a zip loc baggie or the students can do the activity at their seat.  You could also make this a pocket chart center.  There is a center sheet for the students to complete after they finish the center. These activities are just two of the activities found on the Teaching Heart Fall/Halloween...

Love me some Bingo Daubers…  Here’s another activity that fits with a fall apple theme.  All you need is the activity sheet and a bingo dauber.  I programed this activity sheet with things my daughter needed to review.  I would call out an item on the chart and she would have to find it and daub it!  Of course she loved this and didn’t even realize she was reviewing some pre-k skills.  You can download the sheet I used with her here in PDF. In the classroom, you could use this sheet to review anything you are working...
