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...

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...

When doing a unit on pumpkins it is fun to discuss how they grow. In the pocket chart you see sentence strips with  the order that a pumpkin will grow. Watch the pumpkin grow. Plant the seeds. A vine begins to grow. Green leaves form on the vine. Pumpkin flowers grow on the vine. A little pumpkin starts to grow. Time to pick the pumpkin. Now I can make a jack-o-lantern. You could mix these up and have students sequence them as a center activity. You could print a set of these sentence for the students and have them illustrate each sentence and/or...

OMG, it is September!!!  Where the heck did summer go?  It went way too fast…  but with that said, I LOVE FALL!!!  It’s my favorite season.  So many fun activities one can do in the classroom or at home.  Plus the colors outside and the light nip in the air is wonderful.  Can’t forget all thing pumpkin; coffee, pie, dip, cookies…  NEED I SAY MORE?  Only bad thing about Fall is that Winter follows.  I really dislike winter… Any-who, this post is about the fall treats on Teaching Heart which will be...

var addthis_pub="patcollgallagher"; No matter how high I put that bowl of candy…  I can still hear it calling my name.  One more day and my kids will pick out 12 pieces and the rest will go to work with Daddy!  Not only does it call my name…  It knows the name of my kids.  Thus, my kids are sneaking candy and asking for it non-stop!  This article will help you realize that candy is no good… It tells us the facts: -The average child gains 2.2 pounds of weight all because of the candy!!! ...

Reposting!  It is October!  I love October… It is usually the perfect month! Not too cold yet in the Burgh and it is just usually pretty with the mums (my favorite flower) and the orange pumpkins against the blue sky. The cool air rocks… still haven’t put on my winter shoes yet or a coat. Hoping I can wear my sandals till November. I am officially ready for fall. I put out the Halloween/Fall decorations. My kids are at that perfect age, they go crazy over the decorations. I can hardly wait to decorate for Christmas....
