Trick or Treat? Okay, here’s a treat, if you like free printables from Teaching Heart!!! Above is a fun cut and paste graph I created first for my second grade classroom and later used it with my first grade son. You can use this in your classroom for a fun Halloween activity or use it over the weekend at home to keep your kiddos happy and busy. They won’t even know they are learning important graphing skills. First they cut out the pictures. Next they glue the pictures on their graph. Finally they answer the questions about...

I saw a cute craft idea over at Ramblings of a Crazy Women… I love little crafts you make out of little feet tracings and little hand tracings. I always have my kids make reindeer’s on the holidays out of their cute feet and hands. So when I ran across this craft idea, I tweaked it and made it a little different and got my kiddos to make two cute witchies from two cute footsies. Ta-da! How to make your little Footsie Witchie… Trace your Kiddos Foot. Draw a hat to match (or for the older one’s, let them draw...

I found something good at Oriental Trading. They are called Spooky Cookies. They are so cute and they come with a good amount in each package. My kids think they are yummy and at only 7g of sugar per package, I am happy to give them the treat. Perfect Halloween snack for graphing (K-2) and sorting (Prek-1). Of course, I made a sorting sheet and graphing sheet I will share with you. So hop over to Oriental Trading and order those cookies for your class or or a Halloween party. Not only will the kids say yummy, they will be learning too! Print...

Halloween was so great this year. The weather was fantastic and my Darth & Minnie both had so much fun Trick or Treating. Then we ended the night at the neighbors by the fire pit. The kids watched a projected movie outside while the parents drank spiked apple cider. Great way to end a great night. It kept mommy away from the candy dish! When I got home from the neighborhood party I was a little sad. Halloween always marks the end of my favorite season… fall ! Then starts me thinking about all the things I want to do before...

Do you see our little pumpkin hanging on the tree? Just thought I would share a simple fun activity that will keep the kiddos busy. By now you may notice a theme with my kiddos activities… “Keep them busy so mom can sit back and watch…” Not sure if it a good parenting tip or a poor one. It works for my son because if he is busy he stays out of trouble (trouble meaning bothering his sister). Thus, mommy stays nice and happy and doesn’t loose her cool. Same goes with my daughter just on a different level. Of...
