Halloween is almost here goblins and ghosts, oh the fear! Pumpkins, black cats and witches too, Bobbing for apples and witches brew. So jump for joy and sound the horn, relax and have some candy corn! – Author unknown One of my favorite things about Fall is Candy Corn… I love them. They are pretty, cute, and not to mention yummy. They are so cute that you can find crafts, lessons, recipes, and printables all dealing with Candy Corns. Now, if only they were healthy like carrots. I thought I would share some of my favorite...

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...

So I am on the other side of this now! Instead of the teacher giving the timed computation drills, I am the parent helping the child get ready for the timed drills. It was funny the other day I ran into a parent from my sons class who was complaining about the skill drills and how she didn’t even have immediate recognition of the math facts with sums to 18. She said something like, “Why do they need to learn their facts when we use computers for everything now?” I really did not say much and just asked her if she wanted...

I enjoy reading my kids books that promote good character traits. Last year I shared Have You Filled a Bucket Today? with my son’s teacher and it became a hit in his school. This year his school is focusing on, The 7 Habits of Happy Kids. After hearing about these books from my sons principal, I could hardly wait to get my hands on these books. I was pleasantly surprised after reading this book, Just the Way I AM. It focuses on one of the seven habits, Being Proactive, “You’re in Charge.” In this story, The character...

Yesterday we were trimming trees and we found some red leaves… o, my! Fall is coming. I love Fall, it is my favorite season. I just wish winter did not follow fall. If we could skip winter all together, that would be fabulous in my book. Back to fall; I love all the fun activities at the local farms (Trax, Simmons, Triple B), I love the craft fairs(Covered Bridge, Washington County Holiday Fair), I love mums, I love Halloween, and I love the cool feeling in the air… I could go on and on about all the great things fall has to...

I thought it would be a great idea to revisit traveling with kids, since I am getting ready to spend about 30 hours in the car… Don’t worry, I am an old pro! Thought I would take a moment to share some great links. I have big plans to share my traveling with kids tips this summer. I am working on a post that shares some great tips. Until then, these links should help a bit. Keep checking for my tips and happy traveling… One of my favorite gal pals (Ms. Amy) shared Geocaching, a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout...
