October Fun

Hi Teacher Friends!  How cute are these little bags?  My sister and I found these at Target's Dollar Spot the other day.  They are just perfect for holding the cards and other items for our Fall theme and Halloween theme centers.

 
We continued to look around in the Dollar Spot and then found these.
 
 
 
I realized we had been busy with our lessons and learning, we hadn't made any October projects.  So we made these little trick or treaters from Kaye Espinosa's TLC Beginning Lessons book.  We just love making TLC projects in kindergarten.   You can find Kaye's TLC books/downloads on TpT. 
 
 
Then we made this fun color word/scarecrow project from an idea shared by Kinder by Kim on her blog.  A big THANK YOU goes out to Kim for sharing this idea.  Here is a link to her blog:  http://kinderbykim.blogspot.com . My class loved this!  Once we finished, I would see them sitting at their tables reading the color words.  So smart. :)   I used a scarecrow from the online free resources of The Mailbox magazine for teachers.  If you subscribe to the magazine, you have free access to the online resources.  The kids did all the tracing, cutting, and coloring.  I helped with the envelope on the back.
 
 
There are so many fun, educational activities to complete with the kids this time of year.  There just never seems to be enough time to squeeze it all in.  Next week we are celebrating Red Ribbon Week at school and we are still working on our Fire Safety activities.
 
Have a great week at school everyone!  :)
