I've Been BOOED!

Hi Friends!
I've been BOOED by my sweet friend, Tammy, over at Forever in First.  She
was one of my first followers and I just love her blog.  Please take the time to visit
her and I PROMISE you that you won't be disappointed.
Here are some wonderful books and activities for October.
If you don't have this book, you are missing out!  It's a great read aloud for all
grades.  My student teacher read this to my first graders and then had them predict how many seeds
were in our pumpkin.  Next, she carved the pumpkin and had the kids put the seeds in groups of ten.
The kids counted 491 seeds in all! 
Finally, she roasted the pumpkin seeds and we ate them for our snack!

The kids made groups of ten seeds and put them on paper plates to
make them easier to count.

This is my favorite book for teaching kids how to use speech bubbles.
After reading the book, the kids shared what they are going to be for Halloween.
Then, each of the kids made a page for a class big book called  What Will You Be for Halloween?
Here's a couple of pages from our book.

I just bought this book called Little Goblins Ten by Pamela Jane.
  It can be read to the tune of Over in the Meadow. There's some great vocabulary in this book!
The pictures are fabulous, too!!  The illustrator is Jane Manning. 


This is another new book I just purchased.  It's a National Geographic Kids book 
 by Jill Esbaum.  It's filled with fun facts and beautiful photographs. 
THANKS to Tammy for the BOO!
