Getting Ready for October

Holy. Cannoli. WHAT. A. YEAR so far. I can't even believe it's almost October soon!!

October is just a whirl wind!! It's super crazy, in the teacher world and the mom world. I'm not sure which direction I'm going anymore - does anyone else feel that way??

Here are some things I have done for past Octobers.... they range from Community helpers, to bats and spiders and owls to pumpkins - I wish October was longer! 

I usually start the month with....


 I love when my husband used to come and give presentations. 



 THEN, we can't forget Bats,


and I LOVE Spiders, 


and Owls!  
(You can see some older posts on each of those by click on those links...)

I love using Reading A-Z or ReadWorks.org for nonfiction passages. And also PebbleGo!  The art is from Art for Kids Hub on Youtube - one of my go-tos for directed drawings!





And of course - owl week wouldn't be complete with dissecting owl pellets!! So. Much. Fun!!





I also love to read the book, Monster Trouble, and did a prediction activity to go with it. I'm really trying to get them to USE THE TEXT to help them answer questions... WHY oh why is it so hard to do?

We also take some time to review 2-digit numbers, since we're adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers now... it's always good to review!

 And of course, we can't forget Pumpkin week! So many Pumpkin activities!! You can see previous years' activities in THIS post.

We'll be working a LOT in our Pumpkin Book...












And for our actual Pumpkin Day, we'll be doing a few of these activities...
