Where does the time go?

October has come and gone with hardly a post!  Where do people find the time?  With teaching all day and kids to run to all kinds of events in the afternoon, supper to fix and homework to help with--I rarely sit down at my computer.  Maybe things will slow down with thanksgiving approaching.  I'm ready for one "sleep late day".  Here are some of the fun things we did in our classroom in October.
Five Little Pumpkins was our poem during the week we studied "Number 5"

These are our fabulously vibrant pumpkins.  I had found a diecut I loved and we got our inspiration from it!

We made H-H-Haunted H-H-House glyphs for our "H" week which happened to bee the week before Halloween.  I couldn't have planned that better!

A class favorite every year is Spookly, The Square Pumpkin .  After we read it we made our own colorful pumpkin patch complete with a square pumpkin.  This is a great activity for me to review and assess shapes and colors.
