Trick and Treat for Teachers

Are you ready for a Trick and Treat? 

I have teamed up with my Freebielicious friends to share some teaching tricks and special free treats for you!  

Teaching Trick/ Tip

Do your students ever forget to bring their backpacks to school? Sometimes we have many papers to send home and a student might not have a backpack on that day. It’s very difficult for little kids to carry papers during dismissal. Students will drop their papers on the floor a few times while walking down the hallway. A very simple trick is to keep a box of those large plastic baggies in the classroom. You will simply place the student’s papers and books in the baggie. Don’t forget to add a label with the student’s name, in case he drops that too 🙂

Teacher Treat (Freebie)

Here’s a free Halloween reader. It will help take the students’ fears away about certain little personalities that are part of Halloween stories, pictures, themes, etc.

Short Vowels Clip Art with CVC Word Patterns

I have been a little busy with a clip art request from some sweet blogging friends. We were in need of graphics for short vowels. I came up with a list of words that follow a CVC pattern. Now, we do not have to spend hours online searching for short vowels clip art AND having to credit so many sources in a single product. I hope that these work for your phonics creations. I am working on another set. I will post it as soon as I finish. These graphics are available in individual packets and in a bundle. I added a freebie at the bottom of this post. If you like it, make sure to download it:)

Here is a freebie for you. Just right click and save it to your computer 🙂

Fall Time!

Halloween decorations were in stores way before the school supplies were up.  Well, today is finally the first day of Fall. So, how about some thematic activities for this time of the year?
1. Roll, Say, Keep!
 I made this Halloween Roll, Say, Keep game to help my son practice identifying numbers 1-20. He is loving dice games right now and this activity is just perfect for him.

2. Five Little Pumpkins
I also made a poster for the Five Little Pumpkins. This song provides the perfect opportunity to teach about ordinal numbers. Your students can act out this fun song too. Simply have them decorate a paper pumpkin and attach yarn long enough to have it hang around the student’s neck.  Then, choose five student pumpkins at a time to act out the song while the rest of the class chants the words.
