Five For Friday!

I have two words for this week. Full moon. I never really believed in the superstitions...until I became a teacher:). We also had a rainy day schedule and some cooler weather this week (which I'm very grateful for). Any-hoo...we did get a lot done this week and had some fun while we were at it! Here is my Five For Friday!

We finished up our apple unit this week! We started the week off by making fresh squeezed apple juice! This was something none of my students had tried before! I don't think they had previously made the connection that the apple juice they buy in the store actually comes from apples!

The kiddos also discovered The little red house, with no windows, no doors, and a star inside this week! A big thank you to Teacher to the Core for creating this cute story! We did some apple stamping so they could take their stars home and tell their parents about it!

Last week, we made homemade applesauce...this week we wrote about it!

October is officially here! I couldn't wait to get my favorite bulletin board up! We had a rainy day on Thursday...I decided to embrace the rain with an afternoon craft! 
 


LOVE LOVE LOVE our lil' pumpkin patch!

Last up, inflatable microphones! I'm sure you're wondering what we are using these for?! I've started using them as part of a Kagan structure-interview pair share. I thought I'd jazz it up a bit with these microphones. You can purchase these on Amazon for $6.00 for a set of 12! 

Stay tuned the next few weeks for all things pumpkins, bats, and everything October!

Happy Saturday!
