Where's My Mummy?

 
With Halloween on its way, I decided to read my favorite Halloween book to my Kinders Where's My Mummy? My class LOVED this book. I have had to read it to them 3 times since Monday, lol. First we read the book and then made our text to self-connections by drawing a picture of Baby Mummy when he was scared in the story and then of a picture of what we do when we are scared. They turned out so cute.

 
 
 
After finishing the text to self-connection writing activity we made our very own mummy. At first they looked like marshmallow men so I had a brainstorm and we cut up white paper towels and glued them to the mummy's. They turned out so cute and the children were so proud of them.
 
 
 
My class is so excited about our Halloween party tomorrow. I will post pictures of it tomorrow afternoon. Happy Halloween everyone!

Apples!

Hello everyone! I recently did a mini apple unit with my Kinders when we studied the letter A. First, we had an apple tasting activity. I brought in yellow, green and red apples for the students to taste. I had them pick their favorite apple and color a paper apple the corresponding color. Our graph looked like this:

 
After we finished our graph, I had the students fill out this chart to record our data.
 
 
The next day we made these adorable paper plate apples. The students had such a fun time doing this and it made such an awesome hallway display.
 
 
I got the chart idea from the fabulous Deanna Jump. Happy Fall Yall!

October Currently

Hello everyone! Long time no blog, huh? I have been so super busy since football season started. I am the director of my area football cheerleading league and also a coach for one of the three squads. August and September were super busy months for me due to the new school year starting and cheerleading season. Our last ballgame was today so I will now be able to be a good little blogger again, lol.

I have linked up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the October currently.

 
 
 
Thanks for checking out my October Currently. Please come back soon and visit my blog. I plan on adding pictures of my NEW (yes, new!!!) classroom and some of the ideas that I have been using in my Kinder class this year. Thanks so much for following me! :)
 
 
 
This is my favorite October book. I am going to do a Halloween unit after Fall Break using this adorable book.
