Can you believe it? It is October already. I LOVE autumn, I love October, and I love linking up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade.
We finally bought me a new car. My hunk of junk that refused to die, but really didn't work...just had to be put to away. I resisted for a long time because I didn't want car payments when the old one still ran. But we bit the bullet and bought a new to me little truck. I LOVE it!! To top it off my husband surprised me with custom license plates.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if a little fairy appeared to help me. I am beginning to think those little shoemaking elves would be more than welcome in my house.
Now for a treat...a Halloween treat. If you have any of those bat rings hanging around, add a witch cauldron and make a game out of "guessing" how many are in the cauldron. First count the bats (or whatever little trinket you find on the Halloween isle), then put some in the cauldron. Students then need to figure out how many are missing. This freebie will help with keeping track of the numbers. There is also a math talk card for thinking through the game.
