This has been my mantra all week. We had major storms and flooding here last week, plus a cold front, plus Halloween, so the kids have been a bit
wired energetic. I wish I could bottle up some of their energy for myself. Until then, coffee will have to do.
The Little Scarecrow Boy set from First Grade Blue Skies and we went a little scarecrow crazy. We did several of the lessons from the pack and compiled them into individual student books. We are seriously lacking construction paper at school right now, so we improved on the scarecrows. I gave them each a paper bag and bowl. They made a scarecrow head with the bag, stuffed it with scrap paper, and decorated his hat to go on top. It was as detailed as the adorable one in the packet, but they loved making it.

I added a Christmas math center unit to my store this week. I can't wait to use these with my firsties. There's a little bit of everything, including counting coins, number order, skip counting, missing addends, and more. Click here or on any of the pictures to check it out more.
And finally, the Peanuts Movie comes out today. We won't make it there today, but I WILL see this movie in the theaters! (I honestly can't remember the last time I picked the movie we went to see. The kids and the Mr. are usually the ones choosing movies, but this time, it's my turn!)
