It is Fall and a FREEBIE!

 Oh my gosh!! Can you say SLACKER?!! I have meant to blog before now, but have just not gotten around to it!

I have been enjoying the beautiful fall weather in the North Georgia mountains! My husband and I went to one of the local apple houses on Sunday and bought a bag of apples, ate some scrumptious homemade chicken and dumplings, and then had a fresh made apple pie!! Needless to say I was stuffed by the time we left!

I have to tell you (if I haven't already) that fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love to see all the leaves change into the beautiful reds, yellows, and orange.
I also love the cool temps because I love to wear sweatshirts and jeans. I am all about comfort and jeans with a cozy sweatshirt is SO comfortable.

What season is your favorite? Leave me a comment and let me know! I would love to hear from you!

Now it is on to a freebie! Thought I better offer one since it has been so long since I blogged and I know this blog post has nothing to do with school, but sometimes you just have to write about something else.   

Here is the freebie!!
 If you like this freebie, it is a part of my Halloween Math and Literacy packet below.

I have also just posted a new book study and activities unit to go with the book Minnie and Moo Meet Frankenswine's Monster.
 It is a cute story of 2 cows named Minnie and Moo that think they are meeting Frankenswine's Monster. I think 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders would love the story.
The unit covers many of the Common Core Standards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade.

Hope you enjoy the freebie!! Happy Fall!

Bear Watch and a Freebie!!

 I love living in the country!

Where else can you have a visit from a bear at 2:00 in the morning?!!

Needless to say I was wide awake after the visit and my husband spent the rest of the night on bear watch!! 

Wish I had a picture of the bear, but let me say it was huge!! 

Now for something completely different!
I wanted to share with you what I have been working on and have just posted in my TpT store.

It is: Message In A Bottle Scrambled Sentences and Capitals!

If you would like to check it out just click on the picture of the cover.

I thought of a cute way to store this station!!
I made a water bottle into my message bottle!
I hot glued the labels(that are included in the product) to my water bottle.
Then I cut out the sentences and stored them in my bottle!
When students go to the station, they open the bottle and pull out the message.
Then they write the sentence(message)correctly on the response sheet.
What a fun station!!

 There is also a sorting game for words that need capital letters and words that need small letters.

Since this station is about sentences and using capital letters, I made a math freebie to go along with it!!

To grab this freebie, click on the picture!

Hope you have a magnificent Monday!!
