Hooray!! I am so excited to link up with Tara for her Monday Made It!
So, first off, I FINALLY feel like I approve of my Halloween mantle decor. :) You know that feeling that you play around with it until it's right? Well, every year I change it, so this year was no different. The only thing that I COULDN'T do this year was attach plug-in lights. Why? Because Baby B. would be pulling them down! :( So...if anyone out there with a 1.5 year old has any decorating tips...especially for the upcoming Christmas season, I am welcome to ANY SUGGESTIONS!!! :)
I did use battery powered lights this year, so that solved my problems.
The banner is a free printable from Yesterday on Tuesday's Blog. In the future I might make it look cuter with ribbon...you know, when the said 1.5 year old isn't running around. :)
Ok, well, if you read my blog you know that I am teaching in a WHOLE new school (middle!) and a WHOLE new grade (6th!), That being said, I really cannot use ANY of my old stand-by's for Halloween, math, science, etc. So...I have been relishing in the fact that I am having FUN creating new things for my students to do....and even MORE fun is the fact that 6th graders STILL LOVE CUTE THINGS! :)
Case in point:
I made these vocabulary foldables for our Interactive Science Notebooks. That night, I would say 75% of my classes went home and did this:
We have been working very hard with our Biome Unit, and if you follow my blog, you will know that I am in the beginning stages of trying my hand at "Flipping" my classroom, where as the students are the teachers, and I am the facilitator. So far, so good:
They love working throughout the room--which I am totally fine with! :) They work hard, so that is all that matters. :)
Over all, I love the Biome unit we are doing, and I CANNOT wait for the presentations!!!! I'll be blogging about that SOON!!!!!
You can read more about this here, plus the unit is 20% off for the rest of the week!:
My last made it, I've talked about before HERE, but for the rest of the week they are 20% off! Just in time for Halloween! :)
I hope that you all have a FABULOUS month of October!! If you haven't grabbed MY FREEBIE Halloween TREAT which is just a PREVIEW of these centers (1 of the 5) be sure to get it! Just click the picture below, and please don't forget to leave feedback! :)
