Plans for a very short week!

It's true.
God spake saying all teachers deserve a break this Halloween...
at least the teachers in my district!
I don't even care that my "fall break" is only two days...
because one of those days is Halloween and the other is the day before Halloween!
Can you hear the angels trumpeting?!
PTL People!!

But we still have 3 days, so here's what we're up to! You'll see lots of practice with rulers...because we really need lots of practice holding and using them! I always forget how hard it is for 7 year olds to handle rulers!

This year I stuck strictly to pumpkins-no bats, no owls, no spiders... not that I didn't want to teach those things, we just have no leeway in our day this year! Right now the only reading instruction is during groups and we have required programs for that time, so pumpkins it is! Which is perfectly ok! I have used the heck out of my Pumpkin No Prep printables!
But you can see I am throwing in a little Frankenstein tomorrow for some extra measurement practice! I snagged a pile of paint chips tonight at Lowe's to make these little guys and figured I could fit some more measuring in!

I'm also using an activity from my Nightsong book companion tomorrow in science. I love this game! I partner the kids up-one's the bat, the other is the moth. The bat is blindfolded and the moth makes clicking sounds. The bat has to guess the direction the sound is coming really is fun, and hard!
These peter pumpkin eater activities were a hit and hilarious! If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen the interesting writing! haha!

and this work of art as well! Wow! 

I'd love to see what you're doing, so link up with Deedee too!
