A little HALLOWEEN Freebie

Is anyone else feeling the pressure this year? Some weeks I feel like I have it together and other weeks I think I'm loosing my mind. ( That happens to teachers-right?!) I often wonder how everyone else keeps it all straight. This year I have completely relied on my smart phone to remind me of everything going on, from meetings to reminders to tell my co-workers. Please tell me some of you do the same thing :).

I needed a little shopping time this weekend and ended up at the Dollar Tree TWICE today. My daughter went with me and when I came back with all kinds of goodies, my son wanted to go. So being the good mommy I am, I took him. Here are some things I found to use in my classroom.

I saw these cute trick or treat bags and knew I needed to do something with them. So I thought to make it into a cute eyeball toss game. The kiddos can toss the plastic eyeballs into the bag and count by 10's as they do so. I also got the eyeballs and plastic web bowl at the Dollar Tree.

Puppets for $1... I had to have them!!

My daughter modeling each puppet- she loves to create her own stories with them.
I made a weekly dinner menu using a picture frame, which you all have probably seen on Pinterest, and my daughter loves to write on it because it writes so smooth and erases easily. So I picked up some more frames for $1 and made these trace and write Halloween words for Writing Station.

Let me know what your kiddos think if you use them. Thanks!!
