Celebrating Fall AND Stinky Feet

 The return of pumpkin spice lattes, scarf-wearing weather, and apple cider donuts are just a few of the reasons I love this time of year. But all of those pale in comparison to my *LOVE* of Halloween. Ohmiword, it's my favorite holiday! I had to contain myself from dancing for joy when I found out that the teachers at my new school dress up for Halloween since nobody at my last school did. So in honor of the arrival of fall and my not so far off favorite Holiday....

1) I've uploaded my Witches Brew Mini Unit that is always a class favorite! The activities in this pack are designed around a poem that I created. We practice the poem daily and engage in some digraph identification, fluency, work work, graphing, and "how to" writing along the way. Oh yeah and this weekend only it's 20% off!

2) I want to send you all over to my girl Susan's blog [T.G.I.F -Thank God It's First Grade] to check out this *Spook*tacular giveaway she has put together in honor of 500 Followers!! It's the Jack-pot-o-lantern of Halloween goodies!

3) I'm throwing a SALE! This weekend everything in my TPT STORE will be F-A-L-L-I-N-G to 20% off!!

[If you want to join in the Fall Savings fun then be sure to link your store up with Second Grade Maniac]

And before I go I want to share with you one last *summer* highlight before she fades into the night...

My first & second graders reached 20 minutes of stamina for Read to Self yesterday. So today we had a *stinky feet* read to self.

This was their promised reward for reaching their goal. I feigned disgust over the smell in the room. They were thrilled- THRILLED I tell you! Sometimes, it's the little things right? :)

Happy Friday & {almost} Fall Yall!!


  1. Awww, I love "stinky feet" read to self! Although my kiddos this year would spend the whole time smelling feet and not reading. :)
