October Currently & Monday Made It

Happy October Everyone!  I can't believe it's here already.  My class is finally getting into the groove of our routines and the weather has been perfect lately.  

Realized after I had already saved this as an image (and didn't save it any other way) that the book was supposed to be my favorite October Season book!  Whoops- the answer to that would be "There was an Old Lady who Swallowed some Leaves."  The books in this series are good for engaging my students in literacy and also for sequencing activities.

I bought a bunch of stuff at Target the other day for Fall and Halloween.  Here are some of my goodies and the activities I made to go with them:

Apple, pumpkin, ghost & leaf foam cut outs for something I haven't thought of yet- any ideas?
Halloween, turkey, leaf stickers for patterning and counting.
Pine cones-I think I'd like to do a sorting activity with these if I can find another size.
Skeleton erasers for counting activites.
The foam stickers are sea/ocean themed but were on clearance so I grabbed them.
Mini clothespins- they were just so cute!

My Monday Made Its:

I also bought a pack of each of these table scatters.  I made this sorting activity.

 And this sorting activity for my kids who can read to work on vocabulary.
And I hot glued a bunch to clothespins for patterning activities that will also work on fine motor!

Don't forget to link up for October Currently with Farley and check out Monday Made It over at 4th grade Frolics!
