Decomposing Spider FREEBIE

I love when things just naturally tie together! Last week we were learning about spiders and I was inspired to create this little spider to review decomposing the number 8. Here is what I came up with...

I bought a spider web at Dollar Tree and BOOM! A easy math hallway display!

I chose to use red and yellow as the leg colors because we have been using the red and yellow two-sided counters. If you would like to download this FREE activity in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store click the picture below!

Enjoy your LAST week of October! Can you believe it? 


Community Helpers

We had so much fun learning about community helpers and fire safety this week! 

We read lots of non-fiction texts about firefighters and wrote about firefighters together. 

We also made firefighters! These are from my Firefighter Craft on TPT. 

I even made a big fire truck for the hallway. I was pretty excited about how it turned out! 

The local firefighters even came to visit! 

I was so glad that my kids were able to see a firefighter in full gear. They can look scary in all the stuff! He was even nice enough to take a picture with every kindergarten student!!!

 This little friend was a huge fan!

We also checked out the inside on an ambulance and peeked into the fire truck.

It was such a fun experience for the kids!

On Friday, we talked about a special community helper we have in our school...The chefs in our cafeteria! Our kitchen manager was sweet enough to come visit our classroom AND bring cooking gear for everyone!

We learned about the importance of wearing hairnets, aprons and gloves when preparing food for others.

They looked SO PRECIOUS in their cooking gear. They kept asking, "Do we get to take this outfit home?" 

We even learned how chefs use science tools like thermometers for cooking! Here we are checking out a thermometer and watching the red line in cold water.

We even enjoyed a healthy snack!

Have a GREAT Saturday! 


Gearing Up for Fire Safety Week?

Happy Saturday! 
It is finally feeling like Fall! Some of my favorite units to teach are in the Fall. We just wrapped up our apple week and next week is fire safety! I am stopping in real quick to share my newest creation on Teachers Pay Teachers! It is the perfect addition to your fire safety week!

It includes a few different writing prompts for you to choose from that fit right inside the jacket! I will be introducing the sight word "are" next week, so I chose to use this prompt. 

Other prompts include:
