October is So Fun!

I can't believe we're already half way through October!
We're still working on our five senses and we got to create this adorable little lapbook from Lita Lita.
The first day we did the inside of the lapbook, the coloring part. They loved it because they not only got to draw what they did like, but what they didn't like as well! They were able to complete it independently in writing center!
The next day, I wrote sentence starters on the board for my class and then we brainstormed ideas for the writing. Stuck this in the writing center again and look at their sentences! Some were even able to write "I taste pizza with my mouth." Impressed!

I just loved all the components to it! Thanks Paula!
{I think that's a belly button ;)}

They've being doing such a fabulous job learning about their senses.

So I thought, perfect time to throw in these awesome scented highlighters from Scentos!

When they do a fabulous job on their work, they get a big star with the scented highlighter. Such a great motivator!

We also studied bats which are oh-so cute in crafts but pretty darn scary looking in real life!!!
 We made these adorable bats from A Cupcake for the Teacher and then added adjectives to the wings.
Of course, they wanted to take the bats home and didn't want me to hang them up. Haha! Never fails!

We also played some fun batty games during math!


 Next week we're going to have some fun with monsters! Arg!!!
