It is definitely hard to believe it is already November! Where does the time go?! Unfortunately I feel like November is going to fly by too with the weekends filling up and we have some special activities going on at school with the kiddos too this month.

Listening to the rain falling outside and the quiet. Ethan usually knows when I wake up and closely follows, but right now he is till asleep so I am savoring the quiet!
Loving- that it's the weekend...I thought it was Friday on Tuesday so that shows you how long the week was!
Thinking- about the baby's room. I am going to buy new carpet today because it is really nasty. For some reason when we moved in all of the other rooms were done except the one bedroom. Weird, I know. I am going to look into the closet door, molding, and new blinds too. The room was in the process of being redone, but now we don't have a choice (which I am super excited about!).
Wanting- I love Starbucks pumpkin spice latte and I heard their Winter flavors are out now...yummmm!
Needing- I am desperately needing a day to catch up on things home and work related. I am hoping with the second trimester beginning soon my energy levels will go up and I will be more eager to get things done after school. 
A Yummy pin: I literally opened up pinterest and this was there...Yummy! Tagalong cupcakes...chocolate and peanut butter is heaven! Check it out here.

Also, I am participating in a giveaway over at Polka Dot Kinders. Make sure to check it out!

Last, but not least GO BLUE! The Michigan vs. Michigan State game is today so it will be a fun day of football!


I am linking up with Kacey for Five for Friday.

Did anyone else feel like this week was never going to end?! I knew it was a bad sign on Tuesday when I told my para as I was heading to a meeting to have a great weekend. It shows you how tired how I am! Halloween was a lot of fun with my kiddos, but it does throw the kids for a loop and make then out of sorts (even the ones that don't understand it). 

Well, here are some things we did this week.

1. The am class made some cats and the pm class made some bats.

2. We made some witches. This a pic of the pm's witches.

This is the am's shape witches.

3. We read There was an Old Lady who wasn't Afraid of Anything and we sequenced the pictures and the lady can walk through everything she encountered.

4. I have seen this on quite a few sites and finally have had the opportunity to do it. The tray is filled with rice and the letter or numbers. The students pick them out and put them in the puzzle. My students with autism especially enjoyed this activity!

5. A peek at our Halloween party. You can see my post here with more details.

It was a fun week, but exhausting. Next week we are going to be reviewing colors with the am and with the pm we are going to be learning about space. It should be a fun week! Have a fabulous weekend!!! :)
Today we celebrated Halloween with our little ones. It is our "short day" as we have Professional development and the kids are in class for a half hour less. Since some of my kiddos don't like being in their costumes and this is not their home school so parents may have to split their time between two schools if there are siblings.

Anyways, here are the activities we did. We sang some songs for our parents (spider on the floor and witch's brew).

Then, we split into centers.

We made glow in the dark lanterns. You crack the glow sticks and pour the liquid into the empty container. Add glitter and seal (I used hot glue on the lids to make sure my little ones wouldn't open it).

Shake it and it glows!

We decorated them with stickers and added a pipe cleaner handle.


We made spider donuts (circle donut, legs made out of pretzels, frosting and candy corn eyes).

We also played with play-doh for the first time this year. The kids were super excited!
It was a fun day, but now I am exhausted and headed off to bed! Have a Happy Halloween!
