Halloween Crafts and a New Introduction!

Happy Monday!!

Before I get into my short, little post, I just have to share what's been going on in my own little Jones' world:

This was me last Tuesday:

and then.... this was me just a short (not so short at the time) 24 hours later:
My handsome husband, Parker, and I welcomed our sweet baby boy into the world:

Introducing Theodore "Theo" Lloyd Jones:

We are SO in love.

Onto Halloween crafts.

As someone who was born and raised in Salem "The Witch City" Massachusetts, Halloween is one of my all time favorite holidays! I wanted to share some of my favorite Halloween crafts I have done throughout the years... 2 are free and 2 are in Halloween units.

This is an easy craft that I used to practice word families, but they can be used to practice any phonics skills or math facts!

Halloween riddle (here)
Who is hiding there you ask, who is the classmate behind the mask?
Students draw a self-portrait and put a mask over their picture! Then, they write a little bit about themselves and try to guess who everyone is. It is a lot of fun for the kids!

Adjective pumpkins from Kelley Dolling! (here)
I love making these with my kids and it is SUCH a fun way to practice adjectives. The kids pick an adjective and create their pumpkin to match the word. This little lady got "smart" and added a big ole brain to her pumpkin. Then, they write a sentence about their pumpkin using the adjective.

She also includes some printables in her freebie for an added writing component!

  6. I want to book an event planner for my event planning arrangements. My budget is very limited so please recommend someone who can provide me good arrangements on a low-budget. Do you have any suggestions which event planner will help me in preparations?
