I'm back from a quick but fabulous trip to South Georgia where I got to spend time with my family, eat at my favorite home-town restaurants, enjoy good home-cooking by my mom and mother-in-love, shop, visit my old church, have a pumpkin-carving contest (my husband won!), and play soccer in the front yard with the kids! It was extremely fast-paced and I'm exhausted, but spending that time with my family was sooo worth it! Even though I'm yawning every 15 minutes, I'm at least mentally and emotionally rejuvenated after a fun-filled get-a-way!
Anyway, I LOVE teaching The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything during Halloween! It is a wonderful book for predicting, WH questions, vocabulary, Story Grammar Marker, feelings, sequencing, and just plain FUN! A few months ago, I joined LessonPix, an online resource for clipart images and templates, and I'm completely addicted! The price is great ($36 a year), the pictures are awesome, and my favorite part: if they don't have an image you need, just email them, and they'll make it for you! Bill over at LessonPix has given me permission to share this download with you! I created these vocabulary cards for the story, and my kiddos are LOVING them! It makes story retell and identifying the story elements much easier for struggling kiddos. You can print them, laminate them, and either use Velcro (my choice), or hot glue sticks to the back of them! If you haven't tried LessonPix yet, it's a MUST! Hope you enjoy the activity!
