Dana at
nominated me to be part of this fun linky- and just in time... for Halloween! There have been some fun Halloween things that my kiddies and I have done the past week...

My kids, myself (and all the other teachers at school that walk by room!) love this little craftivity:

The first weekend it was listed for FREE and I am soo glad I snagged it! It is adorable and really gave my kids some creative writing time. It is not everyday that you get to completely pretend!! We read this book to get us started:

This book is too cute and would be great to talk about predictions too... We just read it to get into the "witch" mode!

We have also been working on addition and subtraction story problems, so I created this freebie:

So, now I guess it is my turn to Boo some other friends... Check out some of these other bloggers to hear their great ideas:

1. Lyndsey at A Year of Many Firsts
2. Ali at At Home in First
3. Christie at First Grade Fever!
4. Rebecca at Darlin' in First
5. Anna Brantley at Crazy for First Grade

  2. Hi!
    My name is Joana, I am 24 years old and I am from Portugal (next to Spain).
    I am a primary school teacher in a private college and this is my third year of teaching. Since last year I discovered many blogs like yours through “Pinterest”.
    I implemented some of your ideas and I am fascinated by your creativity, cooperation in classroom, independence and autonomy that you give to the children.
    I’d tried to do many things similar to yours but they were not always well accepted by my director and coordinator, because innovation makes a difference, and in making a difference insecurity is more than often created!
    I wonder if there’s any possibility to do an internship in your school, to learn and see, in practice, what I visualize in your blogs.
    I’d love to get an international experience for about one or two years in your country.
    My partner, Tiago, is also a teacher. He teaches English to Kindergarten and primary school children. He wanted to go to China but for me, it’s too far, and then there is the difference in the culture and language which would cause other types of adaption, which I feel would impede my spontaneity. He would love to learn new approaches and different strategies in his field.
    My e-mail is:, and I trust that you will be able to assist me in improving my educational skills. If it is necessary to give my contact to another person, please feel free to do so.
    With my best regards,
    Joana Fernandes
