Totally Spooktacular!



Hi, friends!  We celebrated Halloween at school today and it was oh-so-much fun!  Seriously, I cannot get over how fun our staff is.  Our fifth grade teachers dressed like our third grade teachers, and it was such a hoot.  Our admin walked around as Ketchup and a Hotdog.  Love it ALL.


One of my former first grade sisters complained of a stomachache and told her students before lunch that she was going to call in for a sub.  Then, she got in costume and picked them up from lunch as VIOLA SWAMP!  I sooooo wish I had a picture!  Anyway, the bottomline is that I LOVE MY SCHOOL :)

Speaking of spooky stuff, I’m having a Spooktacular Savings sale this weekend!  20% off in my TpT shop now through Sunday, October 28th. 


If you’re looking for holiday-themed goodies, the Candy Corn Bandit will be on sale, as well as my November pack: Oh So Thankfula great resource to help you prep for the month leading up to Thanksgiving.

I’m being evaluated on Monday, so I’ve got lots to keep me busy this weekend!  She’s coming to observe my kindergarten RTI group, so I’ll be sure to share the lesson, activities, and assessments I’ll be using.  Expect a freebie :)

Happy Friday, all!!!!!

what a fun day! I miss that we no longer can dress up for halloween in my district - my first year of teaching (6 years ago) we snuck some costumes on our kids by hosting a "character day" in Kindergarten, but it just wasn't the same. Thanks for sharing, I love seeing schools still getting to have fun with this!

Where in the world did you get your cute Halloween t-shirt?

Kendra said...

So fun that y'all get to dress up and actually, well...have FUN! My school is all about the "standard mode of dress", tutoring, and preparing for the STARR test. Makes me sad. But, I enjoy getting to see other elementary schools actually being elementary schools! :o)

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
