I LOVE this machine. I have read, and read, and read about it. I want one soooo desperately. I could make a ton of crafts at my home. The possibilities are endless with school, too! Follow this link to enter a giveaway yourself!

Chester Raccoon

I love the Chester Raccoon books by Audrey Penn. I know The Kissing Hand is a wonderful book to share in the beginning of the year to help ease nervous feelings in our new students. However, I LOVE using it during my nocturnal animals study later in the fall. This is a perfect time of year to study forest animals. Check out my unit on Audrey Penn and the Chester Raccoon books in my TPT store.

And the winner is...

I have already eaten too much candy! My 5 year old had many opportunities to dress up. She loves Strawberry Shortcake. She wanted to be the one character that has no costume, Plum Pudding. We improvised and here are the results.

For the news we've all been waiting for... Mrs. Richling congratulations! You are the winner of a fabulous new... GIFT CARD! Thank you to all you dear sweethearts who follow. A special thanks to those who blogged about the giveaway on your blog!

Now since halloween is finished and we are moving to Thanksgiving, we are using one of our decorative pumpkins (non-carved) to do a little science experiment. I found this on Pinterest. I hope it works!
