The first is a literacy station that my kids love. All you need is a few cheap plastic jack-o-lantern pails and some dry erase markers. Using the recording sheet, the kids practice forming upper and lowercase letters on their pumpkins, then check them off on the sheet. When they're finished, they simply erase their writing and the pumpkin is ready for the next group. How's that for some festive handwriting practice? You can grab the recording sheet under the picture.

I also wanted to share the calendar cards I made for November. The pattern that the cards create is a little more complex than October's ABAB pattern, as their are three different pictures that make an ABC pattern. I also included special cards for Election Day, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. If you'd like a fresh set of cards for your calendar, you can grab a set below the picture,

Well, that's it for now. I'd love a comment if you grab one of the freebies (especially the calendar cards - let me know if you're using them so I can know if I should keep posting them!)
Have a great night and stay safe if Hurricane Sandy is heading your way!
