Boo-ed....the Good Kind

In no other scenario am I a fan of booing....very unsportsmanlike.  (Unless you are booing an ump's bad call during a baseball game.)  However some shout out booing is going on and I am a fan of this kind:-)
Blogger Shout-Out:
This week I was BOO-ed by my BBF Jenny over at Owl Things First.  If you haven't already, you definitely need to go visit.  She always has cute and useful freebies and you can still get in on her giveaway.
3-5 October Activities:
The first one is an activity I did last year.  We were working elements of line and shape.  So we cut out a pumpkin and added lines that were thick, thin, squiggly, straight, etc to our pumpkin.
We also make Self-Portraits using a pumpkin for a head:-)
Then we added a speech bubble that said what we loved about first _____ grade.  The bulletin board title was, "35 Pumpkins Sitting on a fence, the first one said,...." or something like that.
The Inpired Apple's Candy Corn Bandit is a blast!  If I hadn't done it last year I would absolutely be repeating it!  Click the bandit to check it out.

I love The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything!
And I found this chart on Pinterest, to go along with it.

And my last favorite October activity is my Chickadee's favorite brain break...that we only do in October:-)
