Christmas Picture Frame Wreath

As I am getting all festive for the holiday season, I have a few crafty ideas I am trying to get out of the way.  I love going on Pinterest and looking at all of the Christmas ideas.  One neat idea I came across a while back is to make a picture frame wreath or other decoration using a frame.  Basically, you just use a picture frame for the base of the wreath and decorate it sort of like you would a regular wreath.  When I came across a white frame on clearance for $1.50, I decided it was time to get crafty. I just love a bargain! I used thin wire to hang the ornaments from the top of the frame.  I used garland to hide the wire.  It turned out pretty cute.  I have it hanging between my front door and a window.  Here is the finished picture frame wreath.

Yes, I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I am quickly getting into the Christmas spirit.  It's kind of hard not to when you see all the Christmas decorations in stores. I always like to give my co-workers or neighbors a little something for Christmas, so I made these whimsical tags to use on gifts for friends.  I thought I would share the tags with you.  Just click on the link below.  The file is a png image saved in a power point.  All you have to do is open it up and print the slide. Punch a hole in the corner and add a ribbon. Instant Christmas tag. :-)

Your students will love receiving one of these colorful Thanksgiving bookmarks.  Laminate the bookmarks for durability.  I love placing something like this on my students' desks where they find it when they arrive in the classroom. Another option is to meet them at the door one morning and pass them out as they come in.  It brings a smile to their face and makes them feel appreciated.

Free Fall Summarizing Activity

When we teach students to pull out the most important details from a text and organize those details in a meaningful way, we are teaching them to summarize.  According to a statistic I read on the West Virginia Department of Education website (taken from Marzano research), the skill of summarizing is one of the top ten most important skills taught in school.   I would say that means it's pretty important. :-)  With that said, it's not something we should just teach once and walk away from it never to return. It should be a skill we come back to time and time again. In order to do just that, I have made a fall summarizing activity sheet that can be used with any book or story.  It's a free activity and can be found in my Teachers pay Teachers store by clicking the link below.

Fun Fall Preschool Activities and Treats

Yesterday my son had a little Halloween party at his church preschool.  The room mom did a great job of putting together  a fall activity that I thought was perfect for preschoolers or even kindergartners. The finished product turned out so cute, so I thought I would share.   It was a little water bottle jack-o-lantern. It was made using a small water bottle (the more rounded kind), a piece of orange construction paper, some black face pieces that were already cut out, and a green cap for the top.  All the kids really had to do was tear the paper into small pieces, kind of give them a crumpled look, and stick them on the bottle.  Once the bottle was filled up, they screwed the top on and stuck the eyes and mouth on.  Those pieces had little sticky pads on the back which worked well.  The craft was such a great idea for little hands. Here are some pictures.





In addition to the fun water bottle jack-o-lantern craft, they enjoyed a few fall themed treats.  One was rice krispy candy corn on a stick.  The other were cute little acorns.  The acorns were so cute and would be fun for any adult to serve at a party too.  They were made using a Hershey Kiss, a small Vanilla Wafer, melted chocolate to stick everything together, and top it off with a small peanut butter chip.  Adorable!!  Here are some pics to share.
