Primary Punchbowl Fall Favorites!

Hello, friends! 
I am SO excited to welcome you all to the Primary Punchbowl Blog Hop!! Our collaborative blog has been in the works for months, and we couldn't wait any longer to share with you!!

I think, globally, most teachers LOVE Fall. It's a fresh start to our year. The weather is changing and is beautiful. We have (hopefully) sunk into our routines and our students are feeling comfortable! One of the books I LOVE to read is Go Away, Big Green Monster,  by Ed Emberley.
 Many of my kids start to feel nervous when October begins, because some of our stories are a little spooky. I typically read this one first, because it is a silly way to defend themselves from their fears. :) When we are done reading, we do a craft that goes along with the story at centers. The first genre we assess in Kindergarten is Narrative, so I have my students retell the story as they create this one. 
We also do a writing project that goes along with a direct draw project. You're in luck, because you are getting this one for FREE! :) Just click here: FREEBIE
And NOW, I have my 4 featured products on sale 50% off....
The first is an emergent reader about the beginning of school. 
I make and use A LOT of these in my classroom... This is an easy, traceable freebie to establish norms and schedules. 
I also get really into Fairy Tales in Fall, so I have featured my Three Little Pigs Unit:
Something that I have found to be a HUGE factor in my students reading fluently is my creation of Pocket Chart Packs. October's is included in the sale!
Finally, we are studying word families all year long! I have my newly created Word Families pack as a featured product this month as well!

BUT WAIT! There's more!! You could win!! Enter my contest, and be sure to visit our blog to have a chance at winning a pair of Kendra Scott earrings or a teacher basket!!
