Scarecrow Fun

I am so excited about this week!!!  
I had something totally different planned, but I came across an inspiration...

and POOF, plans started changing!!

I don't know how I missed this when Deanna Jump first posted this but O M G!!! How adorable is this scarecrow??????  This made me start thinking about all my other cute fall/halloween stuff that I have spent half my paycheck on this month - please tell me you can relate!!!!!  :)  

I had already prepared this:
from Mrs. Kim Adsit and her Fall Literacy Game Pack and I had planned on using it last week but just never got to it. So, Sunday evening around 7ish I made the connection between the 2 - SCARECROWS!!  I know - I'm a little slow! LOL!!!  This connection led me to a big hunt through all the rest of my fall stuff I had acquired over the past few weeks.  I found a few things, but I made a few things too!!  You know what that means for you????  FREEBIES!!  Yippeeeeee!!!!  Here they are!

I made these to go along with Kim's Alphabet Scarecrow Roll Say Keep game I showed above. I have been trying to find a way to introduce stamps to my babies and thought this would be a perfect way.  Depending on the level I have in my group, they can stamp the matching letter the member of our group rolled, or they can stamp the opposite (capital or lowercase) letter that was rolled by a group member.  I can also put this in a center next week and they "should" be able to do this independently!!

I made this color coded patterning activity for a math tub!  You should know the drill by now - Run the scarecrow on 6 different colors.  Cut and glue the pattern starters to the back of each scarecrow.  Laminate and you are good to go!!  I had a spider one, and a bat one like this but of course I didn't have a Scarecrow one - sooooo I made one!! :) 

We are doing some of the fantastic activities Deanna has in her 
Scarecrow Math and Literacy Fun packet and I will share some pics as we go!!  We are also doing some great activities from my other amazing fellow bloggers!  I can't wait to share!!!   I hope you all have a great week.  I had a short week last week and this week due to Fall Break for the kiddos - and staff development for us.
