I think my most favorite thing about the fall is PRODUCTIVITY. I am all wilty like the flowers on my back porch by the end of September. Then, October rushes in and I get a breath of cool, productive air.
I like to bake in the fall. My most favorite EASY and yummy recipe are these pumpkin muffins. It is just a can of pumpkin, spice cake mix, and I cheated and added a bag of chocolate chips. MMMM. I baked them according to the directions on the back of the cake mix and BOOM! So good!
I also like to decorate in the fall. I try to keep the Halloween decorations minimal, just because my five year old freaks out at the mention of anything spooky. Mostly I use pumpkins, so I can keep it up until Thanksgiving. I call that efficient, not lazy...or at least that is what I tell myself!
Here is my mantel. I wanted to show off all the pumpkins I have collected, and ALSO keep them out of the hands of my super cute (but grabby) two year old. This works!
I don't tend to decorate too many surfaces because of the mentioned above two year old, but I do decorate our entry way. I found the Halloween wreath and sign for SUPER cheap last year at Walgreens after Halloween. I think I paid maybe $5 for both. I love shopping after the sales- best time to stock up! I am so sorry about the picture quality- time for a new camera I think! LOL!
Something about the fall brings out my creative side and makes me want to create things! I tend to make lots and lots of freebies and materials. You can see a snapshot of my fall freebies here. Click on the picture to get them all!
I create a fall freebie JUST for this blog post. I did an entire monster unit in second and third grade that my kids LOVED. This is just a piece of the unit. This piece is most likely appropriate for 1st- 2nd. However, you could adapt it for third without all the support and time.
It is a two-three day ELA lesson using the book Go Away Big Green Monster by Emberley! Love that book!
