Happy Fall Y’All Blog Hop

Happy Fall Y’All! I am so excited to have linked up with Mrs. D’s Corner to bring you this great Fall inspired blog hop! And of course, I’ve included a “Fall” themed freebie for you! But first, take a look at some of my Fall favorites below!

Up first, here is what I am reading both in my classroom and at home this Fall. I love the book Awesome Autumn by Bruce Colestone. The pictures are actual photographs which captures the crisp feeling of the season. 
At home, I WILL be reading (looking at certain chapters, taking notes on) this fabulous book, The Reading Strategies Book, which offers ways to strengthen guided reading by providing ideas organized by each guided reading level. LOVE IT!

Here is what I’ll be wearing this Fall. Have you seen these NEW jean leggings from the Gap? They have an elastic waist and pockets in the back. They are very slimming and COMFORTABLE!! Perfect with a pair of boots or my Tieks! And on the weekend, I will be pulling out my fav Fall jacket - my good ole’ North Face. Comfy, cozy, and warm. I feel young in this jacket. Like a college kid again. Haha!

And, here is what I am making. Pulling out the “classroom” crock pot from the closet and making a sweet smelling batch of applesauce for my firsties. We write a how to and list the steps for making this delicious fall treat. I do the cutting of the apples but my friends get to stir it during the day. So very exciting! And the smell it emits brings classes far and wide to our door. I try to get all my kiddos to at least try it! Some ask for seconds and thirds. The pot is always scraped clean!
And at home, my favorite Fall meal because it is so easy and is ready when I get home from work AND because I can smell the goodness as soon as I open my front door - crock pot beef stew. I don’t really have a recipe for it. I just put in beef cubes, celery, carrots, potatoes and a seasoning pack from McCormick. Yum Yum!

And now, what you have been waiting for....your Fall Freebie! Here is a Fall emergent reader, “What Do you See in the Fall?”  This cute little reader is perfect for guided reading or whole group. It reinforces the sight words I and see, and in and uses color words to describe each item which of course is supported by a picture. I hope you and your class enjoy it!
