These printables provide a wonderful way for teachers to show their "fall" spirit with the Halloween cat as he is featured in the corner of the pages, without the entire page being so devoted to Halloween that the practicality of the subject matter is diluted. Students will have to draw from 1-10 "fall" objects that the cat would see if he went for a walk:
- 6 pumpkins
Then, mark an X on the set that has less.
Then students have to trace and copy a sentence and circle a key word. Also, they have an additional direction to color a part of the cat a specific color. Students will have fun with the "Halloween Cat!"
-These printables go along with a black and white (1/2 sheet formatted for savings) book that I made to enhance number sense in July. There is a preview for that as well in my store. Students will love it! Don't forget to take a peak at it.
-In addition, I made a printable for students to work together or with parents for word families. I am a huge believer in word families and the importance of becoming so familiar with word families and the ability to recognize these families! Eventually students will recognize families, substitute the initial sounds, make new words, make longer words, and become stronger readers. I made some worksheets for that in here as well.
-Also, you can use these bubble sheets as assessments, especially at the middle of the year to see if students may be struggling at the beginning, middle, or ending sounds.
