October Fun and a Freebie

**Updated 10/30/14 and revised FREEBIE.

I was recently going through some pictures and wanted to share some of my pics from Octobers past!!

An Elvis pumpkin for the annual decorating contest.

We lost to a pig pink pumpkin. :-(  I just noticed that Elvis has no nose...oops.

We had fun studying standard and non-standard units of measurement.
A few die cut pumpkins, a yard stick to measure and mark the standard unit side and you have a lesson on measurement!

Below is our interactive bulletin board that is a lesson of its own.  I used die cuts of leaves and wrote double digit addition and subtraction problems on each one.  The students had to solve the problems and decide if the answer was even or odd. 

I've seen several teachers posting pics of what their students thought they should be for Halloween, so I joined in!
This is what we started with:
This is a few of my favorites:

And finally, for those of you that are still reading, here's your freebie!

Happy Halloween and don't forget to leave me some love in the comments.
