October Bookmark

These are the bookmarks that I hand out to my students in October. We use these for writing prompts. I print them on cardstock and have the kiddos keep them in their pencil boxes until the month is over, then they take them home. Click on the pic above to grab it for yourself!

Goodbye Apples, Hello Pumpkins!

At the end of our Apples unit, I always let the kids make apple pies. This is a kid friendly recipe that I got several years ago from a very wonderful parapro:

Canned biscuits (large)
Canned apples

1. Give each student a piece of wax paper & let them flatten their biscuit.
2. Give each student some butter to spread on their biscuit with their finger.
3. Place 1 or 2 apples on the biscuit & sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
4. Students fold their biscuit over & pinch the edge to close.
5. Fry or cook until golden brown.
6. Eat!!!

Tip: Don't forget your can opener!
