Pumpkins, Veterans, Thanksgiving FREEBIES!


 Happy Fall Season, me hearties! 

Where did the time go? One day it is summer, hot and humid! Then all of a sudden, the air is cool, and over night the leaves have turned into red and gold gems!

Speaking of gems, you have come to the right spot! I have some autumn treasure for you.

First, let's visit the pumpkin patch. 


This FREE product is a sample of an engaging and challenging Place Value Task Card practice set designed for a range of students. Use these task cards to differentiate for advanced second graders, to provide practice for third grade students, or to review with fourth graders at the beginning of the school year. There are 8 task cards. Each card contains a riddle involving two-digit and/or three-digit numbers.



If you want more task cards like the one above, check out the much larger set of cards. In the resource below, there are seven sets for a total of 42 cards!



For additional challenge, have students create their own task cards and trade with other students to solve. Also provided are blank riddle cards, recording sheet, and answer key sheet.


Our next treasure celebrates our country's veterans.

Schools are closed on Veterans Day to honor veterans, but what do our students really know about this holiday? To help my students become more aware of veterans and their service to our homeland, I created a resource that explains Veterans Day and connects students to veterans.


Your students will celebrate family members or friends who are veterans by creating a Veterans Wall of Honor. For each family/friend veteran, students will complete a Veteran Information Form that identifies the veteran, the branch of service, the veteran’s rank, years of service, and type of service. These forms along with veteran photos, if available, and blue or gold stars are displayed on a wall in your classroom or hallway.


Also included are:

• Parent Letter

• Veterans Day Book and Website Lists

• Veterans Day Circle Map and KWL Chart

• Veterans Day Cloze Activity

• Blue and Gold Stars/White Stars

• Veterans Wall of Honor Banner


Here is one more treasure for the Fall season. This creative  resource is focused on Thanksgiving. There are two writing activities. Activity 1 gives students the opportunity to reflect on what they are thankful for. It also walks them through the process of writing a paragraph.  Activity 2 is a couplet activity based 

on the picture book, THANKFUL, by Eileen Spinelli.  



Included are:

  • Graphic organizers
  • Paragraph sample
  • Revision checklist
  • Editing checklist
  • Final copy sheets
  • Teaching Tips





Thank you for visiting with me. I hope you found a treasure or two for you and your students. 


Have a wonderful Fall season!
