We LOVE Literature

One of our VERY favorite stories to read around Halloween time is Harriet’s Halloween Candy by Nancy Carlson.  In the story Harriet learns the hard way that sharing her Halloween candy makes her feel better than eating it.  We also use this story with our kiddos to reinforce TONS of math and literacy skills.  image

We’ve updated all of our activities, added a few new ones, and combined them into one unit.  It is now available on TpT

Skills include:  estimating, counting, sorting by attribute, graphing, analyzing a graph to answer questions, problem solving, sequencing events from the story, identifying the main character, setting, problem and resolution, writing complete sentences.

And now . . . it’s time to announce the winner of our Reading A-Z giveaway.reading a to z winnersignature


  1. Thanks for sharing your talents with us! I'm a huge fan! I was wondering if either of you do "author" studies in your classrooms? And if so which authors you use? Can't wait to see what you two come up with next!!

  2. I am so glad that I found your Houghton Mifflin Resource pack!! I just love it. I will be doing the "whip" around activity to practice sight words tomorrow! I have the lightening words ready to begin next week!! Thank you for the opportunity to use your hard work in my own classroom!
