I love all of the invitation to play ideas that I've seen online and wanted to try it out with a community helpers theme. I like that invitation to play is an open ended type of play. There is no right or wrong way to use the supplies. The little ones are allowed to be creative and explore in their own way.

Have you heard of the KidloLand app? It is an all-in-one app for toddlers and preschools that includes so much - games, activities, songs, rhymes, and more. When they reached out and asked if I wanted to review their app, I jumped at the chance, because I am always looking for educational apps for my girls to play.

After loving our apple sight word mazes last week, I decided I needed to make pumpkin mazes next. These are so easy to use. I used glittery bingo markers this time to color the sight words, but you can use crayons or laminate and use plastic pieces to cover the words. This is perfect practice for fall or Halloween.

With fall in the air, we are all about all things apples right now. We took our first trip of the year to the cider mill for donuts and apple cider this weekend. My girls are begging to pick apples this week. Since I have apples on the brain, I made up a quick sight word freebie that focuses on 5 words - from, said, make, that and look. If you are looking for more sight word freebies, check out our sight word mega bundle.

Do you compare different versions of Cinderella with your students? With the push for Common Core Standards among many states, comparing and contrasting text (like Cinderella) is becoming an even more important skill taught in many classrooms. There are so many different versions of Cinderella (check out ten of our favorite books here) and you can even find some of the texts read aloud on YouTube (check out ten of our favorite videos here). Today I'm sharing one of my new favorite versions of Cinderella along with some FREE graphic organizers to make comparing and contrasting even easier for your students.
