Do you need some cute Halloween clipart?

I have several different clipart sets and digital papers to choose from.

And once you've had a look at those, be sure to check out some great Halloween games and freebies I have (links are at the bottom of the post).

Skelly the Skeleton Girl Review: Free Activities

I have a very sweet book to share with you, plus some free follow-up activities

It seems a little early in the season to share skeleton books, but I have it on my mind because I've been making sugar skull clipart for the last week. 

Cactus Books for Kids: Free Coloring Page

Hi Friends!

I've been making cactus clipart the last couple of weeks so I thought I'd look for some books about cacti and share those with you.

Clementina's Cactus by Ezra Jack Keats is a charming wordless picture book. It's a very sweet story about a man and his daughter, Clementina, who happen upon a lone cactus. The next morning they discover a beautiful cactus surprise!

I really enjoyed the gorgeous watercolour paintings.

And of course, wordless picture books are perfect for the classroom where you can create your own text in a shared writing format.

Brief Synopsis (from the book jacket)Miss Fox is tired of hearing her young students quarrel. So she announces Peace Week -- no more squabbling for one whole week! Soon, to their surprise, the little animals are finding that it's easy to help others, take turns, and say nice things, even when someone is grumpy to them.

Why I Recommend This Book
: Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class is one of those books that's perfect to read throughout the school year to gently remind your students about the importance of cooperating. Also, I was really surprised at how enthusiastically my own students responded to the book (see below).
