October Vocabulary & Spelling with Circle Letters

This circle letter resource is designed to give younger students the ability to see a word and then spell it using circle letter manipulatives. This resource can be used to reinforce letter learning, letter sounds, formation of words and much more.

With an October-theme, students will love creating / forming words that are related to Halloween such as bat, web, pumpkin, squash, candy, spider, cat, leaf and house. You will receive two copies of each word mat (color and b/w).

You can use for whole class instruction, small group interactions or in centers.

Here are 2 examples of variation of use:
#1 For whole class instruction, make transparencies using the colored word mats. Give students prepared circle letters (instructions included) and the b/w word mats. As you display each transparency, students can follow along and spell each word on their word mat using their circle letters.

#2 For centers, laminate and attach each colored word mat to a metal backing (such as a small cookie sheet). Laminate and cut out the circle letters and attach a magnet on the back of each. Students can then use the circle letters to spell each word on the metal backed word mat! FUN!!

Want to teach additional October-themed vocabulary words? Simple! Just make a list, and as you teach each word, have students use their circle letters at the desks to spell each word!

You can get this resource in my TPT store HERE!

Using Positive Affirmations to create a Growth Mindset in students

We all have a ‘little voice in our head’ that is continually telling us something about our abilities, our character, our strengths and our value in this world. Is your little voice a positive voice or is it more negative?

Every student that walks inside a classroom has that same ‘little voice’ too. It’s been created through their life experiences and what has been said to them by parents, friends, and teachers.

If students do not believe in themselves, their abilities to learn, create, explore and communicate will be vastly limited!

That is why research shows that creating a positive growth mindset in students – a ‘can do’, ‘never stop’, ‘I can’ attitude – is so important. One fantastic way to do this is to purposefully teach students positive, personal affirmations….and that is why I’ve created the complete set of resources to do just that!

Bundle #3 is a resource that contains all products to help you drive home positive,
self-affirmations in your students.

I’ve created several resources and bundled them so that you, as a parent or educator, can make the most impact in a child’s life and save money purchasing everything in this one bundle!

In this bundle, you’ll find classroom posters, a coloring book, bookmarks and a journal (differentiated for use with PreK-2nd Grade)…

Product #1: Positive Affirmation Posters for Growth Mindset
This resource includes 20 colorful, student-centered, self-affirming quotes. Use throughout your classroom or display one at a time (one week at a time) as you teach and reinforce each affirmation.

Product #2: Positive Affirmations Coloring Book
This resource exactly mirrors the posters (product #1) and students will love coloring each page.

Product #3: Positive Affirmation Bookmarks
This resource includes 3 sets of bookmarks that exactly aligns with the products above.
* Set 1: B/W for students to color.
* Set 2: Full-Color
* Set 3: Color illustrations with B/W font.

Product #4: Self-Affirmations Journal – Differentiated
This resource includes 3 levels of journal pages for each affirmation.

  1. Level 1: Students print over dotted-lined words and draw a picture
  2. Level 2: Students write the affirmation plus answer 2 questions on provided lines (with dotted middle line).
  3. Level 3: Students write the affirmation plus answer 2 questions on single lines.

The affirmations are simple and straight to the point…Perfect for use with younger students!

The affirmations included:
1. I believe in myself.
2. I am important.
3. I am unique.
4. I have a good mind.
5. I can do anything I decide to do.
6. I have a lot to give.
7. I can learn new things.
8. I am a hard worker.
9. I will always keep trying.
