Whew! What a crazy week. It was red ribbon week, which meant the kids dressed up everyday and I needed to decorate my door, and we also celebrated Halloween on Friday at school. It's much better to end the week crazy than to begin it that way!
I snatched my Frankenstein door idea off of pininterest. I decided to have my kids make small Frankensteins to go around the sides of the door. Oh accompanying sign said, "Frankly, We are Drug Free!" I gave my kids a shape template to trace their Frankenstein head with. We used rectangles, triangles, pentagons, hexagons, trapezoids, and parallelograms. I quickly realized my kids do not know these shapes! I'm sensing some shape turkeys in our near future. :)
