Flipping for Fall

Welcome to this fabulous BLOG HOP and GIVEAWAY brought to you by several literacy loving bloggers! As you hop through the blogs, collect the awesome fall mentor texts FREEBIES, as well as mystery words (the orange word in each post) My mystery word is monsters. At the end of the hop, enter all of the mystery words into the rafflecopter for your chance to win all of these fall mentor texts! My post is part of the K-2 hop, but there is also a 3-5 hop. 
Both hops start HERE.
I love, love, love October! During the month of October we go a little monster crazy. We have a monster watching over our classroom, we collect monster (ClassDojo) points for expected behavior and many of our lessons and crafts center around monsters. One of my favorite monster books is 
Monsters Love School by Mike Austin.
There are so many ways you can use this book, but I am planning on using it to motivate my little monsters that need to practice letter and sound identification. We have finally arrived at that magical time of the year when I have started guided reading groups while everyone is working independently. Hallelujah! Just like Blue in the story, it is time for some of my cute little monsters 
to practice, practice, practice their ABCs and XYZs.
This FREE find and trace activity will foster that learning.
Thanks for hopping over to my blog!
