Fall Freebies

September 21, 2014

I can't believe that Fall will be arriving this week.  This year has FLOWN by.  It blows my mind that we are almost three months into the school year.  Wow.   Anyhow, here is a FREE packet containing resources for any Fall/Autumn Unit.  I hope some of you might be able to use these ideas with your kiddos this week!

Greater Than, Less Than, Equal To Lesson
