After School Linky (10/7)

Welcome to the After School Linky!

Last week's party was chock full of ideas, activities, and crafts sure to inspire -
many of which are great ways to learn and create to celebrate autumn.

Here are some of my favorite activities from the September 30th linky.

Free Spelling Game for Fall at The Measured Mom.
(Anna has done it again, providing a fun and engaging way to learn while playing. Kids might actually look forward to spelling practice with this printable board game!)

Air Pressure Experiment for Kids at Kids Activities Blog.
(This is a great way to help kids see the force of air as it moves objects!)

(Talk about a great STEM activity! Kids will love making a water wheel out of some plates, egg carton, skewer, and LEGOs!)

Halloween Science Experiments at Science Sparks.
(Turn the Halloween holiday into a hands-on learning opportunity with five creepy experiments!)

(This is SUCH a wonderful extension to one of the phenomenal Magic Tree House books. I think ghost writing might be my favorite ... although the Raisin Raven is pretty awesome too!)

(Sharon lists five favorite books to read aloud with kids, even when they're old enough to read to themselves. This is a GREAT list!)

(What a great fall-inspired way to work on syllables!)
