Costume Party Literacy Freebie!

Hi Friends!! Kerri here...
Thank you so much to those of you who have purchased the Costume Party Math Center and Thanksgiving Words Writing Pack on TPT! As a thank you, I have created a freebie for your lit centers using the oh-so-cute Costume Kids!
We are starting to work on identifying describing words in my classroom. To help my kiddos practice their reading skills AND look for adjectives, while at the same time experiencing the glorious cuteness of the Costumed Kids, I made this little center. Basically, the kids match the costume kid card to it's corresponding describing sentence, choose 5 of the match-ups, and write the sentences on the recording paper. For a *BONUS* (my kids love bonuses!), they can underline or circle the describing words in the sentences they wrote. Depending on how long your centers are, I added an extension activity so they could draw the 5 costumes that they chose to write about. Make sense??
If you have already purchased my Costume Party Math Center, this will be a perfect tie in for your lit centers. If you haven't bought it yet, what you waitin' for, girls?? :)

Click on the picture to download your copy of my Costume Party Match-Ups, and leave us a comment, would ya?? We heart comments!!
P.S. I'll be back tomorrow with my weekly art post, and I am working on a Thanksgiving Words Freebie to go with the Thanksgiving Words Writing Pack, to be posted soon! See ya!

Hi Stephanie,
Actually I (Kerri) made this one and I did not just have a baby. Lindsay (my blogging partner and teaching besty) just had the baby. But I am sure she would love to take credit for it! HAHA
Thanks for the sweet comment!
