Word Work Freebie and Yummy Pinterest

Here's a quick kinda random freebie for word work.  Knowing that my peeps need lots of practice writing their sight words and practicing nice, complete, 4th grade sentences, I made this.  It looks a little nutty which my kids love.  It's also very simple....I know...but it works!  It's called Sight Word Zigs.  On the first zig zag they choose a sight word and write it over and over until their zig zag is full.  On the zag underneath that they are to write a complete sentence using that word.  I am also going to use this for their vocabulary words pretty much the same way, so they're practicing lots of things at once.

I also had to rave about this recipe I found on Pinterest....where else?!  It is 2, yes 2 ingredients.  1 can of pumpkin and 1 box of white cake mix.  I have to admit, I thought this is too good to be true.  Well, let me tell you.........YUM!!!!!!  I just made a batch.  It's super easy and quick and oh so delicious!!  Super moist, yummy and not super pumpkiny (is that a word?!  If so, I know I didn't spell it right)  My husband and son are not pumpkin fans and they love these!!  The recipe is here at  Sweet Verbena

I also added some cream cheese frosting!!!  YUMMIER!!!!
