Throwback Thursday Halloween Special

Joining in with Throwback fun over at:

I am so glad I did because I had forgotten the Halloween special linky she is hosting.  I am linking my new freebie there as well as at the bottom of this post!

Lots of Halloween hi-jinks was to be had all through last week so press on each of the buttons below to take you back for some useful and fun freebies.

The traditional scary pumpkin was featured in my clip art freebie on Monday to celebrate my 
half century of followers on TpT!

Magic Hat pattern solving was the freebie packet offered on Tuesday.

I also decided to join in the linky clip art fun going on last week over with Mel at Graphics from the Pond and contributed my first clip art package through TpT - I was a bit nervous but the feedback shows everything works correctly so that's a big relief!!

And now for my latest freebie - I would like to offer you something made using the above clip art to support basic literacy skills - in particular the Common Core standard

Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words
You can choose to leave these as work sheets or if printed off on to card and cut out they can be used with pegs for the children to put two pegs on the pumpkin vowels that make the words or punch a hole beneath each pumpkin and two holes in the central missing vowel square and the children use laces to select the correct vowel pumpkins (this is good for those children improving their threading skills).
Click on the button below to download :)

As per usual, I would value all feedback on how you aim to use this resource, any improvements you think I should make, whether it would be better in colour (I was thinking of conserving ink when I made this one in B&W!!) - just let me know in the comments below.  Many thanks :)
