Hello, everyone! Happy Fall!
I don't know about you, but Fall is by FAR my favorite season. Growing up in Florida, I never really experienced seasons, and felt quite envious of people who did. When I moved to Chicago four years ago, I knew that this would be the best season yet.

In my store, I have a full year of these prompts for 5th-7th grade! Check them out here. However, to thank you for stopping by, I want to offer you a freebie!
