I've been using my Halloween pack for years! I pretty much do every activity in the pack (and this is not the case with all of my packs). It goes great with the Common Core!
In this unit you will get:
5 Art ideas
Paper Plate Spider
Paper Plate Scarecrow
Hand Print Spider
Spider Web Chart
Don't Munch the Mummy!
Green Witch, Green Witch book
I am also going to be subbing (that's the great thing about year-round, you can sub when you're off track and make some extra money) on the day after Halloween and I want to do this with the class!
This will be a quick, fun drawing activity. Then, we'll share our pages in small groups because you know your students are dying to talk about what they did the night before.
I just wanted to quickly share my behavior management tip that I posted about last year!
During the day, if a student is following the rules and expectations,
they will get the pumpkin on their desk.
I move the pumpkin all around on different students' desks all day. If you are working nicely, you'll probably see the pumpkin once, maybe even twice on your desk! You can't play with him or touch him, but if you are the very last person to have the pumpkin on your desk at the end of the day..... YOU GET THE "PUMPKIN PRESENT" that is inside of the pumpkin! I like to put pencils, or stickers, or maybe silly bands! *If you have lots of kiddos in your class...send around 2 pumpkins!
Check back this week for non-Halloween,
but super fun October ideas!!!!!
