Here's the plan...
Art/Crafts - I have decided to use one of two following art/craft project ideas to kick things off the first day back. They both are inspired by the cute clip art out there and I love them.
Isn't this cute?! You lift the cauldron and place one of a variety of options under it. I would have my class write about what they think should go into her brew. Could be funny!
OR2. Art Projects For Kids Funny Witch Feet
This is done with oil pastels and watercolors. I love the hanging spider and the fact that it's a guided drawing, which means students have freedom to be artistic.
Not sure which one to do yet. Hmmm...
Math - I am going to incorporate Kathy Law's Add with the Cat addition games and Hope King's Spooktacular Halloween Math Centers into my math center time, which I do four afternoons each week. Each activity will go inside one of my Pinterest inspired math bins. I'll post more about that another day!
Language Arts - My class is going to have fun during Daily 5!
Work on Writing - I will prep and set out Robin Sellers' Halloween Trick or Treat Story Starters. Have you seen these? They are so great! Simply attach the story starters to pencils and place them at your center/station area so students can grab one and start writing away...
Listen to Reading - I have lots of Fall books for my students to listen to, but my favorite is I Need My Monster. If you haven't read this one, you MUST get it! It's so funny and we create our own pet monsters complete with a pet monster manual. More info. and pictures to come!
What are your favorite October projects?
