How to Survive Halloween Week

Sunday, October 23, 2016

First:  Get a sub all week!  Totally kidding
I am a fan of Halloween and love any excuse to get dressed up.  But Halloween on a Monday c'mon are you serious!?!?!  That just doesn't sound like the best way for a teacher to start his/her week.
So I have some fun, engaging activities and ideas that you can try out this week to hopefully make it flow much easier and make it more memorable for your students.
If you teach K or 1 maybe even 2 it's a great time to review rhyming words and word families.  I like to use my 

This includes a center too with several rhyming word cards.  It could even be used as a rotation at a Halloween Party so that you make it educational.

This freebie has lots of options that can easily be included during rotations during a classroom party or just at different times during the week, maybe seat work or math center time even. Get it here!

This is always a great visual for kids when working on adjectives.  Another idea ~ buy a pumpkin and write adjectives on it.  Have your students sit in a circle and touch it feel it etc., then you can write those adjectives on the pumpkin. Get it here!

Need behavior help this week...who doesn't?!?!  Here's a fun way to keep them focused!

Here's some ideas for math activities this week :  Free as well!  Grab it here!

Here are a few more Halloween packs that will make your week fun you can grab in my store here:

Grab the craftivity here  or the counting/color book here

Have your class make a Halloween bunting ( get it here )  to decorate the room!

Well good luck my teacher least there's not a full moon too.  I hope I've given you lots of options to make your week extra special with your sweet little monsters. xoxo,
