BOO...It's Getting SPOOKY in Second

Truth be told:  I LOVE HALLOWEEN!  I don't like horror movies or real haunted houses, but I do love pumpkins, bats, and spiders, OH MY!  With Parent Teacher Conference Week starting at my school next week, it's a PERFECT time for putting some Halloween-y projects out in the hall!  Look what my owlets have been up to this week!

MATH:  We are working on representing numbers in a variety of ways!  I loved the look of the Silly Spiders from Doodle Bugs Teaching but needed a way to make it standards based for my class.  So, my kids got caught up in a web of number representation!  How cute are these creepy crawlies?

WRITING:  We've been working on writing a variety of fiction!  We took some creative liberties and wrote Scarecrow Stories and created these adorable scarecrows (on paint sticks), to go along with the stories we've been publishing.  The lesson plans & craftivity should be up in my TPT store this weekend! 

We also read a book of Autumn Acrostic Poems and wrote our own October Acrostics!  Our Acrostic Pumpkin Patch is weaving it's way through our hallways!

CHARACTER PUMPKIN PROJECTSLast but not least, our grade level started the tradition of completing the Character Pumpkin Book Report projects a few years ago, to coincide with our Character Unit in Reading Workshop this time of year!  How cute are the projects that are coming into class?

What's your favorite FALL/HALLOWEEN project to do with your class?  Leave a comment to share!

Hootfully yours,
