Halloween Goodies

Well this is the official weekend before Halloween and I am getting last minute goodies ready for my class.

My colleague made the cutest mosaic pumpkins this week and I just had to do it with my class.  But I changed it up a bit and had them use different colors.  I think they came out really cute.

  On Halloween we  have our parade first thing and then we get on with the day.  I have some fun reading activities planned and then a group writing activity.  For math I plan to have a graphing activity with these fun little rice crackers I found.  Do you have these on the mainland or is this a Hawaiian/Japanese item?? 

There are pumpkins, bats, bones and ghosts in the package.  It will be fun to see their results.
After lunch we are going to be making fun little pudding cups.

Ours will have some worms and a gravestone out of a graham cracker as well:)

I also plan to give them a Halloween pencil, but I will spice it up a bit with these cute tags I made.

Just click on the pic and you can grab them in Google Docs if you want them:)

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

Halloween is a crazy day especially on a Wednesday, but I really enjoy it. The kids are so excited and it's nice to take a break from your regular curriculum.  

This year I plan to be Medusa.  I found a simple black dress at Goodwill and I made a headband with pipe cleaner snakes.  My daughters costumes are their own creations this year, I didn't really have to do much. I'm a little sad because I have always made their costumes since they were babies.  It's one of my favorite things to do.  Here are a few pics of our costumes over the years.

Last year I wanted to be the Mermaid Family, but my oldest wouldn't go for it she wanted to be a jellyfish!! We got so many compliments on her costume I couldn't believe it!!

Do you dress up for Halloween at your school??  I would love to know what you plan to be this year!
My friend Sarah over at Kindergarten Korner is having a fun costume linky. Head over and link up:)

  8. We have orange and black day, no costumes.....the older students have fun activities planned for the morning and we will have a little class party with treats. We are feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy, it has been raining for days....indoor recess, hurray! Love your costumes over the years. I used to sew too but the main criteria used to be "could it fit over a winter coat ?".....no mermaids here :)

    1. Ahhh, I grew up in Colorado and I hated putting on a big coat over my costume!!! Have fun and I hope the weather isn't too bad for you!

  9. I just came across your blog through Sara's giveaway over at Miss V's Busy Bees. By the way, I like your name. ;0)


  10. Hi Corinna, Love the pumpkins. I will "steal" your idea and have some fun one of these days :). In our school we have the kindergarten students do a parade of costumes. In past years first grade students dressed up as their favorite character in a book. Teachers in first grade grade would also dress up.

  11. Thanks for the pencil tags freebie! They are super cute!!!
