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:)
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:)
