Now before I get too ahead of myself (unlike many stores and restaurants...I'm looking at you Hobby Lobby and Cracker Barrel!), I'll keep this post on the topic of Halloween.
I haven't always been able to legally do anything Halloween related, so, instead, I have celebrated Pumpkin Day in my classroom. I ask parents to donate pumpkins and pumpkin foods to our class, and I set up cross-curricular stations incorporating them. Students spend part of the day learning about math, reading, writing, and science using pumpkins. It's a fun and easy way to incorporate the season into the curriculum.
Another fun activity I have done around Halloween is to create these Ghost Window Clings:
What fun activities do you do in your classroom during the month of October? I'd love to hear your ideas!
