October Math The KFUN Way:
|Give each student a plain black cat and 20 cents.|
Set up a store with craft supplies where they can "buy" the parts
to decorate their cats. No two cats will look alike!
|Here is another shopping activity.|
Give each chile a green square face and 10 cents.
They buy the pieces to create their own monster.
|Use a slice of a pool noodle to create these 5 Little Pumpkins and teach ordinal numbers.|
Halloween Sight Word FUN:
Practicing color sight words has never been so much fun and your students can make an easy reading book to take home and share with their families.
|This is a color version of the black line book cover.|
I usually complete one page a day with my students in a whole group setting. The book contains 9 pages plus the cover, so we complete it over two weeks, but you can also complete several pages at one time in a small group setting.
|Here are the directions.|
One the first page, the students copy the sight word "Black" and color the cat black.
On the next page, they copy the sight word "Orange" and color the pumpkins orange.
This is my favorite page: I see a green monster looking at me!
They continue in this manner until all of the characters end up at a Halloween party.

Have You Seen My Pocket Lockets?
My students beg to make these each week. They can make a sight word pocket watch or a sight word locket. This is how:
First, they trace the letters and numbers.
Next, they cut out the pocket-locket.
Then, they cut out the individual letters of the sight word.
Next, they glue on the letters on in the correct order.
Last, they add a piece of yarn.
They can wear it in their pockets as a pocket watch or around their necks as a locket.
|This set contains 18 sight words plus a blank|
pocket-locket so you can add more sight words.
