Halloween Activities

Are you ready for Halloween yet?  It's just around the corner.  Check out a few neat ideas for Halloween crafts and activities:

  • Monster Yard Lights are cool art projects to work on after reading a spooky story starring monsters.  Using little more than paint and a milk jug, you can help students design monsters that they can use for Halloween decorations.  Stick them around the room for fun, or allow them to mount them on sticks to make glow-in-the-dark yard lights.
  • LewisLearningLibrary allowed her class to do several fun Halloween activities, including analyzing a story in invisible ink and learning some cool things about bats through crafts.  Students learned everything from how many bugs bats can eat in an hour to how long their wingspan is.
  • Play Ghost Blasters, an online game where you blast the ghosts that contain multiples of a chosen number.  It's a good way for students to practice their multiplication.
  • Make cute little spider web snacks as a treat for students. 

And here is a list of some read-alouds you may consider for Halloween:
