Halloween Week

I scoured blogs and found some fun stuff for my Kindergarteners.  We started out with a Frankenstein hat, idea from Cara Carroll.  I had them draw their own Frankenstein.  I did a little tutorial, and I love how they turned out!  They glued their numbers (counting by 10's) on a sentence strip and had a hat to wear all day!

We also made Cara's Frankenfold freebie.  I read

We then discussed the beginning, middle, end.

In our Art center, they made super-easy monsters.  I had students paint plates in the past.  This year, I bought colored paper plates.  Creating this is super-easy- you just make various sizes of features. =)  They are welcome to mix and match.

A teacher down the hall made these mummies.  She used manilla paper as the wrappings, but I'm super-cheap, so I used paper towels that are "free" in my classroom.  After reading
they wrote how their mummy comforts them.
I make Memory Books for my students, so I trimmed this one down to be 8.5x11".  I believe it will be quite the keepsake.

On Thursday, the children all helped me scoop out the inside of a pumpkin.  Everyone gave me a great, disgusted face! =)

On Friday, we had Book Character Dress-Up Day.  They were absolutely adorable!!  We started the day with a parade.  Grades K-2 went to the gym and sat around the perimeter.  One class at a time circled the gym so everyone could enjoy the costumes.
My class also got to go to our media center for a special story.  Our media specialist sings the story to us.  It is one of my favorite activities of the year!

Our administration team always does a good job coordinating.

The Kindergarten team dressed as the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series.  We took this picture at the end of the day, and several of us were missing.
We had a birthday celebration and kept with the theme.  The snacks match the books. =)

Happy Halloween!!
