a couple of other October ideas...
Use with Bob Barner's book Dem Bones (I am sorry, but I do not know where this idea came from)
From The First Grade Parade
Based on the book Skeleton Hiccups
From Life in First Grade
The Night Before Halloween would be a fun read aloud to go with this activity.
More of Frank from Artsy T's
Hap Palmer's Witches Brew- My all time favorite Hap Palmer song!! We make a circle like a big cauldron. We sing the song and pretend to add all the items to the pot as we sing.
Based on the book Where's My Mummy
Costume Parade - A fun class book that I always make after Halloween. This idea came from Shari Sloane. Students bring in pictures of themselves in their costumes after Halloween. I add pages as pictures come in.
Halloween Book Countdown from Brown Paper Packages - 31 spooky Halloween picture books to read aloud to your class everyday throughout the month of October
From A Place Called Kindergarten and based on the book Pumpkin Heads
Pumpkin Brace Maps (These are from my students)
Based on Miss Spider's Tea Party (also from my class)
From Jessica Nieves at Florence Hill. Brace maps based on the book The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
From Amanda Borowczak - Flow map based on the book Pumpkin Cat
Bat Measurement. This picture came from my class, but the idea came from Kim Jordano.
