PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Happy Halloween! Thank you for stopping by! =)

Let your students have a little Halloween fun with this holiday Magic Square! Students will match the picture to the correct word. There is one 3x3 puzzle for K/1st/2nd graders and a 4x4 puzzle for 3rd/4th/5th graders. Please choose the puzzle that you feel will work best for your students. (This puzzle is a little easy for my 6th graders, but they still enjoy completing it.)

The letters around the outside of each Magic Square say the words Happy Halloween.

Preparation and Storage: You will need to print off the number of copies you need. For Halloween I would use these at centers during the week, as an individual activity on party day, or as a fun partner activity. Cut the magic squares out and put them into plastic baggies for students’ use. I put each set in its own plastic baggie. Then I put all of these baggies and one original sheet in a manila envelope with the name of the activity on the front. This way I have the answer key and all materials readily available.
 
Directions to Play: Give students the cut-up magic square sheet. Tell them they need to put the square back together. The first time you have the students complete one of these, I suggest drawing out a 3x3 or 4x4 square (depending on which puzzle you use) on the board so they understand what it should look like. You can also give them the hint (because I have found some do not figure this out!) that the graphics will all be facing the correct direction.
 
Correcting Student Work: To easily check a student’s completed work, keep an original copy of the magic square sheet they are working on. This way you can immediately check to see if the graphics are in the correct order or not.

Thanks for looking!

Awesome. I've tried this type of activity with addition sentences matching it with the sum but my 2nd graders just didn't get it and they got frustrated. I think I could use this activity to help them understand the concept better then reintroduce the other ones. Thanks!

On  October 30, 2012Beck Mowat (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Hojo:
I really like your lesson plans!
I am wondering what software you are using.
Is it Print Shop? I teach grades 1-6 (substituting now that I am retired). I am also taking a EAL course to teach overseas. I would love to know what software I can use that has the same cute graphics as you use to create your lesson plans. Thanks alot HoJo
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 30, 2012HoJo answered:
I currently use either PowerPoint or Word to make the Magic Squares. I've also created some products in Excel in the past, but I don't do that as often anymore. Many of the graphics I buy right here on TpT! We have some fabulous artists with a lot of talent. :) Just do a search for clipart (or whatever specific artwork you are looking for) and you should find what you want. If not - head to the forums. There is an entire board dedicated to clipart/copyright and you can request items be made there. Best of luck to you here on TpT!
