Happy Halloween! A dollar off for a limited time.
Do you read “Room on the Broom” by Julia Donaldson? It’s one of my students’ favorite Halloween stories.
With that in mind, I thought I’d design an activity to go along with this cute tale.
“There’s Room On My Broom” is a quick, easy & super-fun booklet craftivity.
As always, there are black & white patterns for students, as well as colorful templates so that teachers can quickly and easily make a sample to share.
There are 2 pattern options for the second page of the “booklet”.
Students can simply color the broom, or teachers can opt to make this a bit of a keepsake, by either painting a child’s hand brown, then pressing it on the broom handle; or having students pick a partner, taking turns tracing each others hand, on a piece of broom-colored construction paper, then cutting it out and gluing it on the end of the broom handle.
You decide what’s best for your students & the time you have available, then run off a class-set of the patterns. Easy "Print & Go!"
There are 20 animals for children to choose from.
To save paper & printing time, I designed the of the worksheet as the “booklet” portion of the pattern, while the part - - with animal choices, is snipped off.
Children color, cut & glue, whatever animals they want to ride on their broom.
Whenever I’m doing an activity, I always try to think of what else I might be able to include in the lesson, that will easily practice additional standards.
So besides the broom booklet, I’ve also included several graphing extensions, plus a “Greater Than/ Less Than” worksheet, where students compare their “loaded brooms” with 4 other classmates' brooms.
There’s also an ABC order worksheet, as well as a “spatial directions” activity, which will help you quickly & easily whole group assess this standard. If your students are like mine, they will really enjoy this extension.
Before students glue their animals to their broom, they can also sort & sequence them according to size (smallest to largest or the reverse), which allows you to practice this standard as well. Students could also use ordinal numbers to label their animal riders.
Be sure and check the PREVIEW to see lots of samples.
Completed projects make a cute bulletin board, so I’ve also included 2 posters to add some extra pizzazz to your display.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled time making room on your classroom broom.
