I've created the perfect thing to celebrate Halloween and study important Common Core skills at the same time! Take a look at this Interactive Haunted House Activity Packet! It can be used in an Interactive Notebook or alone, posted on construction paper.
Here's the beauty of this craftivity... I've made it simple for you by including 10 activity pages to go along with the haunted house. Here's how it works:
~There are 12 "openings" on the haunted house, ready for a flap book to be glued on the top. The top of the door has a message that reads, "Lift at Your Own Risk!"
~Once you have the flap glued onto the openings, you can put anything on top and underneath.
For example, I've included 5 math and 5 literacy activity sheets with flaps already premade! The topics include:
~addition facts to 10
~addition facts to 20
~doubles addition facts
~doubles and doubles+1 facts
~differences from 20
~Pre-Primer Sight Words...Students must fill in the missing vowel by writing the entire word underneath the flap.
~1st Grade Sight Words
~CVC Words... There are pictures on the top flaps and students must write the word underneath.
~Syllables... Festive Halloween objects are pictured. Students write the number of syllables for the picture word.
~Rhyming Words... There are pictures on top of the flaps. Students must think of a rhyming word for the picture.
AND...I've even included 2 BONUS printables! One is a printable with all information included (name, directions, etc.) except the flaps are blank. So you can have the students literally use these for any subject! They'd be perfect for multiplication facts, spelling words, anything you can think of! And lastly, I've included a printable with just the blank flaps so you can have the students make their own printable.
There are two haunted houses included: a full color copy (perfect for using as an example craftivity: saves you time coloring in!) and a black and white house. So there are a total of 14 printables in this activity packet!
What a fun way to practice any skill around the Halloween season! These would make an awesome interactive bulletin board; especially for parent-teacher conferences. You could hang these in the hallway and keep the families busy while they're waiting for their conference with you. Perfect time for the parents to see exactly what their child knows and doesn't know.
