As much as I LOVE Halloween, let’s face it...it is always a hectic and exhausting day! I love that my kiddos wear costumes and this year I am using this to my teaching advantage!
I have created six activities that you can do on the actual day of Halloween (October 31st) using costumes in most of the activities.
I try to keep structure by including one or two academic activities for them to do to keep them engaged and on task right up until they leave for the day!
I believe you will find the ideas and activities in this packet to be relevant and engaging! I also included an objective for each activity to support academic skills and accountability. Last I added a few quick energizers or movement activities that I do every year to help with classroom management! Good luck!
Included in this activity set:
1 teacher and 1 student “Class Costume Tally Chart”
1 student “Costume Graphing Chart”
1 Spooky Sight Word Hunt student board/ 1 set of sight words to copy and 1 sight word sentence writing worksheet. Sight words used: look, there, he, go, them, there, was, soon, who, first, put, they, use, down, over, all, her
1 My Halloween Costume Portrait worksheet, 1 Graphic Organizer to plan using details and matching writing prompt and paper
1 Trick or Treat Alphabetical Order student worksheet to write the words in ABC order and an option for students to have their own set of words that they could manipulate to put into ABC order as well to offer this as an extension activity or to use in a small group.
1 Halloween Reflection worksheet to use as a sharing activity
Plus a list of ideas to use for brain breaks throughout the day
