October is definitely one of my most favorite times of a year to be a teacher! It is always a time filled with tons of fun learning about all kinds of creepy creatures! This unit was created to suit all your center needs throughout the month of October! I have personally used each one of these activities in my own classroom, and my students have enjoyed each and every one of them!
The activities in this unit are aligned to Common Core State Standards. In addition, each activity has a corresponding recording sheet with the standard it meets displayed on the page.
For several activities, 2 versions have been created for differentiation. You can pick and choose which version of the activity you wish to use in your classroom!
In this 115 page packet you will find:

**9 Literacy Centers:**
-Color Me Creepy! {color word identification}
