Looking for a fun way to engage students in making predictions?! The Candy Corn Bandit was designed as a high-interest activity to support making predictions for students in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. It is not Halloween-specific, so it can be used during the fall months in many classroom settings.

DID YOU KNOW?! The Candy Corn Bandit is included in the MONEY-SAVING October Fun Pack bundle!

In this lesson, you will take your class on a hunt to find a missing treat in the classroom, library, lunchroom (or wherever your students eat), gym, and playground, all the while encouraging your students to predict what the Candy Corn Bandit looks like, where he might've taken your treat, and where you might find the next clue. This resource also includes extensions for sequencing, ordinal numbers, how-to writing, a directed drawing, a WANTED poster writing activity, The Candy Corn Bandit craft, a questioning writing prompt, and writing pages to use as you wish.

What's included:

  • Suggested lesson plan
  • Prediction definition poster
  • Candy Corn Bandit Mini Activity Book
  • Note from the Candy Corn Bandit
  • Discussion Questions
