~*Ultimate Fall/Halloween ELA and Math Packet*~
This Halloween/Fall packet is jam packed with over 80 pages of Common Core related ELA and Math activities. This packet contains four lesson plans (2 ELA and 2 Math), ELA center games, math center games, and writing prompts. Below is a detailed description of all components:
1.) Lesson Plan #1: This lesson uses the story The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything (book not provided) by Linda Williams. This packet includes story cards that students use to sequence the story after listening to it. After, there is an assessment activity in which they sequence the story on a candy corn handout.
2.) Lesson Plan #2: This lesson uses the story Big Pumpkin (book not provided) by Erica Silverman. This packet includes a handout for students to complete in which they sequence the story events on a sentence strip. The sentence strip can be stapled as a hat afterwards.
3.) Lesson Plan #3: Spook-O numbers to 20 is a Bingo game in which the students identify the numbers to 20. They can place counters, cubes, or candy on the cards until all the numbers to 20 (provided on candy corn number cards) are called out by the teacher. This packet includes 3 variations in which everyone is a winner!
4.) Lesson Plan #4: Numbers to 20 Pumpkin Patch is a handout in which the students must trace (or write on their own) the numbers to 20. The students then cut out the pumpkins and order them on another handout, "My Tricky Teen Pumpkin Patch."
5.) Beginning Sound Sort Game- This game includes bag cutouts featuring the alphabet letters. Also included are candy pieces with pictures. Students sort the pictures by placing them on the correct bag.
6.) Witchy Alphabet Match- Students match the uppercase witch to the lowercase broom.
7.) Spooky Write the Room- Halloween words are placed around the room by the teacher. During centers, students "write the room" by writing down the word on the packet handout titled, "Write the Room" in which they write the word by the picture of the character.
8.) Ghost Number Sequencing- Students place the ghost pictures with the numbers to 20 in order.
9.) Halloween Patterns- Students complete Halloween patterns by placing the missing piece on the pattern card (AB, ABC, AABB).
10.) Candy Corn Number Matching: Students match the bottom of the candy corn (numeral) to the top (pictures).
This packet includes 3 writing prompts.
11.) "My Pumpkin Writing Prompt"- This prompt allows students to fill in the blank about their pumpkin.
12.) "My Witches Brew Recipe"- This prompt inclues two parts, one prompt in which the students list the ingredients that they would have in their witches brew and the second in which they list the steps needed to "cook" their brew.
13.) "My Halloween Costume"- The students write about their Halloween costume.
14.) This packet includes two blank pieces of writing paper with handwriting lines for you to use for whatever Halloween writing prompt you wish!
