My school is participating in the TIME Collaborative. It's a process to find ways to make your school run more efficiently so you maximize your instructional time. It's all about working smarter not harder. So...they are sending our team to Boston to visit schools who have been through the process. So I am off to Boston for four days!!!
But I wanted to share some Halloween ideas that you might use in your classroom!
Read Go Away Big Green Monster. Give students a white piece of construction paper. Squirt paint in the middle. Squick. Add eyes, nose and a mouth. Students can write about their monster!
Paint 2 paper plates black. Cut one plate in half to make wings. Glue or staple on the wings. Add eyes.
Give each student a pumpkin. Allow them to clean out the pumpkin. Fill with potting soil. Add a flower!
Feet painting! Candy Corn and ghosts!
Some super fun science experiments!

Make predictions about what will happen when you put the egg in vinegar. Place egg in vinegar on day one. On day 2 examine the egg and place in food coloring. Remove. MONSTER EYES!
