These halloween / fall school activities will have your students engaged and having fun all season!  I have you covered for teaching just about every content area!  Candy corn, a free printable, and a few ideas are all you need to get through this season!  #elementaryisland #halloween #free


Pumpkins, skeletons, candy corn, ghosts, and haunted houses......you know what that means!  Fall is here and my FAVORITE holiday that comes with it......HALLOWEEN!  

Although the holiday is around that haunted house corner, curriculum still looms near us like that creepy ghost! Bwahahaha!!!!

In an effort to get the kids excited for the season but still focus on our skills, I have incorporated a few "fun" activities into my plans the weeks leading up to Halloween and after.  I've got you covered for spelling, math, science and everything in between!

This activity is great for ANY (and I do mean ANY) part of your curriculum!  I am amazed at what rolling a paper up and securing it with a ring spider can do!!!!! Roll up those questions in any content area, secure, and you have INSTANT engagement!  I chose some review task cards for my scrolls and it was a HUGE hit!

I've incorporated some holiday themed spelling papers into my word work stations to keep the fun going!  Students work meticulously on practicing their spelling words for the week because..... don't you know it's FUN to write your spelling words in spider legs?? ;)

Of course I saved the BEST for last! STEM!  My oh my, do my students L-O-V-E STEM!  I love it too, but it has to serve a purpose.  These activities, available for fall or Halloween, will have your students 100% participating and creating!  Students are asked to research, design to meet a challenge, test the challenge, record their information and reflect on the outcomes!   All of them, EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM, will be BEGGING for more STEM! 
I promise!
