I LOVE Halloween! It is my absolute favorite holiday. That is an old picture from Halloween where I was dressed as a chef and my daughter as a lobster. I love dressing up in costumes. I love the decorations. I just love it.
It was also a lot of fun to celebrate it in my classroom. I would decorate my room and surprise the kids with hanging skeletons and scary spiders. However, time in the classroom is very limited (duh) so I had to find a way to celebrate Halloween while making it educational. My solution? Halloween printables! This way, I could keep up with our learning but have it Halloween themed.
My graphic design skills have (hopefully) improved since I first started teaching so I will spare you blurry pictures of boring worksheets. I revamped what I had my kids do to make it more visually appealing.
Now if you are not addicted to clipart and fonts like I am, then you can just pull out a blank piece of paper and get the same effect!
Here are some of my favorites:
Can I just say death to rounding? Yikes! Some kids picked it up liked it was candy. With others, it was like that time I had a C-section and the drugs wore off too soon. PAINFUL! This activity was another way to get my kiddos to round.
This maze is intense! The kids have to really pay attention and know their multiples to solve this correctly.
I compiled all of these (and more) into one easy to use packet if you are interested. It's 100 pages of awesome!
I also had a request to make a version for grades 1-2 so here you go!
