Halloween

Before you know it Halloween will be here! October always seems to have some of the cutest activities.  There are spiders, scare crows, pumpkins and so much more!! One of my favorite bulletin boards in October is the student's pumpkin glyphs.  I don't give them any patterns so they have to cut everything out on their own, which makes it even that much cuter! I don't have a picture of the bulletin board, but here is the glyph we do:

Another fun activity that I am looking forward to is our Monster Symmetry.  It is very simple to do with the kids and they absolutely love to see how their monster turns out.  All you need to do is fold a white piece of paper in half and open it up.  Let the students squirt some paint onto one side of the paper.  Then help them fold it again and press down (squishing the paint to both sides).  Open it up and wa la, you have a monster!


Enjoy!
