Halloween season is among us! Honestly, we don’t spend TOO much time on this holiday in the classroom, but I find the best way to get this seasonal fun in is through centers!
Here are a few of the fun things we do the few days leading up to Halloween:
Trick or treat math sort!
A little how to writing!
We read some fun Halloween facts and record our thinking afterwards!
This simple strategy game has students working to remove 1 or 2 q-tips at a time. They start with 10 “bones” and try to be the last player to remove a bone from the skeleton. Students are subtracting and they don’t even know it!
This riddle is a classic and we love to hang them on a bulletin board! Students brainstorm facts about themselves and draw themselves under a decorated mask. We try to guess who each classmate is!
