Halloween is coming up and if you're anything like me, then you're thinking. . .'How can I make Halloween fun for my students without sacrificing an academic day?'
I am here with some ideas. These are tried and true ideas that my students love year after year.
This is an activity that you can start anytime in October or really anytime of the year! Students will write a narrative piece that is a mystery. It is so much fun for them to be creative and write something spooky and mysterious!
This is for students to practice multiplication at their own level without even realizing it! There are four levels of multiplication problems (for 4th or 5th grade) for your students. Problems range from one-digit x one-digit to three-digit x two-digit. Pick one level for each student to complete. The answer pages are all similar so students do not even realize they are completing work at different levels.
This book, which you can find here is a student favorite year after year. I read the book to my students then have them pick one picture and write a story about it. Click here to read more about this activity!
This resource is for Google Slides and can be completed during reading time or social studies. Students will read kid-friendly articles and watch a video to learn about the history of Halloween. Then, they will answer comprehension questions and complete optional activities.
