October is finally here, and I can’t wait to share with you some of my favorite October activities that I have previously posted along with a few FREEBIES!
Trust me, I am no fan of creepy crawlers and animals of the night, but I have to admit, they sure are fun to learn about with my students! Throw in some nonfictional and fictional literature with writing and arts and craft, even the squirmiest students will definitely be caught in the learning web! 🙂
A fun activity that we do is that we start out with some nonfiction text paired with fictional stories. Afterwards, we create a t-chart and compare our findings. This is always so fun as it is interactive and involves a whole-group discussion on what is fact and what is fiction. As I am recording the students’ findings, I am also highlighting correct capitalization, punctuation, and spacing along with sounding out the letters for additional spelling practice.
Planning ahead for some spooky fun with your students? This newly updated Spider Craftivity would be perfect to help your students reinforce writing skills with simple graphic organizers! Plus, it’s also adorable to display in the classroom or hallway! Click on the link in profile for more info. http://bit.ly/2gTkRn9 🍂⚽️🕷👻#teacherspayteachers
If you are into pumpkins and Halloween as well, here are two UPDATED resources for K-2 math, science, and literacy activities!
