Halloween is my second favorite holiday, because sorry, Christmas comes first! Halloween can be a really fun day in the classroom, but teaching should not take a back burner. I mean sure, your students are probably going nuts thinking about the actual festivities that may take place that day, but that doesn’t mean educational fun can’t be had as well! Because I love Halloween so much I created a Halloween mini unit that covers both math and literacy concepts and has enough pages for you to do fun Halloween activities for a week!
Here are just some of the pages from this mini unit.
Teach contractions in a fun way by helping this monster make contractions from the pieces of candy that fell from his bag.
With Batty Base Ten, students will practice writing numbers in different ways. After rolling a dice two times, they write the two digit number, draw the base ten blocks and then write the expanded form of the number.
Homophones are a tricky concept, but can be easy to grasp with Which Witch. After reading each sentence, students write in the correct homophone.
Candy Color is great for actual Halloween because not only is it fun for students, but it is educational too! After solving each addition or subtraction problem, the color the picture according to the code.
If you are looking for even more Halloween goodies, I have several Halloween themed centers as well! Perfect for Halloween day!
