It wouldn't be the week before Halloween without a whole lot of crafting going on to decorate the room! It was a week of pre-holiday fun, with a whole lot of learning going on, although it doesn't look like it!
1.) Our pumpkin pals turned out oh so cute! We made life cycle booklets to go along with our craft but decided they would be too heavy for the cupboards. Everything falls down in my room. We will add them later.
2.) These silly bats from A Cupcake for the Teacher are so easy and lots of fun. We added a little sparkle with purple and green glitter on the wings. The class has been working on a big nonfiction unit on bats and we will continue it for the next few weeks. We have a field trip to the Bat Zone to see live rescued bats and learn more from the experts!
3.) We've been working on Stellaluna for our genre unit on fantasy all week! The kiddos really enjoyed showing off their fluency as they read to kindergarten buddies today! We also watched a read along video.
4.) This Monster Madness Craftivity was a big hit with the class.
The kiddos were so creative with their stories!
This child wrote that his monster uses echolocation!
Afterward, for Fun Friday, we started watching Monsters Inc. It's a favorite of mine!
5.) Our school is really getting in the spirit! It is a tradition for classrooms to BOO each other by leaving treats. I surprised another class with a few bags of Halloween Oreos, some fall window clings and some owl stickers inside a sparkly witch hat!
The building is all decorated for our big parade on Friday.
There are quite a few of these cute dolls set up in our entrance way and other super decorations throughout the halls.
Thanks for stopping by for a little peek at my week!
Be sure to head over to Doodle Bugs to see who else has joined in the linky!
I'll be back tomorrow with my Weekend Warriors friends for our October theme.
Please stop back for some great tips!
