Haunted Halloween Houses

Standard

Third graders will be starting these haunted house collages next week. I’m looking forward to seeing how they personalize their own!

SCARY!

This is a picture of a HUGE black widow I found under a rock at my house.  I posted so my first graders could see since we are making the Alphabet Spiders! 🙂20130927-091326.jpg

Alphabet Webs

Standard
Alphabet Webs

It will soon be that spooky, fun holiday that shall not be named! To get into the spirit, First Graders will be making Alphabet Spiderwebs!
We start with writing the alphabet all over a black piece of paper with a white construction paper crayon. Then we connect all the letters to each other to resemble a web. Then we use some painted paper to make our spider. I just used some crayons and glitter to add eyes and a mouth.
I added the frame as an after thought but it would probably be better to do that first so you don’t cover up any letters.

Frankenstein Cylinders

Standard

One more Halloween post before I put the decorations away!
These are some cute, simple, one day lesson Frankensteins for the little ones that also teaches them about forms.
We reviewed our flat shapes and then talked about 3D shapes called forms and where you can see them in everyday life. I briefly discussed a kid-friendly version of Frankenstein’s Monster and then we made our cylinders.
First we cut the zigzag line across the black strip of paper and then glued it to the green. Then we added the face and all the Frankenstein-ish details. Finally, we glued the ends of the paper to make our form and I ha to re-enforce some of them with the stapler. It was a fun project to do and they just loved it.

Halloween Catrina!

So I told you I was in love with Dia De Los Muertos…

I decided to be a catrina for my friend’s Halloween party. It was so much fun to dress up like this and do the make up. I just used some face paint I found at Walmart and some liquid eye liner! Fun times! 🙂

More Fall Art…

Standard

Here is another board with several projects displayed. I just love the Witchy Legs. The kids have fun with them and they just POP!
Hope you all are enjoying the Fall!

*I love the one with the fungus growing on her legs! These kids are so stinkin’ creative!

Cool Virtual Pumpkin Carving

Standard

My daughter’s Kindergarten teacher shared this site with her students and when A shared it with me, I loved it! She’s been asking to carve our pumpkin all week and I told her it’s just not time yet. With this site, she can “carve” a hundred pumpkins if she likes and I don’t have to clean up the nastiness of pumpkin goo! This would be a fun thing to do as a center on an Activboard – using shapes, symmetry, lines, etc!
