Halloween Activities

I can't believe that Halloween is right around the corner!  Are you still looking for activities to do with your class?  You've come to the right place!  Here are some things that I am planning on doing:

1.  STEM Challenge
There are LOTS of fun Halloween themed STEM challenges.  A simple Google search will bring up loads of different ideas.  I am planning to use one that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers.
I found little pumpkins at my local grocery store on sale for 10 for $10.  I can't wait to see the finished products.  Click on the picture to check out the product.

Read on if you'd like to hear my tips! 

Conference Sign Ups
Organizing the conference sign ups was my least favorite part of the process UNTIL I was introduced to my new best friend: Sign Up Genius.  Sign Up Genius is a game changer!
