Halloween Bash Blog Hop

Welcome to Creating, Teaching, Inspiring!! 
I have an awesome post full of fun fall ideas for you and your classroom during the Halloween Bash Blogger Hop!!  Do not forget to click the links to enter the giveaways and continue hopping through The Teaching 2 Step blog!

Halloween is such a fun time in the classroom.  I love the holiday for the candy! haha. I also love Halloween because it officially marks "real" autumn in North Carolina.  It's finally chilly, and you can wear your jeans and sweatshirts! 

Here I am with last years Halloween costume on!  My team is 5 people large, and we had the perfect idea! We were the Five Little Monkeys!  What a great way to include math into Halloween!  During our math lessons, we talked about having a total of five monkeys and what would happen if one falls off.  This introduced the concept of subtraction without using the word subtract, or minus but by using the concepts of more and less.  During Literacy lessons, we discussed different topics, such as, characters, setting and events in a story.  This costume really brought in so many different educational topics!  Such an easy costume, and fun way to celebrate Halloween in a non spooky kind of way.  

I said that I love Halloween for the candy, but Reeses are definitely my favorite!  Leave a comment with your favorite!!  I bet a lot of teachers would agree--anything chocolate is good for me! 

I wanted to include a few of my favorite things about fall and the Halloween season!  I love the dollar bins and sale prices - you get such a deal to decorate the classroom or your house!  And isn't everything pumpkin flavored better?!  Pumpkin cookies, lattes and candle scents--fabulous!  And not to mention, the change of colors just makes my day! 

Lastly, I would like to leave you with a writing center freebie for the full week of halloween!  It is perfect in Pre-K, Kindergarten or even First Grade for an independent writing/reading center.  Great way to have a fun activity during a crazy, spooky, candy filled, week!  Enjoy this freebie, make me a promise and leave me some great feedback! ;)
