Halloween in my classroom and BOO!

We don’t celebrate Halloween in my school. In fact, we did not had it in the stores until a couple of years ago. In Spain we have something called Todos Santos. It’s a family tradition. We go to visit our dead family members and friends to the graveyard and take them flowers.
There are some scary stories that say that those days dead people can communicate with us and so on…
So in my school we celebrate our ‘Scary Week’. During next week we read and write scary stories.

We started thinking of scary vocabulary and wrote all the words on the blackboard  The kids had to copy 8 of them on to their bats/spiders. I love giving them chance to choose.

In the middle they wrote something like: I’m not scared!
 The patterns were printed onto colored paper. So this was a quick activity. I only added some clouds and a moon onto the bulletin paper and that’s all! And instant ‘mini’ bulletin board.
If you want to create this, check out my Bat Facts or my Spider Facts printables.
You can see another great example of a Bats bulletin board here. Thanks, Rachel from A-B-Seymour!!!
I have been boo-ed by First grade Fingerprints Check out this great blog to find great ideas, freebies, pinterest boards to follow, arts and crafts!
