I love Fall..if you've read any of my blog posts lately you will quickly come to that conclusion all on your own.
Partly, it's the weather but mostly it's because of Halloween and Thanksgiving. I just love these two holidays. Halloween was always so much fun growing up. It's close to my brother's birthday so we almost always a had a Halloween/Birthday Party. I such great memories of us all dressing up and going trick-or-treating with friends.
Plus living in Southern California I get to be near lots of theme parks that change just for this special day. Knott's Berry Farm turns into Knott's Scary Farm. Believe me… it is scary. They have ghouls and monsters roaming around the park with the sole purpose of scaring people. Every year, I go and every year, I get scared and every year, I swear I will not go back… but then I do.
Anyway..since I love Halloween…and I am sure 99% of kids love Halloween too… we need to take advantage!
Halloween characters are easy to integrate into our students' learning!
Let's look at what you can try!
