Welcome to my October pages!

Feel free to take a look around by scrolling down.

You'll find a collection of some of my

favorite activities to do during October!

 Giant Miss Spiders

I did whole class a guided cutting.

Later we wrote in small groups.

The first line of this child's should

say likes instead of is :)


Chocolate spiders, melted chocolate chips,

Chinese noodle legs m&m eyes. Messy but yummy!

Batty Cooking!

We made our bats with Oreo's,

triangle shaped crackers,

candy corn, and M and M's.

This was an extra special treat!

Yummy spider spaghetti!

We brainstormed all the ingredients

that a spider would like in their spaghetti.

I found clip art to find all the bugs and flowers.

We used interactive writing to make our list!

We read Stellaluna and then we each

made our own fruit bat.

Who Are You? Boo! I am ...

We painted a self portrait then,

added a ghost to the top to make a fun flip book.

We read our class book in a very scary voice!
