Halloween Catch Up!

Sunday, November 4, 2012

So I am a little behind on my Halloween post, but I wanted to share a few pictures from the day!

I was inspired by a book fairy costume that I saw on Pinterest and decided to make my own book fairy costume for Halloween this year! It was super easy to make and did not require a lot of materials or time (although I felt completely horrible ripping pages out of books... thankfully only 2 were harmed in the making of this costume)! I picked up the ribbon, wand, and tiara from Michaels and just used hot glue to attach the book pages. I even made a mini-book and taped it to a necklace. It was such a fun costume to make and my kiddos loved it!

Also, for the past 3 years I have been having my students do pumpkin biography projects for the month of October. They all have to pick a biography book, and I have a good selection of biographies for students at different reading levels. After reading the biography, filling out a report answering various questions about their person, and writing a poem, they get to decorate a pumpkin to look like the person. These are always so much fun and the pumpkins turn out great!

There were lots more wonderful pumpkins, but this is just a small sample of them!

I am linking up with Miss Nelson for her October Teacher's Gonna Snap Linky Party!
