Halloween Bulletin Board and Ideas

Here's one of my many fall / Halloween bulletin boards. Students had to choose a compound word to break into pieces. The first part was written on the top, the second part was on the middle, and the complete compound was written on the bottom. Example: scare + crow = scarecrow

You can find the candy corn clip art here or click the picture to download.

We did "how to" writing using transition / sequence words. Here's our bulletin board strip on how to carve a pumpkin.

My students made these jack'o "lanterns" and LOVED them. We used a full sized piece of orange construction paper, however, so I decided to scrap my original plan of using toilet paper rolls covered in yellow construction paper for the middle. Next year I'll try it with a half piece of paper instead!

I've really been trying to encourage our students and class parents to make good food choices, but I fell in love with these pumpkin rice krispie treats! 

I asked our room parents to use an all-orange food theme and to keep it healthy every day and for our party, so these other ideas are great too!

I found this idea for a school Halloween costume on Pinterest (definitely needs a little modification to be a little more school and weather appropriate!) We'll see if I can get a couple of other teachers to join in!

Have you entered my giveaway yet? It's another reason to celebrate! :)
