October Math The KFUN Way:
I called this activity the "Meow Mall" and I posted each unique cat on the bulletin board before gluing them into their memory books.
Set up a table with craft supplies where students can "buy" the parts to decorate their cats.
Create a menu.
In a small group, give each child a plain black cat and 20 cents so they can shop.
|Here are the craft supplies for the "Monster Mall" below.|
Here is another version of the shopping activity:
|Give each chile a green square face and 10 cents.|
They buy the pieces to create their own monster.
|Use a slice of a pool noodle to create these 5 Little Pumpkins and teach ordinal numbers.|
Halloween Sight Word FUN:
Practicing color sight words has never been so much fun and your students can make an easy reading book to take home and share with their families.
|This is a color version of the black line book cover.|
I usually complete one page a day with my students in a whole group setting. The book contains 9 pages plus the cover, so we complete it over two weeks, but you can also complete several pages at one time in a small group setting.
|A FUN way to learn the color words.|
On the next page, they copy the sight word "Orange" and color the pumpkins orange.
This is my favorite page: I see a green monster looking at me!
They continue in this manner until all of the characters end up at a Halloween party.

Have You Seen My Pocket Lockets?
My students beg to make these each week. They can make a sight word pocket watch or a sight word locket. This is how:
First, they trace the letters and numbers.
Next, they cut out the pocket-locket.
Then, they cut out the individual letters of the sight word.
Next, they glue on the letters on in the correct order.
Last, they add a piece of yarn.
They can wear it in their pockets as a pocket watch or around their necks as a locket.
|This set contains 18 sight words plus a blank|
pocket-locket so you can add more sight words.
