5 FUN Oct. Activities That Really Teach!

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.

More Halloween FUN: We made these with pool noodles! Really!

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.

One the first page, the students copy the sight word "Black" and color the cat black.

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.

More Sight Word Fun:

Shaving cream creates the perfect surface for writing sight words.
And when you're all done, just clean it up and your desks are nice and clean!
