Teach Now! Spooky Stuff
Teach Now! Home
Spooky stuff — Halloween, spiders, haunted houses, jack o' lanterns — is of high appeal to students in October. The activities in this theme unit capitalize on this interest and allow for exploration across the curriculum. The Spooky Stuff topic provides particularly rich opportunities for writing and art activities, but the unit incorporates math, reading, and science as well. It can be used as a build up or even as an alternative to a traditional Halloween celebration.
 
Math

Join Max to read a Halloween poem online. In the accompanying online and offline activities, students will relate everyday language to a math problem, perceive and create patterns, and identify relationships. Then, stir up a cauldron with the Number Soup reproducible and practice basic computation skills.
 
 
Language Arts

With the Wonderful Word Webs reproducible, students will develop vocabulary skills and identify relationships between words. Travel to the I Spy Library to read a riddle, practice word recognition, and attend to detail. Then, use our Scary Starters to help students create a short story of their own, either as a class or as individuals.
 
 
Art and More

Students practice drawing and engage in other art activities. Pumpkins in the Primary Classroom also has many activities in other areas — science, language arts, math, and social studies. Students will weigh, measure, estimate, and graph, practice observation and description skills, cook with pumpkins, and more.
