It’s October and we all know what that means….it’s the holiday teachers love to hate. You know the one where our little darlings get all dressed up in fun costumes and bang on doors demanding candy. They end up with double their body weight in candy. Which they eat all night. Then they show up at school. And we love them and their days long sugar high. And the tummy aches. And the discussions about why we can’t take candy to lunch as our lunch. Oh, Halloween how I love thee! BUT HALLOWEEN IS ON A FRIDAY! If you could see me know, I am smiling and doing my happy dance!
But seriously…who doesn’t love Halloween?! Even as an adult…it means we get to dress up and play pretend! We will be in NYC for the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade this year (and to see Carol Burnett) so we need ideas….wrestler? football player? I dunno….ideas?!
I love Halloween in the classroom too. It means pumpkins and monsters. And super fun centers and activities. I mean…ghosts and goblins and skeletons and witches! OH MY! All of the festivities might make our darlings a little bonkers (which makes us all mega bonkers) but it’s also easy to find engaging (creepy…crawly…spooky…) activities and tools during October!
Just like these ice cube trays and ping pong eye balls from The Dollar Tree! HAVE YOU SEEN THESE??? GET IN OUR CAR NOW! Road rage all the way to the nearest dollar tree and load up. I’ve bought out 2 Dollar Trees in 2 states! So yeah, um…go now. I’ll wait.
