We're starting into October, the month of Halloween,
when spooky things go bump in the night and around
the classroom. We have some great projects for
kids, fun games, and lots of costumes to make sure
you haunt the neighborhood in style. Please keep in
mind that some costumes sell out, so order early.
We've tried to pick some of the top-selling
costumes, as well as some perennial favorites to
give you a great selection.
|Spooky Games for October
We have some great Halloween games. My personal
favorite is the Dancing
Skeleton, which isn't
technically a game; it is more of an experiment in
movement. If you are familiar with SodaPlay, it's
basically SodaPlay with a skeleton. Experiment with
how it moves, move the anchor points, and then try
it again. It's so cool!
is a Halloween hangman game, where you
lose a pumpkin each time you miss a letter. Solve
the word before your pumpkin patch disappears.
Pumpkin Patch Blast game may drive you a little
crazy as you try clicking on the pumpkins before
they blow-up. Also, don't forget to click on the
mice, before they run away with your pumpkins. See
how well you guard your pumpkin patch.
We have some other games for Halloween, but the last
one I'll tell you about is The
Creepy Halloween Crossword Puzzle. Have fun
with this pun-filled game. There's more than one, so
solve the first one, and see how you do on the next
set of puns.
|Goodies for Your Classroom
We have all sorts of activity pages to use in your
classroom or at home. There are two ways to design
your own pumpkin. You can download the "Design
a Jack-O-Lantern" and sketch in your own designs.
The other option is "Carve
A Virtual Pumpkin for Halloween" which is one of
the coolest things we've seen in awhile. You can
carve your own virtual pumpkin, light it, and send
it as a postcard or
print it out. If you print it, it does a nice black
background which is a perfect backdrop for a poem or
story that can be pasted on top of it.
Note: if you look ahead in the Christmas section,
we have a Decorate Your Own Gingerbread Cookie
too! Our thanks to Theoworlds for
letting us use both of these great projects.
There are lots of other great activity and coloring
pages at ClassBrain to use for Halloween. Be sure
to check them all out.
