A Halloween Freebie and Giveaway

 

I love Halloween!  It's such a fun day at school.  I really try to enjoy the days where we get to take a break, and just be together and enjoy each other.  Halloween is one of those days.  We are super lucky that Halloween is on a Friday this year!
No matter what school I am at in our district, Halloween is usually the same, routine-wise.  Costumes in the afternoon and a costume parade in the gym at 1:00.  It's awesome to see all the kids dressed up.  Typically there are several teachers dressed up too.  I am one of those teachers!  In the past, I've dressed up as a nurse, as Mary Poppins, and Olive Oyl.  I am doing a partner costume with a colleague this year - but I'm not willing to reveal what it is just yet!!
After the costume parade, we come back to class for a little party.  Parents usually provide snacks, which I really appreciate.  I try to request healthy snacks as much as possible.  Click here to see some excellent healthy Halloween snacks.
No matter the holiday, I like to give a little gift to my class. 
Here's what my students are getting this year:

A pencil, pencil topper eraser, plastic teeth and two eyeball chocolates.  They're all bagged up and ready to go.  I'm feeling very efficient!

This year, we're going to integrate a little math into Halloween. I'm going to ask my students to bring their Halloween candy to school on Monday.  If you didn't want to do this, you could have students graph any candy given out at school.  Or, you could poll your students on their favourite type of Halloween candy and just graph that.
