True to form Gibbons highlights the origins of this holiday and touches on the different traditions that are a part of Halloween. This text is part of a series of nonfiction books that explain holidays and what makes them special. These books are simple to understand and very informative. They are a great addition to an early elementary classroom library.
Reading Halloween Is. . . is one of the activities we will be doing in class this week. Another is math related. I created a fun little Halloween word problem math mini book to use with my students. If you would like a copy of this mini book click on the picture below.
Speaking of Halloween, we are totally ready at our house. Candy has been bought, decorations are up, and yesterday we carved our pumpkin. A was a big help. She cleaned all the goop and seeds like a pro (she's already helped the grandparents). She can't wait for Thursday.
Halloween is such a fun holiday for kids. Be sure to harness some of this excitement for learning in your classroom.
