Keep Calm...It's Halloween Time, Y'all!

It's time for my favorite holiday. It's no secret that I love Halloween. I *might* even be planning a fabulous Halloween party...just because. In celebration of a little fright fest....

And here are some of my favorite halloween activities that you may want to snatch up during my little sale

If I *had* to choose only one of my favorite Halloween/Fall activities, this would be it! My kids always go crazy over pumpkin book reports. Last year we switched it up and did a the same concept, only with biographies! Love, love, love both of these units! So whether you are reading fiction stories, or researching up a storm, these can easily find their way into your classroom. 


I loved how these reports turn out...You can read more about our pumpkin bios {HERE}

And I just can't get enough of these guys! Check out our pumpkin book reports {HERE}
Dead word funeral...check!  Animal Research....check!  Oobleck investigation, Halloween riddles, the life cycle of a pumpkin...check...check...AND check!

This unit is a combination of all things Halloween and writing. Plus it has tons of great resources to assist your students in laying those boring words to rest once and for all!

So, do you do anything special during this spooktacular month? Last night we enjoyed some time at one of Atlanta's most frightening haunted houses with a few of our students...

Tell me...what are your Halloween plans? 


  1. You're right nothing sets the mood better than the Undertaker's entrance music! I had to add you pumpkin book reports to my wish list! Thanks for throwing such a spooky fab sale! :)

  2. I did your project last year and it was a huge hit. I am looking forward to doing it again this year. I had a question about the paint you used. Last year we had trouble getting the paint to stick to the pumpkin. What kind of paint do you use?

  3. All your products look amazing and fun. I used your pumpkin biographies last year and they were a hit!
