There’s a chill in the air, leaves are falling, and students are buzzing about costumes. Yes, teachers, it’s almost Halloween! I always love this time of year and the fun activities I get to do with my students. We know this year is going to be different. With social distancing and distance learning being thrown into the mix, how are we supposed to Halloween activities with our kiddos? Read more and I will share with you the six NO PREP Halloween Activities I plan to do with my students this year.

Have you ever heard of Art Hub? This is an amazing art channel on YouTube.com that teaches children how to do different directed drawings. I love doing these with my class! Before we begin, I tell my students that all their artwork will look different and that’s the beauty of it. I also tell them to simply raise their hand if needed and that will be the cue for me to pause the video and give them some extra time. Last week we did the haunted house directed drawing and I tied it into our adjectives lesson. They had so much fun with this easy no prep Halloween Activity! I love that I can also share this activity with my students at home as well as at school (I’m currently Hybrid teaching).

I think writing prompts are fa-BOO-lous.  Typically, I use writing prompts as a warm-up activity before writing class or as an informal formative check-in on a specific skill I taught (ex. dialogue). In years past I have loved using these writing prompts as quick no prep Halloween activities. This year I needed to adapt. So I have transformed all of my favorite October writing prompts into digital prompts for Google Classroom. Now my at-home learners and in-class learners can do a Halloween writing activity too!

I love helping my students grow in their craft as writers. So, any chance I get to engage them (like with Halloween spooky stories) and take them through the writing process, I am all about. This year I have created a Halloween digital notebook to do just that! My students will be using this no prep resource all week leading up to Halloween. From digital writing prompts, to word lists, this Digital notebook will take them through all the skills needed to write some SPOOK-tacular stories! I can’t wait to use this digital writer’s notebook with my students this week and read the BOO-tiful stories they write!

I love math games, but how am I supposed to play math games when my kiddos can’t touch the same game board or get too close? I think I’ve finally come up with a solution to my math game problem, roll and write games! I’ve created bright and colorful math games that my students can play while maintaining their required distance. Happy dance time!

This week, my plan is to give each partner identical game pumpkin multiplication boards, a dice, and game play pieces (I use pompoms). This way they can mirror each other game boards as they play! Interested in checking out my Roll and Write Math Games? CLICK HERE!
