Ok, so I have a list of links to my Halloween activities we'll be doing in the next few days. Hope this helps some people!

Spooky stories (we're going to write these and then tell them around a 'campfire'): http://www.welcometothepond.com/Spooky Stories.htm

Monster Tales: http://www.welcometothepond.com/Monster Tales.htm

Moans, Groan and Skeleton Bones: http://www.welcometothepond.com/Moans Groans and Skeleton Bones.htm

Spooktacular Story Board (to be used with spooky stories): http://www.lauracandler.com/holidays/Spooktacular-Story-Board.pdf

Pumpkin Predictions: http://www.lauracandler.com/holidays/pumpred.pdf

Pumpkin Talk: http://www.lauracandler.com/holidays/pumptalk.pdf

Halloween Point Plotting: http://www.lauracandler.com/holidays/pumkplot.pdf

I also printed out a sheet of tiny pumpkins, ghosts, witches, etc. The kids will write stories, and whenever they are referring to the witch, they will put a picture of the witch. I forget what these are called, but we're going to use them to work on dialogue.

Jem-
Those all look like such fun ideas! How are you going to fit them all in?
I like the Moans, Groans, and Skeleton Bones book, but I couldn't tell from the website how it gets put together. Is it one of those books where you flip the 3 different parts, and get different sentences each time?

I love the pumpkin science sheet from Laura Candler.

Tomorrow for me is pumpkinology. They'll count the seeds, see how many pumpkins make up their weight, do general measurements, etc. This year I even decided we are rolling our pumpkins down the large, steep hill at school to see which is going to fall first (in seconds).

Then Friday we'll have a wacko amount of science after the stories at the campfire- atomic slime, sound effect balloons, science with light sticks, and... food, food, and more food. Okay, that last part isn't science!! But I'm DEFINITELY looking forward to the upcoming festivities, letting loose after being sort of rigid this past week.
