Since I teach at a private Christian school I am not allowed to celebrate Halloween with my students. Most of the students do go out trick-or-treating, but there are enough families that have an issue with it that we avoid the issue by not having celebrations in school. As hard as we try to make the day "business as usual" it doesn't really work.
So what is a teacher to do when all your kiddos can think of is candy and costumes? Celebrate National Candy Corn Day of course!
My sweet friend Laura created Candy Corn Sentences for Word Work. They are free on TPT. I hung the task cards around the room and had my kiddos find the verbs and helping verbs in the sentences. They also had to decide if the sentences were past, present, or future tense. Guess what grammar topic we are currently working on?
Of course we ended our day by eating candy corn...well my kiddos did. You couldn't pay me to eat them. What do you do to celebrate, or not celebrate Halloween?
