Halloween garland

Yup, I said the "H" word - because I am on vacation.  So, you can say that word when you are on break.  Here is an activity we did the week of parent conferences.  I was going to do more activities, but the grand baby came, so we just got the art project and beginning graph made.  The inspiration came from a garland that I saw on Pinterest (can't find it) and I just kept making more.  It was a lot of fun.

Each kiddo was able to pick one candy corn to make, all the pieces were ready to go.  Since I have 29 kiddos, I made 5 of each one.  I put them on my board from easiest to hardest - then let the kids pick which one they wanted to do.  I guided a couple of kiddos to make the ghost, so they would feel successful.  After, they made them - we voted for their favorite ones and came up with the title.  I was going to take the 3 favorite ones and make a smaller version for them to take home - but the grand baby came.  I love that guy.

A few pictures of them hanging on the clothesline in my classroom.

I was going to post the patterns, but I forgot them at school.  I might run to school later this week and get them uploaded for next year.  Let me know if you would like a copy of the patterns and I will send them to you.

** On a sidenote, I love watching my new grand son sleep.
