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.
