Halloween is such an exciting time for kids! When Halloween is constantly on your students’ brains, it is so helpful to have meaningful, low prep activities for them to put this energy into.
Halloween crafts and activities are the perfect creative outlet for students. Below are a bunch of digital and printable activities that I include in my $5 Halloween Activities Pack, plus a freebie!
HALLOWEEN GLYPHS (PAPER AND DIGITAL):
Students love glyphs! They are a no prep, fun way for students to get creative while learning about each other. They also make a great Halloween bulletin board or wall display.
Included in this pack are 2 printable glyphs and 1 digital Monster Glyph.
A printable or digital bar graph is a fun way to tie in some math as students char their answers as a class!
HALLOWEEN WRITING ORGANIZERS:
Halloween writing graphic organizers are great to use as is, or to use as prewriting for writing about Halloween. Some of the topics included are Halloween Favorites, My Perfect Halloween Night, My Halloween Movie Reel, and All About My Halloween Night.
WITCH’S BREW RECIPE:
Students create the ingredients and recipe to make their very own witch’s brew! This writing activity really lets your students’ creative shine. It is so fun to see what students come up with!
For this activity, I do think it’s helpful to activate background knowledge. You can either come up with examples of some ingredients as a class, listen to Witches’ Brew by Hap & Martha Palmer, or read a book that includes examples of what could go into a witch’s brew, such as the book I am a Witch’s Cat.
HALLOWEEN CANDY CORN CRAFT:
This free, low prep Halloween craft is a great, easy way to celebrate Halloween in the classroom. It is a hands-on way to get students writing about their Halloween favorite!
Having activities students can do completely independently is perfect for early finishers or centers. Included in this pack are also Halloween Word Searches, Halloween Making Words and a Halloween Break the Code.
