[room 209m] week eleven halloween
November 3, 2016
This past Monday was Halloween. The bad thing about having Halloween on a Monday is that then the kids can’t get the idea of Halloween out of their heads all week! The good part is that you really do get a chance to celebrate (at least a little bit) during school. Always on Halloween I have a lot kids students absent. I never know if their parents think there’s no school or just don’t want them to participate in the celebrations that happen at school (for whatever religious reasons). In my class, we really don’t do that much. This year, we read some books that were pumpkin (but not necessarily Halloween) related, we carved a pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern, and we participated in the school kindergarten/first grade costume parade. It was all pretty fun. I would say pulling the seeds out of the pumpkin was the best part though because the students hated it and it was hilarious watching them squirm!
