Halloween Behavior Management

Hey Friends and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

This morning I whipped this up super quick to help with on the spot behavior management. Halloween on a Monday is no joke friends! This was probably the best behavior I have seen out of these 25 second graders. They wanted these eyeball stickers something fierce! You could use any sticky eyeball or eyeball stickers. I found some here at oriental trading if you don't have a Target close by.

You can grab these FREEBIE here!

Oriental Trading in October

Happy Fall Friends! I am back to share some new items I found on Oriental Trading's website.  I have some fun things my students are going to do this month. Last month, I shared how you can create a wishlist. If you haven't read my post, you should check it out! It is so easy and helpful!

So this month we will study bats, and read my favorite book, Stellaluna. We are going to use these cute bats to practice our spelling words that week. There are SO many ideas that you could use these for, but I wanted to make it functional for my classroom. Oriental Trading has a TON of these in all kinds of fall shapes.

This past week, we used these Pumpkin Stickers to help our creative writing pictures look amazing. Our prompt was, "Imagine something in your room came alive." The students did GREAT and they LOVED these stickers! I bought two packs for my 24 students and it worked out perfectly.

I also found this pumpkin game that we are going to use with addition and subtraction. I may use it in my small group teacher time. The kids are going to go crazy for this one! How cute are the bean bags?!?!?! 

I also found these great stampers. There are Halloween ones and Fall ones, in case you have littles that can't participate in Halloween! I love these for so many things, but we will use them for a skip counting review.

Yall, my kiddos are going to be so excited about this Zombie Bowling Game! I used a dry erase marker to write sight words or addition problems on the bottom. You could also use stickers or labels! 

I also loved these "Fall" about me papers. They are large, and have plenty of space for my students to write and decorate. I think this will be a great home project for my parents to spend time with their kids. We can talk about these in our morning meeting! There are 30 in a pack, perfect for most classrooms!

You should definitely head over there and check out all of the awesome things. I saw a cute candy corn bowling set, so many things for your treasure box, and learning crafts. And don't forget, you can put these items on a wishlist. Better yet, start your wishlist for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
