Five for Friday - Halloween Edition

Boy was it a long week...full moon...full day of school on Friday with the Halloween party in the afternoon, but I actually had a really good day!  I'm celebrating by linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!



Fletch and Emmitt finally made it to the groomers this week.  They were looking pretty rough around the edges, but they are all spruced up and ready to greet our trick or treaters!



Notice Fletch is no longer wearing his cute kerchief as Emmitt immediately yanks it off of him every time they get home from the groomers.  Literally within five minutes every time!


I had such a nice day today with my class!  I had them work quietly on a packet of Halloween pictures to color and puzzles and called a few kids at a time to put on their costumes.  They were so quiet!  They actually came back in with their costumes on and continued to color quietly!  It was a beautiful sight!



One of the stations at our party was a game in my new Hundred Board Activities bundle called Tootsie Roll.  The kids seemed to have a lot of fun with it!




At the end of the party the kids settled right in and watched It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.



A bunch of us at school came up with a cute but cheap costume idea which is the best kind!  We ordered t-shirts from JiffyShirts.com, downloaded a free crayon template from Squawkfox.com which you can find here, iron on transfers from JoAnn fabrics (using 50% and 60% off coupons), and then party hats from the dollar store which we each covered in construction paper to match our shirts. Each of us only paid a total of $5 for everything!


Have a great Halloween weekend and be sure to check out all the other Five for Fridays!

  2. Loving the crayons! I managed costume-changing time the same way you did. They need something that requires them to SIT! Have a great week.
