Halloween Fun

It's almost that time of year when the kids stop thinking about school and more about what they are going to wear on Halloween -- and more importantly -- how much candy they are going to collect!

As a reward for finishing assignments in class, I have found some great online activities that have a "spooky" feel.  So far, my students have loved them!!  Many are Flash games -- so make sure you have Flash enabled.

For the Littles (Kdg- 2nd) I found some fun activities that help strengthen their drag/drop, language arts, and math skills.  The kids really liked the activities!  Some of our favorites are:

Farmer Fred's Pumpkin Patch - Math
Raking Leaves - Art/Drag/Drop
Pick A Pumpkin - Language Arts
Spooky Sequences

Carve It - Mouse Skills

For my Bigs (3rd-5th), I had them play some of the Escape Games found on the Hooda Math site.  There are tons of great logic/math puzzles focusing on escaping a room, building, or other location.  This sort of cause/effect type game is very popular right now and the kids are loving it.  Some of our favorites are:

Ghost House
Ghost Town
Harvest Festival

Spooky Farm
Corn Maze

What are some of your favorite holiday activities/sites?  I would love to hear about them!

Happy Halloween!
