Need a quick Halloween art project?Try this What Should my Teacher be for Halloween quick and fun art
or if you need something that will take a little longer you can try doing Mixed up Monsters with your class. I'm pulling out Mixed up Monsters asap so I can have a cute Halloween door before October slips away.
Need a quick Halloween read aloud so you can chill out for two seconds?
Try out Storyline Online. There's a great reading of I Need My Monster read by Rita Moreno that the kids love. You will need access to YouTube to watch this at school though. I feel for you if YouTube is blocked by school filters. I had that issue one year too. I hate it when people who've never taught are in charge of making technology decisions. Boo! (not the Halloween kind of BOO- the THIS IS RIDICULOUS and I'm going to smack someone kind).

Have a little more time to put together a teacher costume or want to dress up like a book character?
Check out this step-by-step Olivia costume. Plus look at my cute friends dressed as Pinkalicious and Lily from Lily's Purple Plastic Purse. My awesome teammate just had those to die for yellow cowboy boots in her closet!
Need an October read aloud?
The Araminta Spookie series is one of my favorites! Araminta is spunky and quite hilarious (as most of my favorite fictional characters are), plus I just love saying the words "bat sack" which you get to do quite a bit if you read the first book aloud. (It's the little things that make us teachers happy you know). My second and third graders all loved these books and wanted to continue reading the series after we read the first one together. You can get it at Amazon here.
