I received this box of Halloween items from Oriental Trading in exchange for a write up about how I would use these items at school with the different classes I teach.
Thank you so much to Oriental Trading for these items, the children at my school are enjoying the items and activities.
The first item I picked were these smiley apple erasers. I love using erasers in estimation jars. I did this project with the first graders I work with. I had them make predictions on the recording sheets I made.

Then I had the students lay out the apples and count them. This was important because here I noticed one of the first graders struggles with one-to-one counting.
This week it will be the letter C in K4 so I am taking each class a set of Candy Corn pointers. I hot glued them to the large popsicle sticks. I also made a set for the K5 classes as well. I thought the K4's could search the room for the letter C. The K5's can use them for reading sticks.
I am also going to use the foam stickers I got in the K4 and K5 rooms. I thought we could sort them by color and size. Then make patterns with them. I know the kids will love these.
I think the K5 students will be reading Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf this week and I thought this leaf art project will be perfect for them.
The plastic spiders are for the first graders next week. They will be learning about spiders. I put together this estimation jar for them and a guessing sheet.

When they are finished with guessing and counting the spiders I thought it would be fun to make this art project I found on Pinterest.
The last thing that I received I am saving for the Halloween party in K5. We will be making Halloween pattern necklaces. I thought we could use smiley candy corn necklace to go with that project.
