Hello Teachers! PBS Learning Media has short video clips, word finds, crossword puzzles and activities to help you provide educational fun for the Halloween holiday. Click on the link below to see what they have to offer.
Epic! has a great selection of Halloween books, videos, and audio recordings. Remember you can assign these to your students if you want. Let me know if you need help with this.
Brain Pop has videos on Halloween, Mummies, Spiders, and Bats. Brain Pop Jr. has a video about Halloween. Remember that you can assign specific videos and quizzes to students and that students can now log into Brain Pop through Clever. I'm happy to help with this if you need it.
Don't forget to use Pebble Go and World Book (through the Digital Maine Library) to dig deeper into whatever you might be studying. Students in grades 3+ should know how to use World Book on their own. Students in grades 1-5 should know how to use Pebble Go. Kindergarten will be introduced next week!
Search the Online Library Catalog for books in the South School Library including nonfiction books about the Halloween holiday and fiction books from our favorite characters: Arthur, Mercy Watson, Henry and Mudge, Hank the Cowdog, Stick Dog, Clifford, Amber Brown, Nate the Great, Franklin, Heidi Hecklebeck, and Magic Treehouse. Reserve your books early otherwise I will make them available for students.
