Primary Punchbowl Fall Blog Hop

I love this time of the year. It is honestly my favorite time of the year to teach. There are so many fun hands-on activities that students can do in the classroom. My students always love our Pumpkin Unit. We spend a week learning all things pumpkin. One of their favorite things we do is this interactive pumpkin book during math and science. For math, students will work in small groups to investigate their pumpkins. Each group has their own pumpkin and will have a different activity each day. For science, students will learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin, parts of a pumpkin, and several other activities. They will finish the week with a pumpkin taste test, which is always a crowd favorite.

Halloween is the beginning of the holiday season, my most favorite time of the year. One thing we did at my school was "You've Been BOOed!" This is such a fun way to spread some holiday cheer and get faculty and staff at your school involved; a great way to encourage community. Everyone seemed to love this and even the kids would get into it.

So here is how it works...
You have a few staff be the 'lucky ones' that will get the chain going. These people will put together a Halloween treat of some sort, along with printing out the necessary papers to inform the chosen ones how it works. The teachers that have been BOOed will place this paper on the outside of their classroom door so that everyone knows that they have been selected (and they do not keep getting chosen). They will then have a couple of days to put together a gift and pick someone to BOO! Before you know it everyone has been BOOed and received a special little something from a coworker.
