Can you guess what I am going to be for Halloween? My husband, and two of our friends are running a 5K on Halloween and it's a costume run, so we are going to be minions! We made these shirts this weekend, and I love how they turned out! There may or may not be a blue tutu to go with it :) I'm NOT crafty at all, so this was a win.
I love these teacher ideas for Halloween costumes, so in case you haven't decided yet, you may find a fun idea here!

So, let's talk Halloween in the classroom. Chaotic, right? It doesn't have to be. You can do some really fun activities AND keep pluggin' away at those common core skills and learning targets.
First, to get you started, you'll want to download my free "Halloween in a SNAP" Planning Guide. It's loaded with clickable links to resources, games, activities, snack ideas, and more to cover every content area.
