Halloween Party Time and a Witches' Brew mini-unit {freebie}!

Does your school allow you to have a Halloween Party?  Well, we can't officially have a "party", but we can have Halloween activities as long as they have learning opportunities. Well DUH, I can turn anything into a learning experience!  We had our Halloween party last week {remember, I'm going off track} and let me tell you how fun it was! I have the best room moms!


How cute is this treat? One of the moms got Halloween Peeps and Oreos and put them on sticks!



Talk about a fun and exhausting game! The students raced their spider rings across the table by blowing in the straw!

We read {again} "The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything" and made the noises with each of  scarecrow parts. Then, we made the scarecrow at the end! You can find some more activities with this in my Halloween Unit.




Here's a fun activity I got from my 1st grade team that I'm doing this week! I made up the poem and activities to go with it. You buy all of these yummy ingredients at your local grocery store.
{split it up the list with like 3 classes so you don't have to buy all of the ingredients- 
you don't need a lot of each item}

You've got to go ALL OUT with this!  Dress up like a witch {or have one of your room moms come and do it}. Turn down the lights and use a flashlight!!!  You kiddos will really think you are making a brew!





After you make the brew as you read the poem, you serve it to your kiddos. I'll just give it to the kiddos in a little baggie. We eat some and we will do some of these activities.



You can download witches' brew mini-unit {here}. 




Sallie over at A Teacher Always Grows made the CUTEST class book from the ZYX Halloween Alphabet Song we posted about last week. It turned out so cute and I can't wait to do it with my class. Head over there and download your freebie! And grab the cover of the book {here}.



If you have purchased my "Being a Guided Reading Wizard" on TpT, please go download the updated/revised version! I added decoding strategy posters!!!!

OMG! I do the exact same witches brew!!! It's a little different because I leave notes from "Wanda the Witch" each day with the given treat. The kids LOOOOVE it! My sister-in-law then dressed up like a witch and comes in for the Halloween party to act as Wanda. Check it out here:

This is fantastic! I found the link on Mommy and Me Creations blog, where I was featured, too. I have printed this off, but I do a non-edible version of witches brew which (it "boils" in the end with alkaselter tablets) and the kids go nuts and think I am oh-so magical! I will probably be sharing it on my blog later this week, so be sure to follow!
Thanks for all you do.

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention. Termite spraying
