I just wanted to share some of the Halloween decorations we've somehow managed to sneak in a few minutes to make. (Don't get me started on the lack of time for anything but language arts and math especially in title 1 schools these days.)
We made these ghosts. I inherited the pattern from my team years ago when I first started teaching at my school.
|This one is mine. The pattern is printed on white xerox paper. Then it is glued onto colored butcher paper. This year I let the students choose between orange, black, green and purple backs.|
|Here they are hanging from my lights. The camera doesn't like shooting into a light. Sorry.|
|The kids love the spiral tail hanging down.|
|It's fun to see how they each decide to decorate their ghosts' faces.|
|You can see the colored backs better in this one.|
|Ghosts coming and going.|
