I LOVE Halloween! It was always been one of my favorite holidays. Of course we try to incorporate some educational Halloween activities into our October lesson plans. A super fun activity that I did with my kids this past week was making our own monsters. This is something that The Lesson Plan Diva and Plug-and-Plan have also done in the past. I let the kids chose a mouth, nose, and some eyes. They free cut a head or body and just created! It was really cool to see what they came up with. After they finished their monster, it was time to write! I wrote some questions on the board to try and help direct their writing. We also incorporated some Editing mini-lessons into our writing. The kids did great with this!
