Shape Monsters & Word Family Spiders

Halloween is quickly approaching and we just finished a full week of conferences. Today I got to enjoy a day off from school which was much needed! I got to sleep in a bit, go to the doctor to check on our baby, grocery shop, clean house, and now I'm finally taking time to relax before the Royals play tonight! As I sit here relaxing, I thought I would share our hallway display during conferences because it turned out too cute!  J     

The first activity we did was a Shape Monster Glyph. I love how colorful and different they all look. The bright colors outside our classroom door just make me so happy! J  It fit in perfectly with our unit about shapes in math. Then I thought it would be a fun display if we made the bulletin board interactive for the parents as they come to conferences. The glyph guidelines were posted so that they could guess which monster belonged to their child. Then they could check their guess by lifting the question mark that covers the students' pictures. All of this can be found in my store so that you can make your own monster glyphs and an interactive board if you'd like! 

 The next activity was a word family spider. We did the -at word family. You can download this freebie here. On each of the legs, the students glued an -at family picture and wrote the word for the picture using construction paper crayons. They turned out pretty cute and the kids loved seeing them hanging in the hallway since there is never anything hanging outside our door.

Can you believe Halloween is this Friday?! At least it's on a Friday this year!! Crazy to think that November is right around the corner. I couldn't be more excited though because that means our baby boy is almost here!! Only 9.5 more weeks to go before the due date! 

Enjoy your weekend and have a fabulous last week of October! J
