It certainly makes Elementary teachers (and parents) happy when Halloween falls on a Friday! The day can be a fun break from the ordinary and we don't have to come to school tomorrow with everyone tired or on a sugar high! On October 31, the Grade 2-3's rotated through 5 stations to practice skills in a fun Halloween theme way.
Miss Martin, our Grade 11 student assistant, led the group in a game of Halloween word Bingo. The bingo "chips" were spider rings and other spooky things.
Mrs. Perreault led her group in some Math games using spooky dice. In one game, called Spider, the object was to get the number 8 by adding and subtracting after rolling the dice.
The number of pumpkins in your house is double three.
The ghosts and pumpkins in your house add up to 10 altogether.
Another choice when at the IPads was to use the Cookie Doodle App to create a Halloween themed cookie. Students could even eat the cookie, virtually of course!
Another creating station was where students could make a card for someone to wish them a Happy Halloween.
The day ended with treats and a party as well as visiting the haunted houses set up by Grades 7 - 12. What a fun and memorable day at Reston School!
