Boo likes Halloween ?

Click picture to download freebie!

I don't know about you, but I cannot believe that it's already mid-October.  I have so much on my "to do" list.

With Halloween a little over 2 weeks away, I thought you might like another freebie!  This is a ghost matching game that I made for a magazine project. The ghost cards contain numbers 1-12, and there are corresponding ghosts with number words. The game cards fit in the pumpkin box (template included), and the kids are to shake them up and then match them.  It's a simple game that can be used for Halloween treat bags, or for a party activity.

*NOTE*  This would be a great activity to use up recycled construction paper, cardstock, or scrapbooking paper.  Have fun with it!

Crayonbox Learning Newsletter -  When I scheduled my first newsletter to go out, I didn't remember that Columbus Day was Monday.  I'd like to make sure everyone has a chance to sign up.  If you haven't, add your email address to the space provided (right sidebar).  I am working on the presentation of the newsletter. I am using MailChimp for the delivery, if for some reason by late Tuesday, if you haven't received your newsletter please let me know.  This will be the first one going out using this system, and I want to make sure that everyone is able to read it, and doesn't hit spam folders.  I look forward to sharing more with you!

Tutorials:  I will be adding some more tutorials to my Blog in conjunction with the newsletters.  There has been such an overwhelming, positive response to the tutorials I made for Woo Box/Facebook, and Google Docs that I plan on making more.  If you have a topic area that you would like me to cover, please email and let me know.  I am happy to help where I can.

Last but not least,  I was curious how many of you cook with your students?   I've been watching Master Chef Junior, and I was just AMAZED at how talented these young people are.  In the past, I have cooked with my students.  Not only does it help with learning how to measure, and to learn about chemistry, but cooking projects can also foster teamwork.  You can assemble healthy snacks as part of a cooking segment in your room if you don't want to work with or don't have the ability to use a cooking facility.

P.S.  Crayonbox Learning is participating in a HUGE Facebook Frenzy starting this Friday.  There are over 40 different creators that are participating!  Each stop in the link up will have a freebie for you to download.  I'll post a note here on my Blog when the Frenzy is ready to go on Friday.  It's an awesome way to collect some neat Halloween, Fall, Harvest materials!!
