I wanted to share a fun Halloween themed activity we did today in class after our Reading Benchmark. We needed to have some fun! So we created Addition Haunted Houses!
First, the students created six addition problems by rolling two dice to create two-digit numbers.
Then they solved the problems and checked their work with calculators. (We needed to practice since our Math Benchmark is tomorrow!)
Can I just say, that I can't wait for benchmarks to be over so I can have my groups back. I hate rows!
Next, the students were given the haunted house template.
They had to cut out the house and cut on the dotted lines to create flaps. (That took some explaining and several attempts, but everyone eventually got it!) Then, they glued the house on another piece of construction paper.
On the front of the windows and door, they wrote the addition problems they had created, then wrote the answer on the inside of the window or door.
Then the creative artistic juices started flowing. Here are some of the finished houses. They looked great!
You can download the House Template on Google Docs.
You could use it for anything, any math facts, parts of speech, vocabulary words, the ideas are endless! Let me know if your class uses it to create something! I love hearing your ideas.
Oh, I don't mean to keep pimping myself out, but I have a brand new set of Task Cards up at my Store! My kids needed to review genre, they still don't have it. So I created some fun task cards with lots of cute clipart to help!
:Like always, I'll give away two sets. Leave a comment telling me what your favorite genre to teach or your favorite genre to read on your own time. I love Historical Fiction & Vampire Fantasy when I have time to read! Be sure to leave your email! :)
