And the Winner of my Favorite Holiday is...HALLOWEEN!

I love Halloween. I love the fall--the crisp air, the red and gold leaves, that feeling you get when you sit outside with a book and a cup of coffee (audible sigh)....Fall is all about change, and change is very bittersweet (let's not think about the alternative to change, not on this beautiful day). Winter reminds us of that.

By fall, the school year is in full swing, and the honeymoon is long gone, but that's okay. That just means that it's time to reignite the flame we all felt at the end of summer holidays.

Routine is important--vital for students in this changeable world. But the best way to rekindle the excitement that peaks around the first week of the school year is to throw a little holiday fun their way when you can. That's why I've spent the past week with my head in the clouds, thinking about holiday activities.

And I can't let family game night or family movie night go unanswered. So my apologies for not having my Age of Exploration Interactive Notebook up and running. It's almost ready, but not quite, and I want everything to be "just so."

What I do have are Halloween Activities for English, social studies, and sociology. They will break up the daily routine, and encourage students to collaboratively write scary stories, learn about the history of Halloween, or consider the social implications of Halloween costumes.

Get it Here!

Get it Here!

Get it Here!


I even bought an electric tea kettle and hot cocoa for the occasion....I'm excited!

What is your favorite holiday, and how do you celebrate it at school? Leave a comment below to let me know.

Come back next week when I really do reveal my Age of Exploration Interactive Notebook!

Until then,
Leah
