Another fun project I like to do in October uses Joy Crowley's book Yuck Soup! It's an easy reader about monsters who put in all sorts of yucky things into a pot of soup. Who does not love yucky things in October?
We like to make Kindergarten Soup! It's much more delicious! We have each student bring in a bag or box of crackers, cookies, or whatever and mix it into one of those giant cauldron's. It's really fun and makes a great snack!
The project includes 2 parent letter options, a class book page for several grade levels (and a generic one,) and a graphing activity.
This is another great alternative to doing Halloween things at school!
