In Canada, October means Fall, Thanksgiving, Gratitude, Halloween and Fun. It is a great time to use seasonal material to engage students in learning. When I began teaching, I did the basics for Fall and Thanksgiving, and then I spent lots of time with Halloween ideas. As time went on, this shifted. I began to focus more on Thanksgiving and gratitude and I kept Halloween activities for the end of the month.
Teaching about gratitude and kindness is so important. I believe that this is one of the most important things we can share with others. If people have an attitude of gratitude, and develop giving natures, the world will be a better place. This poster shows just how acts of kindness can cause an explosion if we all get involved.
I have created several products that focus on Fall and Thanksgiving. To see the details, click on the images below.
As Halloween approaches, the following activities will keep children engaged.
I wish everyone an exciting and fun-filled October and I look forward to seeing some of the blog posts of fall adventures.
