HALLOWEEN SECRET SELFIE - descriptive writing

HALLOWEEN SECRET SELFIE - descriptive writing

This craftivity is a great way to celebrate Halloween, with a 21st-century twist on descriptive writing. Students will write down 4 descriptive phrases, and either draw or place a picture of a Halloween image. They will then decorate a small square and stick it like a post-it note on top of their picture, to make it a surprise! Suggestions: -print these printables on coloured paper to really stand out. -encourage to children to decorate and colour in the backgrounds. -collect work from children, or display, and play a game to guess which phrases describe which Halloween image. ---- Thanks to FFG clipart!

There are a HUGE amount of different task cards included in this bundle which you and your students are sure to love. This pack also contains editable 'titles' to use in the front of storage boxes where you can write the activities that can be found in that storage box. I store these in photo keeper boxes, making them quick to grab out and go, then work my way through the different boxes so students get a chance at working on a variety of different activities. You can use these cards as 1:1 work, group centre work or even as full class activities. Instructions are also included on first pages of each PDF document. I would highly recommend laminating each of the individual task cards so that they will be stronger, therefore longer lasting.

Halloween Activities - Ten Frame Task Cards

Halloween Activities - Ten Frame Task Cards

Halloween Task Cards, Counting, Ten Frames This download includes task cards with ten frames 0 - 10. Students have to count how many pumpkins are in the ten frame and then select the correct answer out of 3 choices on the bottom of the task card. Come in color/colour or black and white option. Instructions are included on the first page of PDF file. 2 task cards come on each page. I recommend cutting and laminating each task card individually, by laminating the task cards you will find they are stronger and longer lasting. This means you can use them year in, year out for your students, just pulling them out of the cupboard and you can wipe them clean after your students have finished with them! Great for number/counting practice especially for Halloween.

Halloween: Spelling and Handwriting Task Cards

Halloween: Spelling and Handwriting Task Cards

This resource is a great way for your students to work on their spelling and handwriting skills, plus it's linked to the theme of Halloween. Each page comes with two task cards on it with the same image/vocabulary. One task card is for spelling or handwriting - it comes with a prompt above so students can either use the included letters to match them or they can write in the boxes underneath to work on their handwriting skills. The second task card on the page is for students to work on their handwriting by having a prompt underneath, this is where students will overwrite the word. The task cards come in b/w and col option for your preference. ♦ Task Card 1: Students have a picture, prompt and then cut out letters to match to the words or use the prompt above to work on their handwriting in the boxes below. ♦ Task Card 2: Students over write the Halloween word. This activity does require you to do a bit of cutting and laminating but it is well worth it and will be long-lasting and beneficial to your pupils. Cut out the task cards and laminate them as your 'base'. Then cut out the individual letters and laminate these. I recommend laminating as they will last longer but if you want to use as a cut/paste activity with your students these will also be great.
