Halloween Task Card Activity Bundle

Halloween Task Card Activity Bundle

This Halloween themed bundle is packed full of different task card activities that target a variety of different skills for students to work on, while being quick to grab and hand out throughout the day, being re-usble each year and introducing the theme of Halloween into your learning environment. 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.

Differentiated KS2 Harry Potter Capacity Lesson with Dumbledore Video

Differentiated KS2 Harry Potter Capacity Lesson with Dumbledore Video

The original resource and idea came from the following tes member so please check that our first! This is meant to be an addition to that lesson: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/capacity-magic-potions-empty-measuring-jug-6189506 I have used the same potions and ingredient names as the original resource (I changed some of the measurements slightly to suit my Year 3 class) and added on some other elements. The potion labels from the original resource wouldn't print on my computer properly so I've made a version of the labels that is as close as I could get them to the original. What I have made myself are letters from Hogwarts which can be aged with teabags and tied with string **Tailor them to your school/class. 5 differentiated maths riddles which can also be teabag dyed and tied with string which I had the secretary drop-off during the lesson saying an owl had just dropped them outside the office. **Again edit them to suit your class I also made a video using the photospeak app (a great idea from a colleague of mine) so that it seems like Dumbledore is talking to the class (I've tried to cut-out where he says "Miss Wilson" so that it can be used more generally and have uploaded the more general video to Youtube). It does skip where I've cut the video so you may want to make your own but if short for time this version should do. If your class is not Year 3 simply forward past the "greeting Year 3" bit to where it says "I have heard that you are a very bright bunch of witches and wizards and I need your help." Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFyn8aIG8nQ&feature=youtu.be You can also download the video from this post. I also made top secret folders to put the potions inside (top secret clipart included) and used fishing wire to hang Hogwarts letters from the ceiling (Hogwarts letters clipart included). And printed a Platform 9 3/4 sign on A3 paper and laminated for our door (included). Liquid ink and feathers found at HobbyCraft. Please check out my Harry Potter Grammar Mystery here as the two lessons would tie-in together nicely: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks2-differentiated-harry-potter-grammar-mystery-11732472
