NO HALLOWEEN??? Think "OUTSIDE" the box!

NO HALLOWEEN PARTY?????!!!!!!

 WHAT???

NO  COSTUMES AT SCHOOL?


NO Candy....No  PARTY!

WHAT!??????

So  how to
"CELEBRATE"
without
"celebrating" ?

( think OUTSIDE of the box )..




We are having a "rotation" party!

The kids rotate to each of 3 classrooms.
Each teacher prepares a "project" for 3 different classes.

One-time  prep.   Stay in MY classroom.
Kids get to do 3 different projects.
They move!

WIN!  WIN!!

So here are our 3 projects:

Room  4 :
SCIENCE!

Bat Hats!

We just add some  BAT FACTS 
to incorporate our 
informational writing!

Room 7:
Skeleton Bones!

Cute  craft!
Counting!

Room 3:

Candy  Necklaces!
WHAT? 
 ( Yes... We will have CANDY!)

Here  is  the  HOW  TO...

Need  :  Plastic Wrap


Yarn:   2  long pieces  and  4  small pieces  per  person


5  candies  per  person
(ANY 5 candies will do!)


Lay the plastic wrap horizontal.
Put candy  in a line...in the middle of the wrap.


Roll the  candies in the wrap "like a burrito".


Tie the long yarn to the ends. 


Use the small strings in between each candy. 
I tie them in a knot, then a bow.

TA DA!

Wear   them home!
(Can't  eat candy until they get home!)

and  so.....

We "really" aren't  having  a 
HALLOWEEN  "PARTY"...

Just a little
"FUN" in room 3!

and  a little candy to take home!

So we wish YOU a safe and happy
HALLOWEEN!

Why didn't I Pay Attention????

Think back.
Think back to high school.
Think back to junior high school.
Think back to elementary school.

For me..  that's a WAY BACK in time!

via GIPHY

Not THAT far !

Now.
Think back to when you were first taught
US HISTORY.

I mean REALLY taught US HISTORY!


via GIPHY

I was bored too. 
YAWN.

BUT...

I should have paid attention!
I should have listened!
I should have been..INSPIRED!

But, I wasn't.


This fall break,
 hubby & I went to Virginia.
(USNAVY son & granddaughter live there).

THERE IS SO MUCH US HISTORY THERE!

Yes. I will admit it.
I had to...UM...GOOGLE..some of it!

REVIEW MY PRIOR LEARNING!
REVISIT dates, places,& names that
SOMEONE had taught me A LONG TIME AGO!
I passed the tests..but I don't remember a thing!

This time...It was fascinating!
It was so exciting, humbling, so enthralling!

I was excited to learn!  AGAIN!

And so..
Here are a few of the places we went, 
the things we saw, 
and the people I want to know MORE about.

I am searching for new books to read, now.

Seeing and becoming a PART of history...
has made me want to learn more!

Wow! Maybe that's how our kids feel.  :)

I think next time...
I will listen, engage, be a part of new learning.
Then I won't have to REPEAT IT!  HAHA


















So.. As I "relive" my vacation through the pictures...
I think I will spend a little "research" time
 on the parts I
 "missed"
 the first time!

Have a Great Week!

PAY  ATTENTION!
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS A THING! :)
