I've Been Boo'ed! - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

I've Been Boo'ed!

Gary over at Scrappy Guy Designs is having a fun linky to share about how we "celebrate" Halloween, but remain PC about it. I didn't do much of anything last year except read some fun books, but the year before, we had PUMPKIN MANIA!! Some parents donated pumpkins to carve, and we actually did educational pumpkin activities ALL DAY, including carving our pumpkins!

Looking back at these pictures made me miss my kiddos so much! I actually looped with that crew from 3rd to 4th. They were such a fun bunch!! And the parents were SPECTACULAR. They were the only reason we could HAVE Pumpkin Mania!

This year, I have a few who can't celebrate, so I'll stick with my PC book, I Need My Monster for the week- we'll be doing lots of fun language arts activities with it... and I'm tempted to somehow incorporate the idea Joanne shared today, too, but with a monster mask!! Some of my girls will totally pee their pants!!! :-P


  1. You have to do it! It's very memorable!!! I think there's been a few puddles left in my classroom! LOL I used to do a whole pumpkin day too-looking at your pics makes me miss it!

  2. How fun! I love celebrating the holidays. Maybe I will get "Booed" and can share what we do at our school!

  3. I will NEVER forget...as long as I live...the ONE time I carved a pumpkin in my class. I taught a Kindergarten inclusion class. I had all of my students stick their hands in to take out the seeds. One of my sweet babies had some major sensory issues. When he stuck his hand in, he started gagging...and then I gagged. It was a chain reaction. I haven't stuck my hand in a pumpkin since. That was 14 years ago! HAHAHAHAHA

  4. I'll run into your room if you run into mine!


Thank you so much for stopping by! Please, leave me some love! :)
