Kindergartners at Northeast Elementary School participated in a variety of fun and educational activities to celebrate Halloween.

Each class decorated its own pumpkin. Many were designed to look like popular children’s characters including Cookie Monster and Winnie the Pooh, while others were based on books that support Reader’s Workshop. Some pumpkins featured the handprints of all the students in a class. 

There were several science activities related to Halloween, as children learned about the parts and lifecycle of a pumpkin. To support literacy instruction, children wrote short stories following Halloween-themed prompts such as “If I could fly like a bat, I would…” Other students worked on their math skills by making graphs based on different Halloween symbols.
