September and October have gone by very quickly. Halloween is coming up in just over a week, and I know that many teachers will be looking for some fun activities to do with their students – especially since Halloween is on a Monday this year! Those little goblins will be bursting with Halloween excitement and will need to kept very busy at school that day!
I have compiled a list of terrific, interactive resources that work well on the SMARTboard (but also in the computer lab, mobile device/tablet, or just projected onto a screen) that all have to do with the Halloween theme. Many of these are great to tie in to literature or other activities in your classrooms. For example, yesterday I read a class the book, “Pumpkin Heads” by Wendell Minor, and to follow up did a pumpkin carving activity on the SMARTboard using a site where we “carve” pumpkins electronically and light them up for Halloween. Lots of fun!
Find the complete compiled list of interactive Halloween resources (and tons of other great stuff!) on the Smart Resource wiki. Please consider joining this wiki and adding great sites of your own that you think would work well on SMARTboards and link to the BC Curriculum.
