1-2-3 Come Do A Halloween Craftivity With Me
Are you looking for a few quick, easy and fun activities to do on your Halloween party day, but still need to cover some standards? Then I think you'll enjoy this candy corn craftivity.
It's very versatile. Use it to reinforce circles, the concept of small, medium and large; or have students write whatever you want them to practice, on the individual sections of the candy corn pieces.
Students can get a lot of cutting practice in with this activity, or to expedite things, pre-cut the 3 sizes of circles on orange, yellow and white construction paper, then choose which fraction template you want to use and run it off.
Students trim their fraction circle, then place it on the top of their candy corn circle, that they've glued together. Holding the two circles together, they cut on the black lines to quickly and easily make individual pieces of candy corn!
I've made samples to give you some ideas of what you can do with the pieces of candy corn. Have students write CVC words, or upper and lowercase letters on the sections.
You can also review shapes, breaking down a number or counting to 30. Students can also practice writing the orange, yellow and white color words, then writing down examples of things that are those colors.
If you're working on fractions, I've included pocket chart cards for a quick review.
You also have the option to have your students cut their candy corn circle into 1/4ths, 1/5ths, 1/6ths, 1/8ths, or 1/10ths. (I've included templates to run off so they can place them on top and cut on the black lines.)
