Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board, or look sweet hanging back-to-back from the ceiling.
Make Patrick, the paper chain scarecrow and hang from the ceiling to review patterning, counting, subtraction etc. Make enough links in an ABAB or ABC color pattern, for however many days are in October. Tear off a link as each day passes. Via discussion, have students count how many days are left 'til your Halloween party, field trip to the pumpkin patch or whatever. A raffia bow adds that finishing touch. If you have time, have students make their own scarecrow in a variety of colors. Suspend from the ceiling or along a hallway wall for a lovely autumn display.
