Halloween Websites & Apps

The countdown is on to probably one of the most crazy days in the school year, Halloween! Between the candy, costumes, parties, and spooks it can be a real challenge to keep kids focused this week. Here are some resources that might help. If not, remember… this too shall pass! HA!

The Halloween Tooth:  Scholastic has a math activity based on a simple poem for our K-2 folks. Work on patterns while keeping everybody calm.

Hallo Wiener Lesson Plan: Who doesn’t love this classic story of a helicopter mom and son? I still laugh every time I read this book. Here is a writing activity to go with one of my all time FAVES!

Hallo Wiener Readers Theatre: Get those kids up and acting with this simple, but fun, readers theatre of the book.

Monster Exchange: Always a great activity for everyone, Monster Exchange gets students thinking, creating, writing, and sharing with another student. This is extra special because you team up with another class and share things digitally. You can take the same idea and use in your class or school, but it is definitely a Must Do this time of the year.

ABC YA: ABC YA is a BOO-tiful resource for Halloween. From word searches to online pumpkin carving there really is something for everyone.

Games, Stories, & More: Technology Rocks Seriously has an awesome posting from last year of totally kid friendly sites. Things from PBS kids, Professor Garfield, pumpkins, etc. are all linked. Too good to pick just one site so I linked the whole post!

Carve a Pumpkin App: From Parents Magazine grab this free app and have fun decorating your own digital pumpkins.

It’s the Great Pumpkin App: Pricey, but engaging book and activities to go with the Peanuts beloved tale.

First Words Halloween App: Spelling game using Halloween words!

A Storybots Halloween: Make your own Halloween music video with this app. Your students will love it!

Ever since studying with Katie Wood Ray at the @TCRWP summer institute in 1994, I have been obsessed with teaching with mentor texts. Now I've written a book about this topic, coming out next month! You can preorder it at

We kicked off our 3rd Grade PBL with a Firefighter, EMT, Nurse, and Police Officer visit and brainstormed how we want to show them appreciation for everything they do for us. The kids are so excited for the expo! We love our first responders!🚑🚔🚒🚨@HumbleISD_DWE @drlorielliott

It takes a big heart to teach little minds. Thank you teachers for everything you do to help us grow up smarter, stronger, and kinder. #WorldTeachersDay
