Halloween Word Wall Hunt

Hello Dear Blogger Friends,
           I apologize for my lack of postings these past few weeks. It just seems as though things never cease to slow down! It is a constant flow of planning, creating, preparing, correcting, filling, putting up, taking down... I know you all understand me... I take my hat off to all of you who do the same as me each and every day and still manage to post these wonderful ideas on your blogs, so consistently. It amazes me! How DO you do it?!?!
          Ok, so enough complaining! This is my opportunity to share with all of you! As I mentioned in previous posts, I absolutely L.O.V.E Halloween, and thus I greatly enjoy creating new Halloween activities each year. This evening, I shall share with you a game I made for a morning message activity. My morning routine consists of checking homework baggies and changing reading log books, and I refuse to have 19 students sitting around waiting for the day to begin. Thus, they arrive each morning to an activity that will get their brains working right away!
         This specific morning message activity consists of the students searching the room for Halloween words that rhyme, begin with the same letter, or contain the same number of letters as specific words indicated on the activity sheet. For instance, the students are asked to find a Halloween word that rhymes with "mat." They are also asked to find a Halloween word that contains the same number of letters as the word "happy." You can download this FREE activity sheet on my TpT page: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Halloween-Word-Wall-Hunt
          I am also including a free Halloween Word Wall to use alongside this game, as well as for writer's workshop, Daily 5, and/or various literacy centers. This is also a free download and can be found at: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Halloween-Word-Wall-Words

        You can print out the words, glue them to card stock, laminate and then place in various pocket charts.

          I like to scatter them around the room, as I encourage students to use this resource often and would like to refrain from having several students standing in the same place at the same time! This, as you must all be aware of, avoids much chatting as well as conflicts!
          While your visiting, you might as well download my free Halloween word folders! Check them out at: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Halloween-Word-Folders

       Once again, you must simply cut out the words and the labels, paste to a file folder and laminate. The students love to bring these handy little spelling helpers to their desks! Enjoy, and keep an eye out for more Halloween activities and ideas!
