It’s almost October, and that means getting ready for the Halloween season. Making Jack-o-lanterns is always high on the list of Halloweeny activities, but getting the pumpkins and cutting them up can be expensive, time consuming, messy, and even dangerous when done at school. Why not try this color, cut, and paste Jack-o-Lantern worksheet instead? Not only is it simple and fun, it provides an opportunity to review vocabulary for shapes, colors, craft supplies, and even giving simple instructions. When they’re finished, hang them in the classroom for a colorful Halloween display that won’t draw flies or scare small children!
Here’s the worksheet and some color and cut shapes to get you started!
School Subject Flashcards are now available from the Vocabulary Flashcards page. They go well with the Weekly Class Schedule worksheet which can be found on the Worksheets page.
A good way to use them in the classroom is to drill vocabulary using the flashcards, incorporating the phrase “I have ____ class on ____days and ____days” i.e. “I have science class on Tuesdays and Thursdays.”
The worksheet can be used for a group activity wherein students take on the role of teachers and plan out the weekly schedule for their ideal school. Each group then presents the schedule they have made to the class.
This activity incorporates group work, active learning, and presentation skills, and is fun as well!
