I love combining children's excitement about the holidays with an educational lesson. I think its a WIN, WIN for the kids and teachers.
Last week, I posted a couple of inexpensive Halloween Pumpkin Clocks for the kids to make with paper plates. You can read those posts here and here.
Here are two more! How about a Friendly Ghost Clock or a Spider Clock?

|Not So Scary Spider Analog Clock|
If you need directions, you can hop over to last week's directions for the pumpkin clock. You can find the directions here.
A trip to a Craft Store or even a Dollar Store can give you more choices for a Halloween Clock Theme. I think the Turkey stickers are available also if you want to start early and tie in Thanksgiving and a Math Lesson on Time.
If you want more ideas for using the Friendly Ghosts Theme with younger kids, you can get some great Montessori Ideas in a post by Deb Chitwood from Living Montessori Now. Just click on the link below.
If you want some more ideas for incorporating Spiders into your teaching lessons, you can read one of my posts by clicking the link below.
You can also visit my Pinterest Page about Spiders and Arachnids for more ideas.
Have a great holiday season with the kids!
