Lots of Halloween Freebies: Inspiration for Teachers

Inside: Some Halloween ideas for your classroom

This week’s inspiration is all about Halloween, my favourite time of the year! I’m not a costume girl, but I love all the fun activities you can do in the classroom with a pumpkin/Halloween flavour.

So here goes … 3 very cute Halloween picks.

Number 1 is a fabulous math freebie from Smiling and Shining in Second Grade.  There are 4 great math sheets with the cutest Halloween clip art. It’s perfect for third graders. Thank you, Shelly!


Elysse from Proud to be Primary has a wonderful Halloween writing activity that’s absolutely perfect for first grade!  This is exactly the kind of writing activity I’d routinely do when I had my own class, though her brainstorming chart is much cuter than any of mine!

This activity has just enough support for beginning writers and the whole haunted house aspect will be lots of fun. Be sure to click through and read all her instructions and grab your free template.


I have a weakness for colour by code sheets and this adorable Halloween cat from Fern Smith’s Classroom Ideas is no exception. A little math and some colouring — a perfect combination in my books!


Before I go, I’d like to share one more link, and that’s to my own collection of Halloween poems. You can grab 14 poems for free. Each poem has two versions; colour and plain.

If you click on the image it will lead you to my original post and from there you can grab the poetry package.

14 fabulous and free pumpkin poems for K-3. Ready to print and use right now!

Thanks for stopping by!
