This is a very cute book by Cynthia Rylant about a cat that loves Halloween. We created cat art and then wrote about 3 reasons why we like or do not like Halloween.
The art idea is from the book Art for all Seasons. I traced the head and body and then they cut paper for the rest. We folded a strip of paper and then cut the corner to create the fence.
This is my sample.
We also learned about bats and then made a paper plate bat.
We are working on tally marks in math and I found this cute bat activity to go it.
