I’m a bit behind in blog posts, but the good news is that a little prep work from last year will pay off for this year! You can find all kinds of links for October activities, including Powers of 10 Day (October 10th) and Halloween, in this Wakelet I started last October. I’ve added a few new links that I got from MakerEd, TCEA, and Ditch That Textbook, and will continue to add more throughout this month. I also recommend that you check out the “Holiday Ideas” page on Big Ideas 4 Little Scholars, as Donna Lasher has a nice monthly list of activities that she keeps. If you find any broken links or want to recommend a resource I’ve missed on my Wakelet, please comment below!
I have a third grade student who brings a pad of sudoku puzzles out to recess each day. Any time there is a possible treat on the horizon, some of my second graders call out, “Can it be a sudoku puzzle?”
So if, like my students, yours also love these logic puzzles, here is a Halloween Sudoku you could try this week. It could be fun whole-class on an interactive white board, or as a station. Be sure to click on the settings gear on the bottom right corner, so you can choose the appropriate level. Something that I like about this particular site is that, once you finish, you are given another challenge – so it’s not just a one-shot deal.
