Tricks & Treats: A Halloween Blog Hop and Giveaway!

If you have been directed here for the Tricks & Eats blog hop, welcome! I'm so  happy to see you here! I teach in French, so you will notice that I have a lot of French content - share with your French Immersion teachers! 

Je suis tellement heureuse de faire partie de cet échange.. j'espère que vous trouverez pleines de belles ressources pour embellir vos deux dernières semaines du mois d'octobre! 

Can I just first say that I LOVE Halloween! Dressing up in funny costumes is my favourite thing to do... This year, I'm going to be a tooth fairy! I'm keeping it simple because I just don't have time (or energy) to DIY a costume this year. I'm sure it will be a hit with my students anyways.. :)

At my school , there are several SEVERE allergies - for the past few years, ever since our board has became strict on the no-treat thing, I've supported #keepitteal and the #tealpumpkinproject. I put a teal pumpkin in my class to let students know that I do not hand out food treats due to food allergies. I tell the kids that if they see a teal pumpkin on someone's doorstep that this also shows that these people will give something other than food to kids who have allergies on Trick or Treat night. Some of my favourite ideas to hand out to my students are glow sticks, bouncy balls & Halloween light-up necklaces! 

Right now, my students are learning to associate numbers to number words. I've seen this floating around on Pinterest in English.. but have never seen them in French - so I made a set and I'd love to share these with you! They include recording sheets as well!  I hope you can put them to good use - Happy trick or treat to you!!
