With Halloween only a few days away, tomorrow will be our Halloween celebration at school.
I have a few fun surprises for my students tomorrow, including some pumpkin and spider inspired math games and a monster design lab in the afternoon.
And they are so excited about wearing their costumes to school! So excited, that they convinced someone else to dress up.
And no…it wasn’t me (I didn’t need convincing.)
Meet Harold. A childhood friend of hubby’s who made an appearance in my classroom as Dr. Shrinkle, the amazing mathematician who made patterns shrink with his magic shrinking suitcase. It was love at first sight and my students have been showering him with so much love and affection that he thinks he is a superstar.
He’s pretty cute, don’t you think?
I will be attending the festivities as the dormouse from Alice in Wonderland (all of the teachers at my school are going as characters from this book, with minimal costume pieces the students will have to guess what story we are all from).
This is one time of year when I am extra grateful for my sewing machine (and glue gun!)
