I have been "boo-ed" and 95 Halloween Writing Prompts

I have been absent for a few days.  Yesterday, I drove four hours to go to the baby shower of one of my best friends.  It would have been a long day with a four drive home. However, I hit tons of traffic and my four drive turned into a six hour drive.  The only thing that made my drive decent was my audio book of Under the Jolly Roger, the third book in the Bloody Jack Series by L.A.  Meyer.  This series is fantastic!  I am loving it.  If you teach middle school or high school, you should read it.  If you are just looking for a fun read with a spunky, adventurous heroine, you should read it. Anyway, I left the house at 7:30am and got home at 11:30pm.  Today was a long day...

I have been "Booed" several times and for a couple different linky parties. 

First, I was "boo-ed" by SoS Supply for the linky party at Tori's Teacher Tips.

Here are the rules for the linky party:
1. Give a shout out to the blogger who booed you and link back to their site!
2. Share 3-5 October activities, books, products (yours or someone else), or freebie(s) that you love!
3. Share the Boo love with 5 bloggers- make sure you check this link to make sure you don't boo someone again:
And don't forget to tell them that they have been BOOED!
4. Link up {here} so that others can find you and read about your October ideas! And while you are there... check out the other great blogs!

I was boo'd twice for Cynthia's linky party at 2nd Grade Pad. I was boo'd by Emily at I Love My Classroom and Katie at I want to Be a Super Teacher.

Here are the rules for this linky:
  • Choose a fellow blogger that has MORE followers, another that has about the SAME number of followers, and last, someone that has LESS followers.
  • Highlight their blogs with links to encourage others to check them out. Don't forget to let your fellow bloggers know that you shared about them. 
  • Lastly, leave them some love by offering them a goody from your store as their "treat."
First, l will tell you my plans for some Halloween activities in my classroom.  Then, I will boo some other people.

I have been working on putting together some Halloween Writing Prompts similar to my 100 Back to School Writing Prompts and 100 Persuasive Writing Prompts.  There are 95 writing prompts and writing paper.

I am looking forward to using these this week and next.  It will be a lot of fun. I have included 95 prompts with lots of cute clipart (thanks to TpT) as well as writing paper.

Thanks to everyone's suggestions I also plan on reading several Halloween picture books.  The two I am most looking forward to using are:

I Need My Monster by Amada Noll

The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano

I want to find some cute Halloween Math activities.  I know there are tons on TpT.  Any recommendations?  I really would like to find some cute math puzzles or project ideas related to multiplication, division, or decimals.

I would like to pass on the boo to the following 5 people.  (I am combining the two linkies to pass on the boo).

Bridget at Little Lovely Leaders. - She has a fabulous blog with tons of great resources, including amazing freebies for the 7 Habits for Happy Kids.

Little Lovely Leaders

Kristin at iTeach 1:1 - She has tons of great technology ideas!


Ari at The Science Penguin - Ari has my favorite resources for Science on TpT.

Tammy at Life, Love, Literacy - She has great ideas for all subjects and has been a really supportive follower.

Nikki at Sent from my iPad - More great technology ideas!

All of these ladies will get a copy of my Halloween Writing Prompts and one other item of their choice from my TpT store.
