Halloween Themed Morning Basket
Themes make me happy, like REALLY happy! I love a good theme and I love tying everything into a good theme. I also love holidays and celebrations. So given the opportunity to tie a theme and a holiday together and chances are I will go over board. This months Halloween themed morning basket is one of my favorites to date!
October’s Halloween Morning Basket Picks:
For bible, we will be using the Indescribable devotional it is one our absolute favorites. It combines bible verses, scientific facts, and prayers is such a beautiful way that is easy for children to understand.
For logic, we are using Spot it Halloween! Game, this is such a great brain training game that helps with critical thinking skills while still be so fun to play.
For journal, we will still be using our Q&A a day for kids. This is going to be such an amazing keepsake to look back on and I am so glad we have kept up with it for almost a year now.
For memory work, we will be using the flash cards from this French Halloween Pack.
Our read aloud books this month will be Castle Hangnail, The Best Halloween Ever, and a stack of picture books (post coming soon).
For the language arts loop we will be reading poetry from It’s Halloween, doing Halloween Mad Libs, and writing our own spooky stories.
For the geography & history loop we will be reading through National Geographic Kids Halloween, which gives a great history and explanation of Halloween practices, National Geographic Celebrate Halloween, which is a beautiful deception of how Halloween is celebrated all over the world, and reading the folk tales in A Year Full of Stories.
For the art & music loop we will be using these adorable Directed Drawing Printables that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers by from Little Red. We will listen to Halloween music while we draw too.
For the math loop we will be using some Halloween Math Task Cards that I found on Teachers Pay Teachers by Lucky Little Learners. I added some cute Halloween mini erasers from Target to use as manipulatives as well.
For the science & nature loop we will be using Exploring Nature with Children. This is a year long curriculum that dives deeper into a topic each week it also includes a book list, poetry, music, and artwork as well. While this is not Halloween themed the topics for October are autumn leaves, autumn pond study, autumn tree study, and pumpkins so I thought it was still very fitting.
I also have the Rooted Childhood Autumn Guide that we will be pulling handicrafts out of for our morning basket time as well and because we LOVE games I added in Absolute Dice Halloween too.
