Is it weird that I love Halloween, but don’t like dressing up in costume? I love picking out pumpkins and carving them with my children, decorating our house and watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” every year. It goes without saying that I love buying (and eating) Halloween candy. But wearing an elaborate costume has never really appealed to me. I do participate in our staff group Halloween costumes, but those aren’t too crazy. I hope I’m not the only oddball out there! 😉
Even though I don’t like dressing up, I love celebrating the season with my students. I love reading Halloween stories in the library and cheering when they walk by in costume during our school Halloween parade. They are so excited on party day that I’m also going to use these Halloween Call Number Quilts this year with my second through fifth graders. Students love to color and these will help keep them focused while reviewing the different sections of the library. There are six different quilts. Three of them are editable, so you can change the call numbers to suit the needs of your library. Check them out here: Halloween Call Number Quilts
Happy Halloween! To all of you who go all out with your costumes every year, I salute you!
