National Candy Corn Day…How fun!


I just saw the cutest post by Jungle Learners celebrating National Candy Corn Day.  Who knew there was such a thing?  I figured why not highlight it on my blog too.  After all, Mel from Graphics from the Pond has an adorable candy corn set that I’ve been wanting to use anyway.

So just how can you celebrate National Candy Corn day?  Well, how about these cute pins and freebies.  We all love them don’t we?

Now we’re ready for a little reading fun.  How about this freebie from A Modern Teacher.  You can use it with any book, but I’ll leave you with a few suggestions shortly.

To complete the language arts block, you have to add in a little writing.  How about teaching your students how to write opinion papers with this neat activity from Teaching with Passion.  (We’re working on these now, so I know my students would enjoy it.) 
Now what would you like to read with your students??  Here are a few recommended books to add to your collection for the day.

Since I can’t find any science or social studies related activities, you will have to make time for art and cooking.  Here are a few fun pins to try out.

I will leave you with two funnies to enjoy. The second might be one you hear at school, but we hope not. 🙂

Now…go out and eat some candy corn to celebrate!
