Share Your Favorite Halloween Resources On This Padlet for #FavoriteFindsFriday!

Halloween is right around the corner and it is time to gather up some freaky fun for your students and teachers too!  
Today for Favorite Finds Friday, let's share our Favorite Halloween Resources!  

You can use #FavoriteFindsFriday on Twitter and I have also created the Padlet above for all of us to share!  

You can go here to add your favorite Halloween resources too. 

And let me share some Halloween FUN to get us started!  I have added these things to the Padlet too. 
I brought together two Halloween Collections filled with reading, making, baking, singing, learning and writing fun! 

You will find the Let's Celebrate Halloween Collection for elementary students here.
These are two of my favorite new Halloween books from Cantata Learning.
Halloween and Monster Party...A Song About Drawing With Numbers from Cantata Learning.  These two stories are paired with music that you will find online to stream or download.

It is super easy for students to get to the music by scanning the QR codes found throughout each book.
Monster Party...A Song about Drawing and Numbers is from the new Sing and Draw Set by the dynamic team of Blake Hoena, Tim Palin and Emily Arrow.
I remember drawing things from numbers when I was young from Ed Emberley's fantastic books and the six new books in this Cantata Learning series are just as fun!

And they can sing along while drawing and learning about numbers....How cool is that!

I added the Monster Party video to the Let's Celebrate Halloween Collection so it will be super easy for your students to sing and draw monsters too. 
You will find all four of the titles from this series in the Sing and Draw YouTube playlist here.
These two series of Cantata Learning books, along with all Cantata titles, are available on Titlewave from Follett.
In fact, these books and more can be found on the October 31 Happy Halloween Titlewave List that our friends at Follett have put together for us.  

I just love looking through all of the wonderful books available for our readers for Halloween and the fall.  
Also, in the Let's Celebrate Halloween Collection you will find lots of educational and fun websites and activities including ones from PBS Kids,
 several from ABCya!,
 and a link to Buncee, where you and your students can create so many amazing digital stories for...
Halloween too!

Check it out and share this Collection with your students this month too. 
As for the librarians and teachers, I have created the Halloween Collection for Librarians and Teachers that you will find here.
It is filled with amazing learning, teaching, making, reading and sharing Halloween resources. There is definitely something for everyone here.

I will continue to add to both Halloween Collections and please let me know if you'd like to collaborate and share things on them too.  I will make you a collaborator...that would be fun.

Today, if you have any #FavoriteFindsFriday, please add them to the Padlet.  I will then add them to the Collections too! 

Happy October and Halloween, friends....I hope you find lots of ideas in this post and enjoy the month in your library and school too!
