Another Reason Why I Love October (A Pin It to Win It)


I LOVE October for many reasons...

The beautiful views outside my classroom window
My birthday
Fun Halloween teaching activities... Don't forget to link-up your
free or paid products HERE.
AND my favorite TV show makes its return...

The Walking Dead returns this Sunday, Oct. 12, 2014, for Season 5.
Do you know how many of my sixth graders LOVE this show also?
I was shocked!
In anticipation of the return of the Zombie Apocalypse (and to capture the interest of my Zombie crazy sixers) I whipped up a few fun, cute Zombie teaching materials. I never thought I'd use the adjective fun in the same sentence as Zombie, and thanks to Sara O'Shea of Educlips, I'm also using the adjective CUTE! Just click on the link for each activity to read more about it.

First up are a set of Zombie Grouping Cards.



Next is a Zombie ZAP Game to practice identifying Nouns, Verbs, and Adjectives.


Finally, here's a Zombified Scoot Game for practicing proofreading and editing skills. This particular product has been VERY popular the past week in my TpT Store. My sixers had the best time completing a scatter activity with it. I heaped on the fun by saying that zombies had gotten loose in our classroom and zombified my scoot cards. It was up to them to cure the cards and return our room to normal. Oh, the giggles and laughs!



To help me pass the time between now and Sunday when The Walking Dead Season 5 returns, let's play a little Pin It to Win It! Pin any or all of the Zombie images on this page or on the TpT product pages between now and when the show begins on Sunday. Then return here and leave the pin url in a comment below; for each pin, leave a separate comment. The more times you pin, the more chances you have of winning not one, but all THREE zombie products! Sometime after the show, I'll select a winner at random and send you the Zombie activities via email; please leave an email address with your comment if you are a "no-reply" blogger. That's it, easy-peasy!

Are you ready for the Zombie Apocalypse?

UPDATE 10/12/14

WOW! The premier episode of Season 5 of The Walking Dead did not disappoint! Great storyteller, lots of suspense, and loads of gory zombies... not cute ones like I've used in my products. LOL! Thanks to all of you who played my pin-it to win-it! The winner is...

  3. Angela,

    Here's to a HAPPY BIRTHDAY for you. Two of the most important people in my life also have October birthdays. My husband's birthday is the 13th, and my dad's birthday is the 31st.

    Your Scoot Game seems like an amazing way to get students interested in proofreading and editing.
