Thanks to Gaby for sharing her Halloween / Day of the Dead displays.
There is some interesting detail in them.
Here are Gaby's comments:
'This year I showed the students the difference between the traditions of Halloween and Day of the Dead. Mark the skeleton was dusted off from the science labs and adds a certain authenticity to the display!
Our students are enjoying colouring-in Day of the Dead masks, making Day of the Dead paper marigolds and watching ‘spooky’ movies in the library at lunchtime'.
It's the middle of October - time to think about ramping your displays up to something a little bit spooky!
I saw this display on Pinterest. It was nice and easy - I robbed my car and home First Aid kits for bandages (must remember to replace them) and stapled them onto the display board over some spooky cut-out eyes.
The lettering was adapted from free display lettering available through twinkl.
This creepy display from Michelle should inspire us all as we think about Halloween!
Here are her comments:
'The inspiration for this display came from a couple of different book blogs. One was on incorporating humor into library displays, and the other was on 10 books featuring creepy towns or creepy forests. “These Woods Give Me the Creeps” includes titles that feature creepy woods – perfect for October as we lead in to Halloween'.
The National Beekeeping Association of NZ started Bee Awareness month (BAM) in September 2014. BAM is devoted to encouraging New Zealanders to think about the honey bee and its critically important role in our biodiversity and economy.
Helen has made this fabulous display to support Bee Awareness Month and make her students aware of this important initiative. Here are her comments:
'The Bees hanging from the ceiling are made of cut up pool noodles with black electrical tape, google eyes and pipe cleaner wings. The articles on the wall are from The Wellington Newspaper 1st September 2016 titled Plan Bee, and The Life insert in the Dominion Post titled "The romance of Honey" 7 September 2016. The bees on the wall were black and white images photocopied onto yellow paper'.
