FREE Jack-o-Lantern Glyph
Glyphs are so much fun to create in class. They are art, reading and math all bundled into one great activity. We have shared other glyphs here on BMTM and today are sharing a FREE Jack-o-Lantern glyph to use as we approach Halloween.
colored paper (orange, black, brown, blue, green)
Precut pumpkins from orange paper for each child OR create a stencil and have students trace and cut their own pumpkin.
Cut black paper into small squares for students to use to cut out shapes.
Cut out green and brown “stems” from paper.
Have enough black and blue paper for background for the children.
Completing the Glyph
Read each prompt on the template and have students decide which answer fits them. They then cut out the correct part according to the directions. For example, if Halloween is that child’s favorite holiday, s/he should cut triangle eyes from the black paper and add them to their pumpkin.
Interpreting the Data
After all pumpkins are complete, hang them on the wall or board and ask students such questions as:
How many children like Halloween best? (count the number of pumpkins with triangle eyes)
How many children like candy?
How many boys? Girls?
Then take it a step further and ask two part questions like:
How many boys think Halloween is their favorite holiday?
How many boys are left handed that like candy?
