Happy *almost* Halloween! This is one of my favorite, if not most favorite, holidays as a Speech-Language Pathologist. There are tons of amazing books, talking in creature voices, cute games, prize box treats, fun hats, etc.......I love it all!
Social skills and demonstrating good character traits has become a huge focus at my school. On every morning announcement we review our character trait of the month and social skill of the week. They also discuss character traits in their reading and social studies lessons. I enjoy being able to support students with these particular lessons as part of my inclusion schedule. Halloween seemed like the perfect time to review some of these same topics with my pull-out groups.

I ended up deciding on a mobile that is k-5 approved (even by my picky 3rd graders!). Much of it is driven by their choices, which is something that my students really enjoy after several hours of having to follow the class schedule. (I've noticed that many of the classroom crafts even turn out looking pretty uniform.) It took us about two sessions and a little bit of imagination dust to complete.
