Hello everyone! Happy November! And Happy National Novel Writing Month! Guess what?
But first, time for some Halloween Shenanigans. This year, Halloween fell on a teaching day, so I went all out and made it a fun day for my students.
First of all, I made everyone Harry Potter wands. It's quite an involved process that took the better part of two weeks to put together. You can learn all about the process here.
The longest and hardest part is filling the wands. After rolling the things, the instructions say to fill it with hot glue. But that took way too much time, so we stuffed them with tissue instead and just plugged either side of the wand with glue.
Here's the base for the wands. Most of them came out nice and skinny, but I had to make 66 of them (OMG) so some of them got skewed as I got tired.
To really add to the effect, I dressed up as a Harry Potter character this year for Halloween. Meet Professor Rachel Mcgonagall.
Go check them out. They have amazing things. XD
I got some pictures with my students as well.
So that was my Halloween. And now time for some brand new NaNoWriMo shenanigans!
How was your Halloween?
