We've Been Boo'd!

This cute little candle and figurine were left with a bag of sweet snacks for my Super Stars last week, along with an anonymous note letting us know we'd been BOO'D:
After the treats were devoured, the Stars decided they wanted to keep the Halloween fun going by boo'ing two more classrooms!  We assembled bags of candy and crafty materials (spiderweb, banners, foamy pumpkins and stickers) and reprinted the Boo note:


With only a few hours left in the school day, my Super Stars had to become S-n-e-a-k-y Stars, tip-toeing down the hallway, searching for two classrooms yet to be boo'd:

We found a second grade class' and our Sixth Grade Buddies' rooms empty, so the bags were quickly deposited and we made our escape!

To quote a student, "Mrs. Sommerville, we **so** boo'd those kids!"

Want to join in on the fun?  Visit or print out this poem:

The air is cool, the season fall,
soon Halloween will come to all.

Ghosts and goblins, spooks galore...
Tricky witches at your door.

The spooks are after things to do,
in fact a spook brought this "Boo" to you!

The excitement comes when friends like you,
copy this note and make it two.

We'll all have smiles upon our faces,
no one will know who "BOO"ed whose places!

Just two short days to work your spell,
keep it secret, hide it well.

Please join the fun, the seasons here,
just spread these "BOO's" and Halloween cheer!


Include a sheet of paper with a friendly ghost illustration that reads:

You have been BOO'D! Please keep it going by following these directions:
1)  Enjoy your treat
2)  Place the BOO sign on your front door or visible in a window
3)  Within 2 days, make 2 copies of this note, make 2 treats & 2 BOO signs
4)  Secretly deliver to 2 classrooms without a BOO.
5)  Keep an eye on nearby front doors to see how far and fast it spreads by Halloween.
