Dr. Curry Bradach finds creative ways to celebrate Halloween. During early October, she had started two Halloween contests in her classroom. Her two contests consist of a candy corn guessing contest, and a pet costume contest.

The first contest she had introduced was the candy corn guessing contest. She had put a whole bag of candy corn in a jar after counting the amount. She then said that whoever guessed the right amount of candy corn, or closest to the amount would get the jar of candy corn and fifteen dollars for the book fair that following week. “I spent half the night watching The Voice while counting candy corn,” Dr. Curry Bradach said.

I spent half the night watching The Voice while counting candy corn.”

The second contest was the pet costume contest. She said that her students could photoshop a costume on their pets, photoshop a costume on a picture of an animal, or that students could use an actual costume for their pet. Almost the same prize as the other contest, she offered fifteen dollars for the book fair during conferences.

Dr. Curry Bradach announced the winners last week, on Halloween. The winner of the candy corn contest was Ariana Navarro with the exact numbered guess of 290 candy corn, and the winner of the costume contest was Abria Lautner with her bearded dragon dressed up as a party shark.

    The costume for the BeardedDragon was cute, I have a baby Common-SnappingTurtle, and I dressed him up as a famous fictional Japanese Turtle-Monster, Gamera!

  24. Brooks on November 15th, 2018 9:55 am

    I like the way you started the beginning. It gave me a lot of detail. I also like the quote off to the side.

  25. Joshua on November 15th, 2018 10:03 am

  31. Nathan Junker on November 15th, 2018 12:55 pm

    I never had Mrs. Curry but I wish I did her class sounds fun.

  32. Kelly Quach on November 15th, 2018 1:01 pm

    I loved the article and how fun this was to read! However, there were some repetitive sentences and some errors. For example, you had stated “Ariana Navarro with the exact guess of 290 candy corn,” but to those who are not sure of what candy corn is, they might think it’s a name or one of piece of something. Again, you did very well!

  33. Apollo Oase on November 15th, 2018 1:02 pm

    I think that this is a very neat way to spend Halloween. I also think that Dr. Curry Bradach is very clever by making up these challenges to get students into something different.

  34. Ruth Otto on November 15th, 2018 1:03 pm

    Dr Curry Bradach had to of had a lot of creativity to come up with great ideas. This engages kids into participating in classroom activities. This is a fun concept that we should bring to more classrooms. Doing activities that relate to things we are doing in the classroom can make learning fun and easier for some.

  35. Elizabeth J on November 15th, 2018 1:48 pm

    This article was much needed, wish I had mrs.curry this year!

  41. Victoria Vogel on November 15th, 2018 1:57 pm

    This seems like a great idea to get kids in the spirit of Halloween. I would’ve loved to do this last year. Even if I’m not a big fan of candy corn I would still take the prize cause i earned it but I would share.

  42. Adam Skillicorn on November 16th, 2018 9:07 am
