Happy Halloween! What a fun time of year when our students get so excited about their costume choices and all the CANDY! It can also be a very crazy week trying to keep our little learners excited in the classroom when so many fun things are happening after school like Fall Festivals, carving pumpkins and Trick-or-Treating!!!
I have some fun and engaging resources for you that will hopefully help you out in the classroom this week! You can find them all under the “Literacy and Theme” page under the “Halloween” category.
My “Halloween Mini Pack” is a great resource for literacy and math activities all with a cute Halloween theme. It has a fun ABC Order, Boo! Sight Word Game and Counting Write The Room plus more treats in store!
This “B is for Boo!” game is wonderful for letter or sound identification. It can be done in pairs or small groups. I think it works perfectly with a parent helper too.
At my school, we actually don’t celebrate or talk about Halloween but we celebrate Fall. Being a Christian school we have families who celebrate and others who don’t. These next two resources aren’t technically Halloween specific but they are great for this time of year.
My “Christian Jack-O-Lantern” resource is a great way to tie in a Christian worldview to your Fall or Halloween unit. It includes an activity that compares creating a jack o’lantern to how God creates a clean heart in us. Also included are color/bw sequencing cards with bible verses, a pumpkin prayer and activity response sheet. I love doing this activity with my kinders each year. You will find this activity on the “Christian Resources” page or by clicking the picture.
Being a “Dollar Spot Target Teacher” I had to find a way to use those adorable little spider rings I alway buy! My “Spider Postitional Work Book is perfect! This resource is a fun and engaging way to practice positional words. But don’t worry if you don’t have the spider rings. There is another option as well.
I hope you can use these fun resources in your classroom this Halloween and I would love to hear in the comments how you celebrate in your classroom!
Happy Halloween and Happy Teaching!
