This packet is full of fun, engaging, standards-based math and literacy activities for kindergarteners that celebrate Halloween!!!
Topics include recognizing shapes, counting sets to 10, writing numbers, matching uppercase and lowercase letters and their sounds, rhyming, and writing letters.
Centers include the following:
1. Whoooooo Knows Shapes: Students choose two cards. If the two cards have the same shape, they keep the pair. Students keep playing until all matches are made. The person with the most matches wins. There are 2 different recording sheets provided, if you want to use them.
2. Counting Cows: Students choose a game-board which has the numbers from 0 to 10 on it. During each turn, the student chooses a card from the pile. They count the set on the card and cover the numeral. They continue until someone covers all of the numbers on the game-board. Three different recording sheets are provided to give options for your classroom.
3. Roll, Write, and Race: Students roll a dice and write the corresponding number on their game-board. Game-boards can be laminated or placed in plastic sheet protectors to be used over and over. There are eight game-boards to use; four allow students to write the numerals, while the other four have the students trace the numerals. There are also recording sheets provided, if you would like to use them.
4. Monkeying Around the Rhyming Words: Students play a matching and/or memory game with rhyming words and pictures. A recording sheet is included.
5. Candy Corn Match: Students match uppercase and lowercase letters, along with a picture that represents the sound for the letter. The teacher will cut each piece of candy corn into three pieces: one piece has the uppercase letter, one piece has the lowercase letter, and one piece has the picture to represent the sound. I would recommend beginning with only cutting one segment of the candy corn apart at first and only putting some of the candy corn pieces out at first. After students have worked with this activity for a while, I would add more letters and/or cut the candy corn into three separate pieces. There is a recording sheet provided, as well.
6. Halloween ABCs: Students will practice writing uppercase and lowercase letters. These pages can be laminated or placed in plastic sheet protectors. Students then write using dry erase markers. These pages can also be printed on regular copy paper for assessment or other practice.
I hope you find this product useful for your classroom!!
