I use these Halloween activities and crafts with little ones who love Halloween and costume dress-up in the dramatic play area of class. The emergent reader, puppets, and poems give them more activities to extend their play. I purposely chose non-scary and kid-friendly costume characters for this resource which could be used all year long.
The emergent reader follows the predictable pattern of a costumed character and direction to use two colors to decorate the page. It also offers practice with the he/she concept which is sometimes confusing for early learners and ELL students. The final page is for the child to draw a favorite costume.
There are 13 styles of finger puppets in both color and blackline. (bee, cat, clown, cowboy, detective, dracula, ghost, ladybug, mummy, pirate, princess, scarecrow, witch,). All you need to do is print, cut, and tape around their fingers.
Seven poems (authors unknown) are also included on full pages to recite with the finger puppets!
Enjoy! ~Denise at PlayLearnTeach
