Good Sportsmanship is an important life skill. For this activity, I introduce these Halloween characters and talk about how their sportsmanship traits can add or take away from a game.
Introduction of Characters:
Fast Finger Freddy- Cheats when nobody is looking
Beaker the Mad Scientist- "Mixes up" rules when losing
Vladimer the Vampire- "Sucks the fun" out of any game
Mumford the Mummy- "Wrapped up" in everyone else's business
Wilda the Witch- "Stirs up" trouble
Boz the Bat- Goes "batty" when losing
Gus the Good Sport Ghost- Goes with the "flow." Has good "game spirit"
Use cardstock for best results
Print characters and cut out
Print character descriptions. Cut and glue on back of each individual character.
Also included in this download, is a headstone DEAD WORDS page. We give power to words by using phrases over and over. The DEAD WORDS page has phrases that we want to send to the graveyard and not hear again. The last two pages of the download include those phrases like, "That's not fair!" "They cheated!" etc. There is a blank headstone page where you can write your own ideas.
One idea to consider....I used a styrofoam headstone from Dollar Tree and used velcro to attach the dead word phrases.
I have included color and black & white versions of this activity. Please note that there are some slight differences of clipart between the color and b&w versions. The size of the characters are 7 1/2" by 7 1/2" not full page sizes.
