Halloween Word Matching for Kindergarten through Second Grade!
This game is super easy to set up and is easy for students to play on their own. Just print and give students the directions.
Kids of all ages will learn that words go with pictures early on. Matching allows students to find try to sound out the words and find the pictures that go with the words in a fun way. Some of the words may be challenging for kindergarten, but that is why peer teaching and cooperation is encouraged with this game.
Vocabulary words encourage print concepts in young children. Students see print in familiar words and associate print with “real” concrete meaning – therefore enforcing practical value to “LETTERS AND WORDS!”
Students are encouraged to help each other. Peer coaching shows true understanding of materials.
Finally, there is a paper in this packet for students to write and illustrate words in their centers to show teachers and parents their learning. *Accountability!
You may use this reward system, work in teams, or a tally mark system. Slides are provided for both options.
Take a look at the preview. And keep teaching and learning fun while incorporating the holidays into your teaching.
