This Halloween themed activity pack includes fun activities that you can incorporate into your Halloween week plans in your Kindergarten classroom!
1. HALLOWEEN PRINTING
- Have students practice their letter formation! Print, laminate and set out with dry erase markers. In colour and B&W.
2. HALLOWEEN WORDS CHART
- I set these word charts out in our writing centre. Students can draw and label a picture using the chart or write a sentence/story. I usually set this chart out with whiteboards and dry erase markers, but I included some simple writing paper you can set them out with as well.
3. HALLOWEEN SIMPLE SENTENCES
- I put these out at the writing centre and with whiteboards to support independent sentence writing! Students read the sentences and write them on paper or whiteboards. 8 sentences are included.
The sentences included are:
- I like candy corn.
- The ghost is white.
- This is a jack-o'-lantern.
- I see a spider.
- He is a superhero.
- He is a monster.
- She is a pirate.
- She is a fairy.

4. HALLOWEEN DO-A-DOT

- J is for jack-o'-lantern.
- S is for spider.
- C is for candy.
- G is for ghost.
- B is for bat.
5. GHOST LETTERS
- Students will find the ghost letters (made of hot glue) in a bin of rice and trace or colour the letter as they find them. The printables have uppercase and lowercase letter options.

6. WHAT WILL THE TEACHER(S) BE FOR HALLOWEEN? CLASS BOOK
- At the beginning of the week have students brainstorm and predict what the teacher will be for Halloween! I cut out pictures of my face that they could glue on and they drew the costumes. The page is editable in PowerPoint so you can add your own name! I also included a cover so that you can make it into a class book and add it to your library!

7. CAN YOU DESIGN A FACE FOR OUR CLASS JACK-O'-LANTERN?
- Have students exercise their creativity by having them design a face for the class jack-o'-lantern. After students submit their designs, I have the students vote on their favourite and we carve it to match the design that had the most votes.

1. HALLOWEEN PRINTING
- Print, laminate and set-out with dry erase markers to encourage your students to practice their letter formation! Mat #1 has numbers 1-10 and Mat #2 has numbers 11-20. Both mats included in colour and B&W.
2. I See Spiders! Emergent Reader and Counting Book
This is a great differentiated literacy and numeracy activity to go with Halloween or your spider unit! Students can draw spiders or stamp spider bodies with their thumbs and add details with a marker or pencil. Then they will count the spiders and fill in the blank to complete the sentence.
There is also an option to trace the sentences and have the students stamp the matching spiders. There is an option for 1-10 spiders.

3. ROLL & TRACE SHAPES
- Print the dice template on cardstock and assemble to make a dice. Print as many mats as you need and laminate. Set out with dry erase markers.
To play by themselves: Invite students to roll the dice, say the shape name, find the shape on the mat and trace the shape. Keep rolling until all shapes are traced.
To play with a partner. Each student needs a mat. Invite students to take turns rolling the dice and tracing the corresponding shape. If the shape is already traced and they roll it again, they lose a turn. The first person to trace all of their shapes is the winner!
Shapes included are: heart, rectangle, hexagon, circle, triangle and square.
4. MY PUMPKIN PATTERNING BOOK
- Print, slice and staple to make booklets. There are a variety of ways to assemble these booklets. Students can colour the pumpkins to create the patterns.
Cover page + multiple pages of p. 49: This option will allow the kids to create and name their own patterns.
Cover page + pages 50-53: This option will invite the students to make specific patterns.
Cover page + pages 54-57: This option will invite the students to make specific patterns and trace the name of the core.
