BOO! THE FRIGHTFULLY FUN ALPHABET CARD GAME(COLOR 53/B&W 53)

Halloween Math and Literacy Activities

An engaging spin-off of the classic game Old Maid. Print these sheets out on cardstock (laminate for heavy use) and cut into cards. In a small group, shuffle and deal all of the cards. Players will sort through their cards, placing any letter matches face-up on the table.

Starting with the dealer, each child will takes a turn fanning out their hands so that the player to their left can draw one card. Some children may struggle to fan their cards, and that’s okay. Just make sure to emphasize that the children should try to not let the other players see their cards. As your students make letter pairs in their hands, prompt them to discard them immediately onto the table. Depending on how you’d like the game to play out, the player left holding the unmatched card, the BOO! ghost, either loses or wins.

HALLOWEEN ROLL & COVER SHEETS (COLOR 4/B&W 4)

Halloween Math and Literacy Activities

Print these sheets out on cardstock (laminate for heavy use). Provide mini erasers, pom poms, vase gems, or some other small manipulative for students to use as markers. For individual use, have the child roll the die, count the dots (or recognize the “set” of dots), and find and cover the corresponding number on the sheet. Repeat until all of the numerals are covered. In small group, give each child a sheet and have them take turns rolling the die. The first person to cover all of their numbers wins. Trade cards and play again!

CANDY CORN MEMORY GAME (COLOR 24/B&W 24)

Halloween Math and Literacy Activities

Print these cards out on cardstock (laminate for heavy use) cut, and mix them up. Place them in rows, face down. Prompt students to turn over any two cards. If the cards match, they keep them and go again. If the pictures don’t match, they are turned back over and it is next player’s turn. Encourage children to “take a picture with your brain” to help them recall what is on each card and where it is. The game is over when all of the cards have been matched.

HALLOWEEN COUNT THE ROOM (COLOR 10/B&W 10)

Halloween Math and Literacy Activities

These cards are to be used in conjunction with the Halloween – Count the Room worksheets. Print these out on cardstock (laminate for heavy use) and cut. Place the 10 cards (tape, clip, prop, etc.) around the room. Working with a small group, give each child one of the 3 worksheets and a writing utensil (clipboards are optional). As students discover each card, they will count its items and record the number on their worksheets.

St. Patrick’s Day Visual Discrimination Activity

St. Patrick's Day Visual Discrimination Activity

Here is a St. Patrick’s Day activity (free printable) that will allow children to practice their visual discrimination skills. Opposed to comparing a small group of 3D objects, children must rely on their visual discrimination skills to identify differences and similarities of images. It is important for them to hone these skills in order to strengthen their alphabetic knowledge; they will need to spot the differences between letters. For examples, “b” and “d”, and “m” and “n”.

For younger learners, it may be best to work with one line of pictures at a time. Try covering the others with a piece of paper.

St. Patrick's Day Visual Discrimination Activity

Once the child has determined which image is different from the rest, have him/or cover it with a marker. Gold coins work very well and are always popular! For further visual discrimination fun, check out the I Spy book series on Amazon.
