Halloween shapes and emotions

Since Halloween is this weekend most of you are probably celebrating today or tomorrow. If you're looking for one more really great Halloween activity for your celebration look no further! This is one of my all-time favorite Halloween sets because there are so many different ways to use it, making it something that every single child in your class can benefit from. 


This shape practice set includes three activities to do with the included printable cards. Children can use the Jack-o-Lantern mats to practice visual discrimination and recognizing shapes. Cut out each Jack-o-Lantern mat and the extra face pieces on each page. Then ask students to match the extra pieces to the shapes that they see on the Jack-o-Lanterns. It also includes a blank pumpkin so that students can create their own Jack-o-Lantern. 



The set also includes Jack-o-Lantern cards that are perfect for matching. Children can look for the matches or play a memory game with them to build social skills. You could also have students sort them by asking them to find all of the Jack-o-Lanterns with round eyes, or all of the Jack-o-Lanterns that have triangles. 


The question cards are perfect for informal assessment. Each card asks students to find a Jack-o-Lantern containing a specific feature. These can be used with the large Jack-o-Lantern mats, or with the matching cards, depending on the size of your group and the children’s skill level.
