My Favorite Halloween Activity

I can't let Halloween fly by without sharing my all-time favorite Halloween activity!

This Jack-o-Lantern shape set can be used in so many different ways, so it is easy to use with children of varying ages and abilities.

Children can use the shapes to make any face they wish, or they can recreate the inspiration cards by recognizing the shapes that have been used, finding them, and placing them in the proper locations on the Jack-o-Lantern.


The set also includes matching cards, which children can use to play memory, or to match to the larger Jack-o-Lantern inspiration cards.


Finally, there are "find me" cards.  Children can work together to find the inspiration cards or matching cards with the corresponding shapes.


Every child in the class can enjoy the materials that are included in this set, and they provide a varieyt of opportunities to work on a number of different standards, including;

  • Shape recognition
  • Memory and recall
  • Peer relationships and teamwork
  • Following directions
  • Creativity
How would you use them?! Check the set out here and let me know!
