Need some ideas for Halloween? Here are some different kindergarten Halloween activity ideas that you can try out this week :
Make a sight word pumpkin patch! You can use this activity with any sight word, and students can even cut out their own pumpkins! So easy and so fun.
I set up this fun Five Little Pumpkins STEM activity last year. Our students loved building a fence that could balance all five pumpkins on it.
Want to give a treat to your students, but you don’t want to give out candy? These super fun pointers are a fun way to encourage students to read, and don’t cost a lot to make- I just hot-glued a googly eye to a popsicle stick and taped it to the card!
You can download the card for free in my Resource Library!
A Geoboard Pumpkin is a fun way to practice fine motor skills. I hammered some nails into a pumpkin, and students used elastics to make designs.
Send a fun gift home with your students that doesn’t involve candy! Print out these punny cards and tape some crayons to them to make them into mini colouring pages.
Reinforce fine motor and counting skills with a spider web activity! Students roll a die and then use the tweezers to take that many spiders out of the web.
Cut pumpkin shapes out of orange construction paper and add loose parts. Students can have fun creating their own jack-o-lanterns.
You can also invite students to try coding a path using loose parts. I coded a path for the wooden peg doll to get to the pumpkin patch.
Play a simple counting game with your students with Halloween manipulatives. Students roll a die, then place that number of objects in their cup. They keep rolling and adding to their cup until it is full. Challenge students to try and count how many items it took to fill their cup!
