I introduced the theme with songs, pictures, games and lots of singing!


the children made a ghost by gluing on cotton balls to black paper, Pumpkin cookie cutter stamping with black paper and orange paint, Witch- painted paper plate green, glued on hat, nose, teeth and black yarn for hair and Friday, we will make a Skeleton out of Q-tips.

Fine Motor

Witch baskets with small pumpkin eraser’s and tongs to practice grasp and open/close motions, practiced counting with Halloween pencils and pumpkin containers, Candy corn stickers w/ orange paper to peel stickers using fingers, and Friday we will do Candy Corn experiment.


We explored a pumpkin by cutting open and exploring the insides and took all the seeds out{all the children had a turn}, counting pumpkins w/ candy corn-placed each one on the number of dots on the pumpkins, Halloween treat bags w/ tongs and wrapped candy for counting and filling up bags
