1-2-3 Come Do Some 2D Halloween Shape Activities With Me!
Halloween 2D Shape Games, is perfect for your October math centers, table top, early finishers, or a sub tub.
There are over
Do them as a whole group, with partners or as an independent center.
If your students are like mine, they will absolutely LOVE games like “Flip It!”, “Clip It” and “Slap It!”, which makes them perfect for your Halloween party day too.
Likewise, "Slap it!" is another whole realm of fun, where children use a flyswatter. Again, because they love the game so much, besides the shape cards, I also use letters, numbers, & word cards throughout the year.
Attributes of the shapes are practiced in “Dump It”, “What Shape is Hiding?”, “Let’s Sort!” and more.
Use the “Shape Up!” extension activity, to assess how well your students listen & follow directions, as they create & color their own witch hat, which they later use to play the game.
It’s a whole group-circle game, which reviews a variety of standards.
The witch’s shoe is an easy-peasy craftivity, teachers can whip together in just a few minutes.
“Grinning Pumpkins” is another quick, easy & fun whole-group activity, which is a simple way to assess students ability to not only “shape up!” and identify the shapes, but reinforce their listening skills in an interesting way.
I know your students will have a great time with these activities, as they are "kid-tested".
Teachers will enjoy the low prep, selection, diversification & the fact that you can use them each year in a variety of ways.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hooray it's a sunny day, so time for a much-needed break to go on a nature walk.
The leaves have just started to change color too, one of the many reasons that autumn is my favorite season.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Halloween Shape Activities With Me.
October is filled with all sorts of fun shapes, so with that in mind, I designed this cute, haunted house, 2D-shape review.
I don't know about your students, but my kiddos get super-excited over doing any sort of activity that I can tie in with Halloween.
“Open the door if you dare” and you will find 6 pages of “spooky-shaped” (real life) things to greet you.
I find that while most of my students can identify these shapes, many of them have a bit of difficulty them, when looking at "real" items.
This booklet helps reinforce that in a super-fun way.
OPTION #1: Students simply color the shapes on each page.
OPTION #2: Students write down the name of the shapes on that page & color them.
OPTION #3: Students get an additional strip of paper with one extra shape on it.
They color the single object on their page, as well as all of the objects on this strip.
Afterwards, they cut the objects out & glue them to the matching shape page.
OPTION #4: Students color all of the objects on their extra worksheet. (This is a half sheet.)
They cut each of the 6 sections out (following the dashed lines), then glue them to the matching labeled page.
OPTION #5: These pages are all blank.
Students write the name of the shape on the bottom line, then draw one “spooky shape”.
After students color their haunted house, & the pages you have chosen for them, they trim and collate their booklet.
You decide if you want students to glue the "door" pages together, or simply staple them.
If you're looking for something educational and that “something different” for your Halloween party day, this works well.
I’ve also included several other related activities, so that you can extend the lesson and cover more standards. (Woo Hoo!)
This is an easy-peasy and fun activity for your Halloween party day too.
The "Tell me an answer" question page is a simple, whole-group assessment, you can use after students complete their haunted house.
I’ve included several posters to add some extra pizzazz to your display.
They are great for early finishers, a fun homework assignment, or something for your sub tub.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
We're having our third day of rain, and while that certainly fits the mood for designing Halloween activities, a little ray of sunshine would certainly boost my energy level.
Wishing you a wonderful week.
