1-2-3 Come Do Some Halloween Color Activities With Me
While reading some Halloween books with my grandson Kaiden this afternoon, I noticed that I could find a Halloween-themed "thing" that represented all of the colors my Y5's needed to learn. I was inspired to whip together this little Halloween Colors booklet; a matching spinner game soon followed.
No matter what I did, I tried to cram at least 3 other standards into any activity that I dreamed up for my Y5's, so that I'd get more bang for my time.
With that in mind, this Halloween-themed easy reader has students read the simple sentences, (chock full of Dolch Words), correct the beginning capitalization, and then add end punctuation.
Children trace, write and color the color words and matching pictures.
There are teachable moments for pronouns and plurals, because of the way I set up the sentences.
For more practice, there's a color word matching worksheet.
I've also included a "favorite colors" graphing extension to toss in a bit of math.
The spinner color game, matches the story. Students pick a partner and take turns spinning the color wheel.
Whatever color they land on, they have to remember the Halloween-themed "thing" that was that color in their booklet, and then color that object on their spider web coloring page.
You can use the game as an assessment tool for comprehension, or assist little ones by hanging up the answer key poster.
Either way, both of these activities make great additions on Halloween party day, as they are quick, easy and fun, yet Common Core based.
Thanks for visiting today. Hope you can stop by tomorrow for a few more FREEBIES. Right now it's time for me and one energetic 2-year-old to clean up our messes.
Wishing you a day filled with giggles and precious moments.
