There are over 20, easy-peasy games & activities!

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.

2D shapes, hexagon activities 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape games, 2D shape assessments, 2D shape centers, Halloween party ideas, Halloween party games for school My young fives actually beg to play “Flip It!” so I tweak it a bit to use a version of this game each month.

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.

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. 

2D shape activities, So when I ask, "Does anyone want to make a haunted house shape booklet?" they are all over it.

“Open the door if you dare” and you will find 6 pages of “spooky-shaped” (real life) things to greet you.

spooky shapes in a haunted house 2D shape booklet, haunted house craft, halloween activities, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape centers, The basic 2D shapes covered are: circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle & hexagon.

I find that while most of my students can identify these shapes, many of them have a bit of difficulty identifying them, when looking at "real" items.

This booklet helps reinforce that in a super-fun way.

haunted house craft, halloween activities, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape centers, There are 5, different page set-ups, for you to choose from, so that you can easily diversify to fit the various skill levels of your students, while still having everyone work on the same thing.

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”.

2D shapes in a haunted house craft, haunted house craft, halloween activities, 2D shape activities, 2D shape crafts, 2D shape centers, As always, I’ve included black & white patterns for your students, as well as full-color templates, so that teachers can quickly and easily make a sample to share.

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.

Wishing you a wonderful week.
