## Halloween Games & Activities With 2D Shapes

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.

This is a terrific companion to my matching “Spooky Shapes in a Haunted House” booklet, as children practice the same 2D shapes: circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle & hexagon.

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.

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.

Besides practicing 2D shapes, I’ve included activities that help reinforce graphing, making tally marks, patterning, ABC order, as well as “listening & following directions”.

Attributes of the shapes are practiced in “Dump It”, “What Shape is Hiding?”, “Let’s Sort!” and more.

“Where’s the Shape?” Witch Hat game, is a super-fun way to practice & whole group assess the “spatial directions” standard.

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.

Another favorite is "Shoe-bie Doobie": “What shape is in the shoe? Please take a peek and give a clue.”

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.

Completed projects make a cute bulletin board display, so I’ve included several posters to add some extra pizzazz.

My students also enjoy playing a file folder, cauldron game "Pick it and Put it in the Pot" in our math center.

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.

There are two featured FREEBIES today, as they both have to do with shapes. The first is a collection of 2D shape posters; the second is a set of 3D shape posters.

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.
