Halloween Fun

This week Wes and I did some fun Halloween activities.

1. We made scented dough ornaments in Halloween shapes. We painted them, put seasonal ribbons on them, and gave them to our friends and family.

2. We did this fun alphabet game. Wes had to match the letters (visual discrimination).

3. We played this Halloween grid game from Teach Mama. For counters I used glass pebbles that I found in the craft section at the Dollar Tree. Wes loved this and we have played several times.

4. Here are the books we have been reading. We planned to do the following activities to go with them. However, this incident sidetracked us, so we didn't finish them all.

Go Away, Big Green Monster!

Sam is currently reading Clementine.

Clementine is having not so good a week.
- On Monday she's sent to the principal's office for cutting off Margaret's hair.
- Tuesday, Margaret's mother is mad at her.
- Wednesday, she's sent to the principal. . . again.
- Thursday, Margaret stops speaking to her.
- Friday starts with yucky eggs and gets worse.
- And by Saturday, even her mother is mad at her.
Okay, fine. Clementine is having a Disastrous week.

Gracen is having fun with Go, Dog. Go! (Beginner Books).

Whether by foot, boat, car, or unicycle, P. D. Eastman's lovable dogs demonstrate the many ways one can travel. The new text emphasizes the concept element of the original while maintaining its rhythm and charm.

Selena use to love Go Dogs Go. It's funny she has hung all those books from a year ago up, and doesn't show much interest in them anymore. Off to knew things now!

The Oraments idea was great! I am sorry to hear about your son's accident. Hope he will recover soon.

Thanks for linking to me. The Room on the Broom sounds like a fun book - there is always next Halloween. I was contemlating making that shape witch, but reconsidered since Anna doesn't enjoy coloring. Wes did a great job putting the witch together.
