Halloween for Kindergarten {Simple, Fun, and Free!}

I'm back today sharing some more ideas on Halloween for Kindergarten! Do your kids love games that involve spinners? My class does, every year! Which is why I created the It's All Fun and Games series. I'm not sure if it is because they think it's cool to make their own spinner...or just the fascination with paper clips in general.

Nonetheless, let's put that excitement to good use with some Halloween games. These are fun, engaging, and a great way to get kids working cooperatively and building social skills at the same time.

Students need a paper clip and a pencil to make a spinner. I used these fun pumpkins and small erasers I found in the dollar section at Target. (You can get similar ones by using my affiliate link and purchasing yours through Amazon by clicking here.) Students take turns spinning the spinner and putting that many candies in their pumpkin. The first player to fill their pumpkin is the winner!

You don't need to use the objects I have pictured. You can use what you have. Just be sure that the size of the container and manipulatives are proportionate. A game with too big of a container and small pieces will take forever to finish. While a small container and with large manipulatives will be over in a snap!

Here's a game you can use to practice letter sounds or beginning sounds. Students play with a partner. Each student will need small erasers, snap cubes, etc to cover the letters on their board. They take turns spinning the spinner. You can either have students make the letter sound or name a word that begins with that letter. 

If the student can say the sound or name a word correctly, they cover the letter on their board. When it's their turn again, if they land on the same letter, they lose a turn. The first player to cover all of the letters is the winner.

Halloween Activities for Kindergarten {with FREEBIES!}

Oh my word. Can you believe we are already talking Halloween? And right after Halloween comes Thanksgiving. And then it's Christmas. And then it's 2017. So that means it's practically 2017! Woah let's slow down. Today I'm just talking Halloween activities for Kindergarten! Thanksgiving and Christmas will come later.

Halloween took on a whole new meaning for me back in 2007. In the wee hours of the morning, I became a mom to my sweet Delaney. Thanks to her we always have something special to celebrate on Halloween. 

When planning my Halloween activities for Kindergarten, I try to keep it light and cute. We don't do vampires, skulls and mummies. I stick to pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, spiders, bats, candy, etc. It's just my personal preference.

Here's a look at some of my favorite read alouds for Halloween.

You're going to love the great Halloween activities for Kindergarten included at this post! You'll find great Halloween book recommendations for young learners, letter sound practice, uppercase & lowercase letter practice, counting numbers, letter formation, ten frames, comparing numbers, making five, number order, rhyming, syllables, beginning sounds, and MORE math & literacy fun! Did I mention there are FREE items for you to download too? Click through now to get yours to use all October long!

If you're looking to add to your classroom library, you can click on any of the titles below. By clicking you are using my affiliate link, which takes you to Amazon where you can purchase the book(s). 


Here's one of the activities we do to practice letter sounds. This activity comes from my new Bippity, Boppity Brew {Let's Make Some Alphabet Stew} packet. It's a fun, interactive activity and the kids really look forward to it. It works great for large group, small group, or a time filler activity. You know those times when everything is cleaned up, you've got ten minutes left before lunch, there's not time to start a new lesson...this is perfect for that.

Students recite the chant while one student picks a letter from the bucket, bowl, or cauldron. You can have students sit in a circle and pass the container around or sit in rows and call one student up to the front of the room. While the students are reciting the chant they help by making a stirring motion with their hands as one student selects a letter. The student identifies the letter and makes the sound and we all make the sound. Then they put the card back in the pot, stir it again, and then pass it on to a friend.

Uppercase and lowercase cards are included. You can use all uppercase, all lowercase, or a mixture of both. I also included the A, B, C picture and the large cauldron to help jazz up your chant. I used rubber cement to glue on the pictures.

After laminating the poem, I cut a small slit in the cauldron and put a paperclip on it. This is where we display the letter that we are working on.

If you're not wanting to write out the poem, don't worry! Also included is a typed up copy. This would be great for displaying on a Smart Board, document camera, ect.

Also included in this packet are follow-up pages. This makes a fun small group activity. Just print the page and slide in a page protector. (A lowercase version as well as an uppercase version are included.) One person will pick out a card and make the letter sound. Students determine which letter makes that sound and uses a snap cube to cover the letter. This would also be a great activity to use all of those small Target erasers that we are all collecting!

Speaking of Target erasers...here's a few Halloween activities for Kindergarten that I made using items I picked up in the Dollar Spot.

First up is this "Trick or Treat" activity. I found these small pumpkin containers and candy erasers in the Dollar Spot.

This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. To use this activity individually, students will read the number on the pumpkin and put that many candies in the pumpkin. 

To play with a partner they pretend to go trick or treating.  One student selects a pumpkin and reads the number. They say to their partner "Trick or treat. I need three sweets please." Then they hold the pumpkin for their partner to place that number of sweets in the pumpkin. This is reason #472 why I love teaching Kindergarten. The silliest and smallest things make them excited about learning.

I added tweezers so students can get some fine motor practice, but you don't have to. You could have students use plastic spoons to scoop up the candy erasers as well.

This time it's a literacy freebie I made using the erasers I bought at Target. I used the pumpkin ones, but you can use any that you have handy. No erasers? No problem! You can use snap cubes or even play dough with this activity.

Included in the download are uppercase letter cards. The letters include directional arrows to show students how to correctly form the letters. Just print, laminate, and cut apart the letter cards then put the work mat in a page protector and you've got an easy peasy center.

Students select a card and put it in the square located in the upper right corner. Following the directional arrows, they use the erasers to build the letter. When they are done, they clear the board and select a new card.

I love when we can practice two skills with one activity and that's just what's going on here. Students identify the number on the ten frame card and write it down. Then they count on to fill in the numbers that come after.

Students count each set of objects and record the number next to the picture. To differentiate this activity, you could have students color the picture that shows the greatest number or the least.

Students are comparing numbers with this activity. They count each set of objects and dab or color the picture that shows less. Next to each picture, you could have students record how many of each object is shown on the card.

Making five practice. Bingo dabbers, crayons, or colored pencils work great for this activity.

Here's a spook-tacular number order activity. Students put the numbers in order and record them in the space provided. A number line is included at the top of the page to help students.

Here's a simple rhyming activity. All words are CVC words, which makes it a little bit easier for kids to hear the rhyme. Students are shown a series of three pictures. They say the name of each picture to determine which two rhyme. They dab or color the rhyming pair.

With Costume Kids students are matching the uppercase letter to the lowercase letter. They identify the uppercase letter on the card and then dab (or color) the matching lowercase letter. I love the Do-A-Dot brand bingo dabbers. But if you don't have dabber, don't worry! You can use my affiliate link to pick your own up at Amazon by clicking here

Sweet Syllables can either be completed with crayons or bingo dabbers. Students say the name of the picture to determine the number of syllables. They dab or color the candies to show that many their answer. Sorting mats are also included.

This activity is a class favorite. I think it's because they get to use markers with it! Students select a letter card and find the spot where the lowercase letter belongs. They trace or write the lowercase letter to match the color on the card. There's also a recording sheet version with all of the letters filled in, which makes differentiating a breeze!

This activity is great for kids who are still working to master beginning sounds. Students are shown a series of three pictures all beginning with the same sound. They say the name of each picture to determine the beginning sound that they all have in common. They record the letter to show the beginning sound.

DIY Easy and Cheap Erasers for Whiteboards

Today I'm sharing a DIY quick, easy, and cheap tip for erasers for whiteboards. I don't know about you, but I NEVER have enough erasers for my classroom. They are always disappearing...kinda like socks in my house!

Last Friday night I posted the picture below on Instragram about my hot date with felt and how I was spending my evening making white board erasers. I received several e-mails and messages asking me about this project. So I wanted to elaborate a little bit.

Is your classroom constantly out of erasers? This post will help you learn how you can easily DIY cheap and easy erasers for whiteboards! All you need are a few materials, a little time spent cutting, and you'll be set to go in no time. Click through to see how you could use this for your preschool, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th grade classroom. (Make sure to check the tip out on how the erasers can even be used to pick partners!)

I bought the felt at Wal-Mart for $.23 a piece. You can find these felt sheets in the craft section. I get a variety of colors and I'll explain below why I do that. The darker the colors, the longer the erasers go without looking dirty.

(Make sure to check the tip out on how the erasers can even be used to pick partners!)

 I get about $10 worth of felt and spend one evening cutting while I watch TV. (This is an easy project to get your significant other to help with!)  When I make these, I make A LOT so that I don't have to constantly make them throughout the year. 

I keep these erasers for whiteboards in various spots in my room (centers, small groups, whole group carpet area) so we need a lot to keep all of those areas stocked! After they're cut, I put them in a plastic storage box with a lid and just pull out fresh pieces as we need them.

I cut each piece of felt in to nine pieces. I should edit that sentence to say nine uneven pieces. They're like snowflakes, no two erasers are the exact same size and shape. But however you cut it, that's 9 erasers for $.23 cents!

(Make sure to check the tip out on how the erasers can even be used to pick partners!)

I get multiple colors because one of the ways I use the different colors is to pick partners. I keep two of each color in a special container for partner work. I quickly walk around the room, have each student reach in and pick a color, they find the classmate with the same color eraser and that is their partner for that activity.

You can toss these erasers after they get dirty. OR You can get a mesh laundry bag and toss them in the washing machine!

Fire Safety Activities and Centers for Kindergarten

 During the month of October there is so many themes to cover. It seems like there's never enough time to get everything in. There's community helpers, fire safety, fall, and so much more! Today I'm going to share with you some fun fire safety activities and centers for Kindergarten

Here's a look at some read alouds that are perfect for Kindergarten.

I love the book Alphabet Rescue. Although it's not a "fire safety" book, it's an adorable book about letters taking a ride on a fire truck!

And of course, no fire safety week in Kindergarten would be complete without a craft!

Here's a sample of our fire safety craft. Didn't this little guy turn out adorable? I love crafts where each one looks unique. They don't all turn out looking identical, and that's okay! 

I give students various sizes of square and rectangle pieces of construction paper and model for them how to cut off the corners. (We also practice this earlier in the year when working on our scissor skills.) The best part about this craft, is there is no right or wrong size. It doesn't have to be perfect. 

The red body is a 9x12 piece of construction paper cut in half. We round two corners to make shoulders.

The head is a 9x12 piece of construction paper cut in sixths, so one piece of paper is enough for six students. We round four corners to make a head.

The red hat is about a 3x3 piece of paper. Then I cut red small strips just a little wider to make the bottom of the hat.

The yellow strips are 3x6. I tell students to cut them apart (and I show them how). They don't ever come out straight across or the same size, and I think that's what cute about this craft!

For the hair I give them a small rectangle and let them cut to size. Some like shorter hair, some like longer hair. I model how to make both. 

Then we draw on the eyes (you could use wiggly eyes), a mount (you could use pink paper), and the black pieces on the jacket (you could use black construction paper).

Here's a few activities from our fire safety week. These fire safety activities and centers for Kindergarten come from the packet Stop, Drop, and Learn. Included are 14 center activities {7 literacy centers, 7 math centers}, 2 picture sorts, and several fire safety printables.

After we sort the pictures as a class, I put the pictures in a pocket chart center. Students complete the recording sheet as a follow-up activity. We use bingo dabbers, but students could certainly use crayons as well.

Here's one of the no prep fire safety printables included. I love this page because it is awesome for class discussions and it helps students know what to do in different situations. I think it's so important to have discussions with kids about "what if", so they will be prepared if or when the time comes. We complete this activity as a class and talk in depth about each picture and situation.

Here's a look at some of our fire safety centers for Kindergarten. All of the centers come with "I Can" visual directions, to promote independence.

(This is also a great opportunity to discuss what is an emergency and what is not an emergency). Students can dab the number sequence or use their pointer finger and a stamp pad to show the number.

This fun little math partner game makes an easy peasy center. Each group needs a dot cube and their own color came piece. Students start on the fire hydrant. They take turns rolling the dot cube and moving that many spaces. 

Towards the end of the game, students need to roll the exact number to reach the end. For instance, if they need to move two more spaces to finish the game, they must roll a two (or a one to bring them closer). The first player to reach the end of the firefighter is the winner.
