Happy Halloween!!

We had a terrific time getting ready for and celebrating Halloween at the preschool!  It is always so fun to see all these darling kids dressed up and SO excited! 

Each class had a party to celebrate which was full of fun activities, games, treats, and stories!  A big THANK YOU to all the parents who helped with the Halloween parties–from reading stories to overseeing games and providing fun Halloween treats and more, we appreciate your willingness to help!  Making Halloween shapes and jack-o-lanterns with Play-doh was awesome!
This class loved playing with our little plastic spiders!
A twist on Twister–Halloween style!  What fun!  Working on left and right and balancing!
Halloween Bingo complete with plastic spider markers was full of creepy fun!

Before snack time, we had a pumpkin walk!  It’s always fun to sneak in some practice with colors and numbers while the children just think they’re playing a game! ; )

I love Halloween stories!  And so do the preschoolers!

A Halloween party wouldn’t be complete without a tasty treat, right?!

Two Captain Americas!  Lookin’ good boys!
A couple of darling little animals!

Earlier in the week the kids got to make their painted pumpkins into Jack-O-Lanterns!  They had been looking forward to this since they painted them!  There were lots of great faces!

We learned “J” for Jack-O-Lanterns and practiced writing the letter and drawing shapes for faces.


Working on fine motor skills and eye-hand-coordination as the kids poked holes along the lines of a pumpkin.

The week of Halloween we worked on the letter “H”.  The Pre-Kindergarten kids made Hats- witch hats- and decorated them with the letter “H” and colorful stars.  The kids practiced their cutting skills for this project, which they are getting very good at!

Keep practicing letters at home with your preschoolers so all that we work on in preschool will stick with them!
