Today we had some "ghostly fun" with rocks!
Check out our adorable Rock Ghosts:
These are SUPER EASY to make and are just the cutest little decorations to have around the house. I am hoping to make more Halloween themed rocks this week - pumpkins, monsters.... my mind is going!
What You Need:
fun ghostly shaped rock
black permanent marker or paint
What To Do:
1. Paint the rock white and allow to dry
2. Draw eyes and mouth using black permanent marker or paint
Seriously, that's it!
Ridiculously Easy = PERFECT for Little Hands
Of course, I always have to sneak in some learning fun.
Ghostly Math Fun
Using one of our foam cubes the Lil Divas rolled the dice to get two numbers for their addition problem. I had some cute ghost erasers that they used as manipulatives to help with the addition/counting as needed.
For these, I provided the math problems on the ghosts and they used the ghosts erasers to practice simple subtraction.
Number Word Matching:
Using the same ghost templates I made a simple file folder matching game where the Oldest Diva had to turn over a ghost card, read the number word and match it to the correctly numbered ghost in the folder.
Ghost Counting & Number Recognition Practice:
The Littlest Diva practiced her number recognition using numbered ghost cards and our ghost erasers.
Color Word Review:
Since I have been working with the Oldest Diva on her color sight words I thought this was a great opportunity to practice in a fun way with this simple file folder game I made. One one set of ghosts I wrote color words and the other set were colored in matching colors. The Oldest Diva had to flip a color word card, red the word and match it to the correctly colored ghost.
Next, we are delving into the fantastic world of spiders! :)
