Happy Halloween!

What a great Halloween day!  We continued our Halloween theme with our morning preschool class.  We are reviewing the letters we've already learned and practicing reading our words.  We're getting closer to being readers!
 We had a blast in art today drawing a "Haunted House" and making "ghosts" in them.  Apparently the feet are ticklish!
 Our "Guess My Secret Rule" game has moved to shapes.  Today we had 3 of the same shape and 1 different.  We were identifying which shape was different and trying to verbalize why it was different.  Ex: "The triangle is different because it is a different shape."  This game will get much more difficult in the next coming weeks so I was glad they got this by the end.  At the end of the day we had a dance party and our parents joined us to do Frankenstein art.  It was so much fun!
 This afternoon we got busy with our reading lessons in our costumes.  It was great to be able to split the kids according to needs and get each group going on their lessons.  We practiced blending words, matching words, stamping words and identifying letter names and sounds.
 I love my set of texture sandpaper letters.  They are great to feel and explore as we make words.  I forgot hot much fun they are to use.  We also worked on the song "5 Little Pumpkins" and tried to mark all the words we know how to read.
 For art we also colored haunted houses, made ghost footprints and Frankenstein hand prints.  We danced and had a great party!
