Quick and Fun Halloween Activities

It is getting closer-  Halloween!  Unfortunately, that means progress report time is close as well, so quick games that can be played while kids get lots of practice on each goal is important.  This week, we have been using some of these games.  Check them out!

First is a fun game called spooky eyes.  I read about this on, of course, Pinterest!  Here is the original link:
I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but the dice is a soft big dice from Lakeshore.  I copied the eyes into Publisher and made them bigger so I could slip them into the cube to make rolling it more fun (and quieter).   First student to collect all of the different colors of spooky eyes wins!

The other thing we have been doing is playing an old school box game on the SmartBoard (using pumpkins for the dots) to draw boxes.
Each student chose a pen color to make their lines and eventually their initial inside to claim a box once they place the final line that makes a square.  No SmartBoard?  No, problem!  This can be done on paper the same way.  Practice your goal, add a line!  Easy and simple.  Not to mention a great way to keep others in a group busy while you collect data one-on-one with a student.
