LITERACY: SPOOKY I SPY LETTERS
Working on identifying letters? This fun “I Spy” activity with a spooky twist is an activity your child will LOVE!
Draw a large ghost shape on a sheet of white paper and label it with letters. Fill a shallow dish with dyed black water (dark juice works too). Set the dish on top of the ghost paper and place a clear glass in the dish. Have your child move the glass across the dish to hunt for letters. When they come to a letter have them identify its name, sirund, and if ready write it on a sheet of paper.
MATH: GHOST EYES
Draw multiple ghost outlines on a large sheet of paper. Label each with a number or math fact. Have your child identify the number and add that many googly eyes to each ghost.
