I had a hard time labeling this Halloween reading activity because every child has his or her own road map to reading. My daughter is at the part of her journey where matching pictures and words are fun because she can immediately match up the first sound and then with the help of the picture sound out the remaining sounds in the word. This may be where your child is at, or maybe not. You can easily adjust this as a color match game, put uppercase letters in the house and give your child lowercase letters… the ideas are endless. I love using holidays to spark extra excitement for literacy activities like this and trust me it worked, she was super excited about this haunted house.
Gather your materials. You will need this printable <— click on this for the printable, some orange paper, a paper house from Micheal’s ( it’s in stores as I write this post in October), a marker, and scissors.
She paused at spider and skeleton and had to really think she slowed down and slowly said spider exclaiming to me that the next letter HAD to be p. Other than that she flew through this, which tells me I could move on to something more challenging pretty soon, but with full day kindergarten so new I won’t push anything quite yet.
