Are you as excited about Halloween as I am? My daughter has been decorating our house slowly since the first day of school in August! I am thrilled to be back in the PreK classroom to see my 4 and 5-year-olds get excited, which lets me use their excitement for motivation to learn. Here are a bunch of PreK Halloween crafts and activities I will be trying to fit into my October lesson plans this year! You can follow me on Instagram to see a peek inside my PreK classroom.
