Halloween Literacy and Numeracy

Here are a few activities that we've been playing with for the past couple of weeks.
Hallowe'en story stones.
Pumpkins with numbers to match and fill.
Hallowe'en fingerpuppets to match, sort and sequence.
Fingerplays to manipulate.
Our question of the week.

Sign of the week - spider

This week we will learn how to sign spider.
Definitely not a difficult sign to learn - cross your wrists and wiggle your fingers.

We'll be singing the "Eensy Weensy Spider" fingerplay.

The eensy weensy spider
went up the waterspout
Down came the rain
and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
and dried up all the rain.
And the eensy weensy spider
went up the spout again.
