I’m so happy to join The Classroom Game Nook in a “Trick or Treat” blog hop! Halloween is literally around the corner (one week away) and it’s time for teachers to go trick or treating with some awesome tips, tricks, treats, and more!
My nephew who is in kindergarten practices his sights words every night. After a few weeks, he got tired of doing the flash cards. I decided to play Tic-Tac-Toe using his sight words. He was more than willing to play!
Set up is simple! Make a large Tic-Tac-Toe board on some paper. Write the sight words in each box.
Write X’s and O’s on some paper or index cards and you’re ready to go! The first time around, I folded a paper in thirds and just traced the lines. Later, I made some boards, X’s, and O’s on my computer and printed them out.
You can save paper by drawing a Tic-Tac-Toe board on some paper and insert it into a Sheet protector. Use a dry-erase marker to write the letters. You can change the words any time with a eraser or paper towel. You can even insert 2 pages in one sheet placed back-to-back for 2 games in 1. You also have a carrying case for your cards and dry-erase pen!
When I think of Halloween, I think of all the sweets. In particular, candy corn. You can never have to much candy core! Here’s a sweet candy corn game for your classroom.
My nephew Isaiah loves adding numbers so here’s a fun Adding to 10 powerpoint game.
This Halloween themed game has students practicing adding numbers up to ten.
It’s played with dry-erase boards so it’s perfect for small groups. You can grab this wonderful freebie here. Be sure to grab it here:
Lastly, it’s giveaway time! Halloween’s a week away, but what about Thanksgiving? Once Halloween’s over, the turkeys go into hiding! You and your students can practice counting turkeys with this fun Counting Turkeys PPT Game.
Before the big Turkey Day comes, make sure your students know how to count! Students play against the teacher as they count turkeys.
Some turkeys are in rows while others are scattered about. Great for a Thanksgiving review game. You can check out this game here:
