I made ghost color sorting cards for color recognition and review. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
There are twelve different color cards and each card has six blank spaces for the children to put the matching color squares.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added a ghost number sequence puzzles.
I made a ghost alphabet match for letter recognition and review as well as fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper cut them out and laminated them.
I separated the ghost cards from the candy corn cards and set them out along with plastic coated paper clips. The set includes both upper and lowercase letters.
In this activity the children find the ghost and candy corn with the same letters and clip them together with plastic coated paper clips or clothespins. Play continues until all letters have been match.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added a ghost number match.
We are working on shapes and pre-writing so I made a ghost shape tracers that worked on both skills. There are eight different shapes included with this set:
I printed the patterns on regular paper and cut them out but you could also leave the pages whole if you did not want to cut. I set the tracers out with markers and the children traced the shapes.
Because our writers are beginners I used the thicker markers instead of the thinner ones to make controlling the marker a bit easier. If you would like the ghost shape tracing patterns you can download them here.
Here are some color clip cards that are great activity for color recognition and fine motor development. I printed the color cards on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated.
I set the ghost color cards out in a basket along with twelve clothespins. If you did not want to use clothespins you could use playdough or some other kind of cover-up.
In this activity children pick a ghost color card and put a clothespin on the same color that is on the ghost. Play continues until all color cards have been clipped. As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is ghost roll and cover is also located.
I made a ghost roll and remove activity for our math center. I printed the pattern on cardstock paper and cut out the ghost and glued it on to a black piece of cardstock paper. I put twenty purple pom poms (with self-adhesive magnets in on the back) on the ghost mat. Children rolled the dice and removed the same number of pom poms from the ghost mat. They continued until all pom poms had been removed. They also did this activity in reverse an rolled the dice and put the same number of pom poms on the ghost until all of the pom poms were placed on the ghost.
