For the last couple of weeks we have been doing some misc Halloween fun through out some of our days and have also added some new Halloween work to the little boys shelf in our school room. I am doing things differently this year with our trays instead of adding many new trays each week, I am choosing a few of them and adding them to our shelves and only changing the other activities once or twice a month.

Making these changes has helped me be more accountable for getting the trays out and putting the stuff away, as well as given me other activities that can be used during our afternoon time when they little boys are starting to get ansy and need something to do to keep them out of trouble 😉

Here are the Halloween stories we have been reading during our school time. We have a bunch of other Halloween books that are up in the boys room for bedtime stories. There are quite a few books about bats since Ethan has been enjoying learning about them lately.

Open and Close containers is always one of the boys favorites. So I added some to our Halloween Shelves, I put some mini plastic pumpkins and Halloween rings inside of the containers. We spend time counting the plastic pumpkins or rings, making patterns with them, playing store with them, or anything else the boys come up with.

A transfer activity using orange dyed corn. I have decided that as much as I love setting up the transfer activities the boys never use them, so they probably won’t be on our shelves anymore. They get plenty of transfer work using our sensory bins anyway.

This activity was a hit with the boys. Some Halloween straws and Halloween colored pom poms. They use the straws to blow the pom poms across the floor. This activity has been taken off the shelves every day since it was put out.
