Have I mentioned that I love Halloween? There are just so many fun things you can do with this theme! This week, we used the book We're Going on a Ghost Hunt by Kris Hirschmann.
As you may have guessed, this book is similar to We're Going on a Bear Hunt. However, this story lands you in a haunted house surrounded by ghosts! (But it's not too scary for the little ones).
While reading the story, I focused on the prepositions (over, under, through, etc.) and had the students illustrate using their hands. After we finished the story, we grabbed my little ghost stuffy and took turns following directions and/or using prepositions:
After the story was OT time! Our occupational therapist had kids make these chalk rubbing ghosts. Didn't they come out cute? As a bonus, we got to work on the preposition "around" while making these!
If you want directions for making the chalk rubbings, let me know! What's your favorite Halloween or ghost-themed book?
