H is for Halloween Packet

**Updated:  All links are working now!**
If you're new to Oopsey Daisy, I recently decided to combine my 2 favorite roles--teacher and Mommy.  Every week, I teach "Mommy School" to my 20-month-old Little Man.  It's an adventure teaching a toddler, but every week, we focus on a theme, letter, number, color, and song. I absolutely LOVE Mommy School!
This week, we finished up our "L is for Leaves" unit in Mommy School.  We did a whole lot, but I was not a very good photographer this week.
I am super duper excited about this upcoming week in Mommy School.  Halloween was always my favorite time to teach, and Little Man is just starting to really enjoy the holiday.  So the next couple of weeks are going to be FUN!  I have compiled a gigantic 60-page packet this week!!  And yes, it's a printable packet that you can enjoy with your little ones at home!  I have gotten very little sleep this week as I compiled this packet, trying to have it done so we could enjoy it as much as possible before Halloween rolls around!  So I am crossing my fingers that you'll enjoy it too!!
In this packet, you will find:
* Halloween learning games and activities
* Tons of Halloween art ideas.
* Halloween Science, Math, and literature connections
* Food Ideas
* FOUR flannel board stories with corresponding visual aids
* Book ideas
* Songs and fingerplays
* Halloween party ideas for toddlers
* Ideas for the color, number, and letter of the week.
* TONS of visual aids and learning activities ready to go.
Honestly, there is no way I could do all of these activities in even 2 weeks.  However, I wanted to compile everything in one packet so I could have all the ideas in one place for years to come.  So choose some of your favorites to do with your own little one this week!
Some of my favorite ideas in this packet are these Halloween movement cards:

You can use these cards with your kiddos to get out the wiggles in a "spooky" way!

Just a note:  This packet took an incredible amount of time to create! I want to share this with you because I believe in teaching our little ones at home.  Please review the credits on the back page of the packet so you can see where I searched for ideas!  Also, I would love to hear about your learning fun if you use this packet!  Then I can tell my husband that the late nights were worth it!  :) 

You can download your own H is for Halloween packet here or here on Scribd.

Just a note...
* I am forever grateful to DJ Inker's for allowing me to create fun learning tools using their products!!

Have a "spooktacular" week with your kiddos!

    YOU ARE AMAZING!! Oh my goodness, thank you, thank you! I'm a 2nd grade teacher and now a mommy to an almost 1 year-old. I LOVE when my Google Reader says Oopsy Daisy has a new post. When I tried opening the big Halloween file, it said that file isn't valid when on the Share site. Maybe it's just me?

  3. Doty Family says:

    I can't get it to work. It says the link is not valid???? I love your stuff. I've been downloading all of your fun ideas for awhile. I truly appreciate all your hard work.

  30. Elyssa says:

    Thank you SO much! I really appreciate these posts! I have a 2 year old son who is a sponge and is absorbing EVERYTHING and these posts have made teaching him SO much easier! Last week we did A is for apple… and autumn, so I kind of combined two of your posts into one. He had SO much fun! I'm looking forward to doing this weeks activities, although, I think I may change it so it's P is for pumpkin… and potty… just to introduce him to the idea of using a potty! But thank you so much for making these ideas so easy to use!

  31. Jackie Koll says:

    Thank you so much for this! I have printed the visual aids and am putting my lesson plan together for the next two weeks – one week focusing on the Halloween things and than one week on some of the other things. I am so excited! Your hard work is so appreciated. I taught older grades so I didn't get into all of the early learning stuff and you have really taught me a lot in just the few lessons you've done. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!

  32. Deb Chitwood says:

    Thanks so much for the wonderful activities! I especially love the Halloween movement cards and colors book. I featured your Halloween packet at http://www.facebook.com/LivingMontessoriNow

    By the way, to Cara, when you click on Save, before you click on the second Save, look at the top of the download screen for the location. There's a drop-down menu so you know where the download will be or can choose a different location on your computer.

  33. The Rowleys says:

    LOVE THIS! I try to do the same thing with my 2yo but its so hard to search the blogosphere for projects-this makes it so much easier! We try to do one special craft/activity a week but I can totally ramp it up now. Thanks!!!

  34. Henckel House says:

    This is so AWESOME! I wish I could type awesome in a larger font! I read the other comments and I got it to come up without problems! I just can't wait! I haven't started "school" with my 2 year old yet, but this seems like the perfect start. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

  35. Holly says:

    WOW! This is great! Thanks for all the hard work you put into this and for sharing! I am excited to start my "mommy school" and to share this with my little man. Thanks again.

  36. Jamie says:

    Just found your blog and I am amazed and impressed! I am a teacher (but of 6th graders) and have wondered how to be a better parent to my 2 year old. I am not very crafty, but I really appreciate your ideas and downloads that make it easier! Hoping to implement some of these ideas this week!

Can't wait to add this one, it looks like the quickest and easiest to use.
