It’s the 15th of the month, and I have a new post with some friendly ghost learning fun at PreK + K Sharing! Today, I’m sharing the link to free printables that I’ve used to create Montessori-inspired ghost activities for preschoolers through first graders. While ghosts aren’t a typical part of the Montessori curriculum, many progressive Montessorians like me enjoy using friendly ghost activities before Halloween to make the holiday less scary for preschoolers … and because they add interest and fun to learning activities in October.
At PreK + K Sharing, I tell where I got the materials and how I used the printables to prepare the Montessori-inspired ghost activities. I also have links to other posts with additional ideas and presentations.
Here’s the link to my article at PreK + K Sharing: Montessori-Inspired Friendly Ghost Activities.
Below are the activities with links to the printables used. Be sure to go to PreK + K Sharing for the complete activity!
