Halloween can have too many frightening images for lots of children. I always worked to keep Halloween fun and non-scary. I’m happy to have found Montessori printables for preschool through early elementary that focus on the fun of Halloween in a non-scary way.
Disclosure: I’ve been given a copy of the Every Star Is Different materials to review. My opinions are honest and my own. This post contains affiliate links (at no cost to you).
I’ve loved all the materials I’ve used from Every Star Is Different. The Halloween printables are perfect for classroom or home for preschool through early elementary.
Go through this link to find the individual Montessori-Inspired Halloween Printable Packs from Every Star Is Different!
Here are the awesome Halloween materials available from Every Star Is Different:
I just started using the Halloween printables yesterday with my 5½-year-old granddaughter, Zoey, 21-month-old granddaughter, Sophia, and 18-month-old grandson, Caleb.
Below, I’ll show just a few of the activities we used, although many, many more are available in the materials from Every Star Is Different!
Montessori-Inspired Halloween Jack-o-Lantern Printable Pack
- Teaches emotions using jack-o-lantern faces and compares them with children’s expressions
- Introduces geometric shapes as found on pumpkins during the Halloween season
- Provides a step-by-step guide on how to make a jack-o-lantern with true to life images
Caleb loves matching all sorts of things, so I gave him some of the jack-o’-lantern faces to match. There are many jack-o’-lanterns included in the pack, so we can keep adding to the difficulty!
Sophia is very interested in emotions and will often gently touch the picture of a child in a book who’s crying. First, we talked about the children’s expressions. Then, we talked about the jack-o’-lantern expressions. These images can be used as 3-part cards. But this introduction was perfect for a young toddler. Caleb joined us for part of the emotions work, too.
Montessori-Inspired Halloween Animals Printable Pack
- Introduces children to true to life animals associated with Halloween
- Includes adjective and preposition activities that help enhance grammar skills
- Provides practice with counting, graphs, greater than/less than concepts, and more
I’ve mentioned in other posts that I’m focusing on cursive with Zoey along with her manuscript printing work. I love that “My Book of Halloween Animals” is available in a variety of levels of difficulty as well as in manuscript or cursive.
Zoey loved looking at all the photos of black cats in the pack. She read each of the sentence strips with prepositions and matched the strips to the pictures.
Montessori-Inspired Halloween Language Bundle
- Includes twenty-four (eight of each) beginning, intermediate, and advanced words associated with Halloween
- Features only true to life Halloween concepts and ideas
- Images and concepts are kid friendly
Zoey already reads, but we often reinforce phonograms using the Montessori green series. Instead of using clothespins or glass gems to mark the Montessori beginning work, I got out our tea candles as markers for the Halloween words. Of course, I didn’t leave the candles out because of the batteries and toddlers. But it was a fun variation on clip cards!
These Halloween packs are all great for home or classroom use!
