Happy Halloween from my speech room to yours. We have been doing festive activities for the last few weeks so of course,  this week was no exception.

The kids had a great time learning about Spookley and why it is important that we are all different and special. I downloaded the Spookley story app for $1.99 and used the iPad to tell the story to the kids (much more exciting than me!) This story is great for targeting shapes and colors, comprehension, and social skills.
I created my own Spookley out of an empty cube tissue box!

After we read the story, I let the students choose what shape pumpkin they would like to be: square, circle, triangle, or rectangle. They were then able to decorate their pumpkins however they wanted to. I asked them, "If you were a pumpkin, what would you like to look like?" They had a lot of fun with this! I also attached a little note about Spookley and why the pumpkins were all different shapes and colors (so mom and dad didn't think I was crazy!)

Have a very Happy Halloween!! What did you do today?
