More Halloween theme coloring pages for early readers.

The idea I had in mind when I started making coloring pages with simple sentences to read was for my daughters to color a page a day and hold me accountable to do something extra with my oldest that would also be age appropriate for my youngest as well. To be honest my plan didn’t stick and instead I give my daughters generally five different coloring pages a week that they color mainly at the end of the week. They’re great for the weekends to get in a little reading time when my oldest is addiment on reminding me that the weekends aren’t for learning.

For the last week of October I made another set of Halloween theme coloring pages. Free printable below each coloring page image.

Halloween art using cool and warm colors.

My oldest daughter has been learning about warm and cool colors in aspect of art. In order to further reinforce the subject we made Halloween theme art together. I allowed her to pick out the supplies she wanted and to choose what she was going to create with a Halloween theme. When it comes to art I allow her to freely express herself. She gets discouraged and can be quite stubborn during school time therefore when we get to art I allow her to take control. I offer up an idea of what we are going to make and allow her to figure it out from there.

She chose to draw Frankenstein and a witch.

The supplies she chose to use were a total of two paper plates, orange construction paper, markers, and glue.

For Frankenstein she picked out a paper plate and markers. She chose green, blue, and purple to draw Frankenstein. We talked about the fact green, blue, and purple are cool colors.

For her witch drawing she chose a paper plate, construction paper, and markers. She glued her construction paper onto the paper plate after she finished her drawing. We discussed that the orange background, and the red words she said were “ha ha” were written in warm colors. The witches body outlined in green I then re-emphasized is considered a cool color.

I chose to make a paper plate zombie with the help of my youngest daughter. I focused on cool colors for my Zombie plate art. To fully reinforce the concept to my oldest daughter. Having kids with a four year age gap means I have to try to engage them both at the same time while trying to stick with both their levels. My youngest is exposed to much more than my oldest was at her age. She plays with markers, tries to steal the glue sticks, and scissors therefore I use the toddler scissors to be safe. She enjoys art time and always our art time ends in a huge mess to clean up at the end.

When my youngest grew bored of sticking the green pieces onto the plate she then grabbed markers and began to make her own art on another paper plate.

My youngest daughters two favorite colors are yellow and pink.

Thanks for stopping by LearningWithNanaHedgehog.com. Please remember all activities are meant to be done with adult supervision. I know especially right now it can be tough sticking through all the craziness with kids. The mess of art cleaning up all the supplies, markers all over the place, paper scraps all over the floor I just remind myself it’s worth it in the end when my kids proudly hang up their art work excited about what they created. Not everything has to be perfectly structured and sometimes it’s just nice to let kids express themselves in a way in which they learn and get their emotions out in a healthy safe way. We can all just do our best, and keep trying to find what works best for our kids because not all kids learn in the same way.

Halloween theme coloring pages for early readers.

For the month of October I’ve been making Pumpkin and Halloween theme coloring pages with simple sentences for my daughters to color and read throughout the month. Each week I choose five to share with them. My oldest daughter enjoys coloring as we read the sentences together. She often cuts the pictures out after coloring for additional scissor practice.

Enjoy five fun Halloween theme coloring pages with simple sentences for early readers.

Color learning Halloween theme puzzles.

Currently with my youngest daughter I’ve been working on color recognition. While my oldest is learning to read the written word of colors. With Halloween soon approaching I decided to make a fun Halloween theme color puzzle for my daughters as extra practice. I printed out the puzzles then laminated for extra durability. My oldest then helped me cut out all the pieces.

My youngest daughter almost two can stay interested in the activity for several minutes before kicking all the puzzle pieces around with her feet and laughing. At her age my focus is to make sure that I am exposing her to the basics because the more exposure the quicker and better it will sink in. Her Halloween puzzle I printed out in colorful ink that way she could match the colorful word to it’s matching colorful image.

My oldest daughter enjoys puzzles. She’s always proud of herself when she matches up the words correctly to their pictures. Since she’s in Kindergarten a huge focus is reading therefore I chose to use black ink for all the words. I wanted her to put the work in and actually read each word rather than see the visual color.
