You'd better hurry for this if you want to make some good use of it for Halloween!
Amy over at Teach Mama has created a variety of Halloween themed Grid Games for her children and is happily sharing them with you.
What's a Grid Game? I'll let Amy explain it to you, The premise of this game is super-simple, but the early literacy skills it reinforces are really worthwhile. The goal is just to fill your board with small objects--that's it. The way players do that is by counting their way through each row, depending on the number rolled on a die or the number flipped on a playing card. There's lot more detail about ways to play on the Teach Mama blog too.
Not only are there pumpkins but hats and cats as well. So go grab these and have some very spooky fun with your little ones.
