2018: Ghost Craft


It has been awhile, hasn't it? Life and the school year got away from me so I'm taking advantage of the summer break to catch up on a few posts that I need to do for my 2018-2019 school year. This was a fun craft that we did to target and address labeling, expressive language, following directions, fine motor skills, and describing, to name only a few.

We always start with an overview of directions and expectations:


Here is what the finished product should look like:


I think I found this craft on Pinterest because I was looking for something simple that had everything I already owned so I didn't have to purchase anything for it because I already had glue, cotton balls, and construction paper on hand. 


We also used the research-based tool, Expanding Expression Tool (EET) to describe our ghosts. I used visual supports and aides on the smart board to help students who needed a variety of choices to help shape their answers correctly.


It is always important to have others that help support you in your lessons and I couldn't do half of what I do without my bestie, Rhoda!





The students were hard at work and really enjoyed making their ghosts. We eventually added a hole at the top and we hung them from the ceiling for the rest of the month (October) to make the classroom spooky for the holiday. I forgot to get a picture of that end result, sadly. Thanks for checking out our Halloween holiday craft!
