Halloween Pre-K Pack

The time is here and I am SO excited!  Today I am releasing my FIRST EVER Pre-K Pack!  Nathan has enjoyed doing many tot/preschool packs courtesy of some of my favorite homeschool sites, such as 2 Teaching Mommies, 1+1+1=1, Homeschool Creations,  Our Little Monkeys, and Lawteedah!  I am excited to be able to start offering them as well.  I have so many ideas and can’t wait to start them, but I wanted to get out a Halloween Pre-K Pack done for Nathan and for all your little ones!  I hope you enjoy it and would LOVE to hear what you guys think!

Here is what is included in my Halloween Pre-K Pack:
Prewriting Practice Sheets
Cutting Practice
Which one is different?
Finish the Pattern Sheet
Size Sequencing Sheet
Halloween Strip Puzzle
4-Piece Puzzles
Sorting Practice
Counting Practice Cards
Color the Pumpkin
Letter and Sound Finding Cards
3-Part Vocabulary Cards
Shadow Matching
 
 
We also have a Halloween Pre-K Pack Expansion available for kids that may need a little more challenge!
 
**Update 10/15/12** We also now have a Hotel Transylvania Pre-K Pack available that would be great during the Halloween Season!  Enjoy!
 
For those of you that are new to Pre-K packs, here is what I do.  My #1 suggestion would be to get a Crayola Activity Center!  This has been a big saver for me, because I don’t have to laminate everything.  I just print it on cardstock and Nathan can switch the documents out.  These documents would be the Pre-writing sheets, Which one is different and Color the Pumpkin.
 
 
 
 
Anything that is going to require a lot of handling from the kids I like to print (on paper or cardstock) and laminate it.  I use this laminator and these laminating pouches!
 
 
 
The puzzles or anything that needs to line up I generally put a piece of magnet tape on the back after I have laminated it, so he can use a cookie sheet to match them up.  Before I started doing that he would get frustrated when they wouldn’t line up or stay together good.
 
 
 
These scissors are the best thing ever for the cutting practice sheets!  They have a switch that basically makes it so the scissors spring open after they have made a cut.  So, it trains them to have the “open, close, open, close” motion.  Nathan doesn’t need to “spring” anymore, but he still prefers it.  It makes it much easier for him to have control of where he is cutting!
 
I store all the Pre-K packs that I have completed in these and file them in the file cabinet.  That way when we have a slow day or Nathan is bored we can just pull one out!

prepare and store them!
 
If you have any questions, let me know! Enjoy the Pre-K Pack!

    >Thank you Amy!

    Oh and Dawn… I use Adobe InDesign to put the packs together! I'm still learning how to use everything, but my hubby is a Web and Graphic Designer. So, I at least have some handy to bug when I need help! haha 🙂

    >Dawn- We haven't really had any issues with our Crayola Activity Center. The only time I've had to get a paper towel wet and clean it was because the dry erase marker got left on it for a couple days. I actually find that the Expo WASHABLE dry erase markers come off the easiest. Even easier then the Crayola ones.

    Hope that helps a bit and a BIG THANKS for all your support with this Pre-K pack and for posting about it. I really appreciate the support!

    Hey, I also want to ask about the Crayola Activity Center. I was really tempted to get it, but then I read some reviews that said you should only use Crayola brand dry erase markers on it because other brands don't clean off of the screen very nicely. It looks like your son is using Expo markers…do they erase well on the Activity Center?

    >Pam, this is SO cute. You did a GREAT job! What program did you use to create your pages? I use Photoshop Elements, as that's what I have. Looks like you've got something a bit more professional?

    Anyway, I think I'll "advertise" for you on my blog because you did an AMAZING job at creating a first preK pack.

    By the way, your little guy is ADORABLE and I love his faux-hawk! 😉

    We don't do Halloween at our house, and I'm almost disappointed…as I really adore this pack! 🙂 I'm looking forward to whatever you do next because I really want to give it a try! 🙂

    >These are SOOOOO adorable. I posted your site to all of my FB and Twitter followers. I don't have a preschooler anymore but we're watching one tonight. I think we'll do some of these activities even though Halloween is a little ways away. Thanks so much for your adorable content.
