Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. We are surrounded by learning opportunities involving literacy every day.

Here are some suggestions for incorporating literacy into your Halloween activities and traditions this year.

1.     Develop a candy chart prior to trick or treating. Include each child’s name along the side as a column and make columns in a row on the top of the chart of the variety of candy choices your children love!

  • Have your children count and record the amounts of each candy choice when you get home.
  • This is a great way to encourage reading things they know.

2.     Have your children decorate the house with signs they create. Make the decorations around the writing ghoulish!

3.     Point out the words all over the neighborhood indicative of Halloween. Your child is sure to have success with words they associate with Halloween! This encourages their brave reading attempts!

Have a fun and safe Halloween! Be sure to check out our segment!

We'd love to hear from you.
