Halloween Ideas

We have some pretty awesome SLPs in our school system!  They have graciously shared some of their activities with me so that I can share them with you.
First, some spider activities from Lynda:
(I think this one is self-explanatory!)
(I'm not sure why this picture is sideways.  I saved it right-side-up!)
Lynda said she also has a blank web that the students can write their own words on.  The students say a word, spin a spinner, and then put that number of spiders on the web.  (From Perkilou)
Megan provided these next 2 activities.  She found the big pumpkins at the Dollar Tree.  Her students worked together to paint the pumpkin and worked on their objectives while they were busy painting it.
 For the "Monster Hands", she is going to have her students trace their hands.  The fingernails are foam, and the "warts" are dried beans and pumkin seeds.  For every "wart", the students will roll the dice/spin a spinner and say their words that number of times.  She cuts out strips of paper with Halloween words on it using their target, and pull it out of a bowl.
I usually do this activity with my preschoolers every Halloween.  It's very simple, and they seem to enjoy it.  I have the bats and the pictures already cut out.  We review the pictures, and the kids pick out 4 pictures related to their objective to glue on the wings.  I manage to slip a book in the session, too!
I bought some stretchy skeletons a few years ago, but I have no idea where I got them from.  There are 4 skeletons in 4 different colors (for a total of 16 skeletons).  I put a plastic jack-o-lantern on the floor, and put a piece of yarn in a line on the floor.  The student stands behind the line, and tries to get his skeleton in the jack-o-lantern.  I did this with my preschool group, and they had to tell me where the skeleton landed (working on concepts).
