Hello Friends of Pyramid Early Learning Center,

It’s almost Halloween!

  • This week we will be practicing the routine and safety rules of trick-or-treating every day!
  • When practicing at home, we suggest practicing in 5 steps
    • Walk to door of house
    • Knock on the door
    • Say “Trick or Treat”
    • Get 1 piece of candy
    • Say thank you
  • Have fun when practicing at the home! Hide behind a door and put on any costume pieces you have! This week we have been using stickers as our “treats” in a bowl.
  • This week will include tons of pretend play, an important component of childhood development. I love this article discussing the educational benefits of dramatic play.
  • We’ve been using Halloween books, but even pictures on your phone of people in Halloween costumes can be a great tool to increase predictability. We use language such as, “I see they are dressed up as a dinosaur. They are pretending to be a dinosaur. We can pretend to be dinosaurs. Rawr!”

Always reach out to the Pyramid Early Learning Center for visuals, tips and tricks!

All the best,
