Halloween typing and word search

What to do with this activity?

Your child might like to practise typing and spelling with this fastmoving online game called The Typing of the Ghosts. Banish a ghost with every word completed!  

If your child enjoys word searches, here are some tricky online Halloween themed word searches. You might like to work on them together because they are difficult. 


  • Why am I doing this?

    Writing is like a muscle – the more your child practices it the stronger their writing ability will become. You child is also more likely to write about things they like or are interested in – writing is a way to express yourself and using writing in this way can be more meaningful to a child.

  • How can I do more?

    Decide on a writing project you could work on either together or with you standing by to help. This could be writing or sending an email to a family member or friend living away or your child writing about one of their interests. List key messages you want to write about, who else might read it and then begin work on the piece. Have a dictionary at the ready and use the spell checker if working on a computer.
