Ghost writing in preschool

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on October 21, 2011

in Ghost Writing, Halloween

We tried a little ghost writing in our class. You can call a process that you do many times by a different name and add perhaps a different color of paint and suddenly the process is very new and interesting once again…

For each child, I placed a small amount of white tempera paint in a black Styrofoam tray. The children used cotton swabs to make their ghost writing on the black tray…

I also set out black construction paper for the children either to add some ghost writing on the paper…

Or they could make prints of their ghost writing on the trays…

Most of the children tried it both ways…

By repeating a process, the children get more proficient in the process. By modifying the process to reflect a new season, holiday, or other interest of the child – the children stay more interested in the process…

Here are some of our ghost writing prints that I saved and put on the wall..
