Halloween At Spark Talk Includes 'Winnie The Witch'

October 15, 2016

It’s finally fall, and that means that along with pumpkin spice being everywhere, Halloween is nearly here! It’s a great time to explore dress up play with your child, and to read classic stories about witches, ghosts, and goblins. At Spark Talk Speech Therapy, our favourite Halloween story is Winnie The Witch. We love reading about her misadventures with her feline friend, Wilbur. In fact, we are such fans of this amazing story that we are putting the finishing touches on new Winnie The Witch themed activities. Some of our favourite new activities include a guessing game and a game featuring scrambled sentences.

We encourage parents to pick up a copy of the book (which is available in stores and online) to enjoy the story with your child. The plot of the story is simple, but a lot of fun to read. Winnie is a witch who has a black house and a black cat. Unfortunately, when Wilbur, her black cat, closes his eyes, she can’t see him anymore. What is a witch to do? The short book has a wide variety of uses, from labelling colours to sequencing events to identifying how each character feels at different points throughout the story.

In addition to being a surprisingly educational book, it’s also an entertaining one to read. Make it interactive for your child by giving him or her a “wand” they can use whenever Winnie uses hers. If you don’t happen to have one, it’s easy to substitute household items for a wand. Consider using extra chopsticks, an empty paper towel roll, or even a black crayon in place of a wand. Be sure to have a wand handy for yourself too!

There are a number of different books featuring Winnie and Wilbur, including Winnie’s Magic Wand and Winnie In Winter. These books are also easy to find in stores, online, and at the library.
