Creepy ABC Match-Up:  V matched uppercase letters on a variety of spooky cards.  I placed these in a sensory table filled with webs and spiders (5 cards at a time).  she found all of the matches and placed the bats, spiders, pumpkins and ghosts on the card with the matching letter.

Slap a Jack-o-Lantern:  We love ABC games.  This was a two player game.  We divided the cards between the two of us face down.  As we placed the cards in the center we identified the letter.  If a boo card popped up the first person to slap the deck was able to keep it and place the cards in their treat bag.

We have a neat way to store our centers.  I have an old listening center rack that acts as a center area.

Each center comes with bin labels and direction cards.  I place all of the materials needed for the activity in a plastic tote bag.  The kids can choose a bag and have everything they need in one location.
