Halloween is a time of the year that many teachers dread. Students are excited about going Trick or Treating, and teachers are dealing with sugar highs and tired kids the next day. Halloween can be a fun time in the classroom too. Today we are going to showcase products to help make your language arts class a fun place to be.
Halloween Reading Fun
Our newest product is definitely going to be a hit with your class. These Halloween Reading Comprehension passages are a fun way to do a baseline reading assessment. Students will read a Halloween story and answer vocabulary and comprehension questions both with multiple choice and short answer questions. These are available both in digital and print forms.
Another fun product is our Fall Graphic Novel Stories. All students love to read graphic novels. These can be used in so many ways too. For example, you can use them in whole group, in a small group, during guided reading, for independent practice, or in literature circles. Students will have so much fun reading the stories and teachers will love the variety of activities. This includes comprehension, vocabulary, reading responses, writing prompts, and open-ended discussion questions. Students will love the step-by-step drawing and the opportunity to create their own graphic novels. To see more, check out this blog post: Graphic Novels Students Will Love to Read!
Halloween Readers Theater is a definite go-to for your class. Students will be practicing fluency while being engaged in highly entertaining Halloween stories. They will love responding to the reflection questions and will be begging you for more stories. “Can we do it again?” Writing prompts and discussion questions are included. Students will be having a growth mindset during Readers Theater as they deepen their thinking.
If you are looking for a creative way to teach writing, these Halloween Writing Prompts are for you. This includes 8 different prompts to get those writing juices flowing. Each comes with its own draft paper. They can be used independently or in centers.
The Halloween Writing Project will take your students through all of the writing stages and help them write a scary story. This includes graphic organizers, writing papers, and revising and editing checklists. A fun way to celebrate their writing is to have them bring in blankets and flashlights so they can make forts and share their spooky stories with their friends.
Grammar Halloween Fun
Another fun use of our Halloween products is our Grammar Silly Stories, Halloween version. This is what you might know as Mad Libs. Students are working with a partner to fill in different parts of speech. This helps them review their grammar. When they add their partner's suggested words, the result is a hilarious story that will have them laughing even without trick-or-treating.
A great way to teach the difference between simple, compound, and complex sentences is with the use of this product, Halloween Language. To teach the difference between regular and irregular plural nouns, use Halloween Plural Nouns.
Halloween No Prep: Reading, Writing and Language Fun is for teachers wanting a wide variety. This resource includes reading graphic organizers, writing prompts, no prep printable puzzles, word work, and a review of grammar using games. This product is great when you have 10 minutes and you need a time filler. They are great for morning work, independent work, or exit slips too. Perfect for your early finishers!
