Grab a month’s worth of meaningful seasonal activities to use in your 1st-3rd grade classroom! These vocabulary activities use Halloween picture books to teach tier 2 vocabulary words in an engaging way! This impactful routine will help your students master new vocabulary words each week while enjoying seasonal read-aloud books.
This Halloween Vocabulary Activities Bundle includes these 4 weekly vocabulary units:
- The Fierce Yellow Pumpkin by Margaret Wise Brown
- Hallowen Night by Arden Druce
- Scary, Scary Halloween by Eve Bunting
- The Vanishing Pumpkin by Tony Johnston
Each week, students are introduced to 4 new vocabulary words in the weekly read-aloud book. Throughout the week students practice the 4 weekly vocabulary words in a variety of ways and record their thinking in an interactive journal. A brief assessment can be done at the end of the week to see how well students have retained the new vocabulary words.
Note: While these units complement the mentioned picture books, they do not provide the text and the books are not required for utilizing the materials.
You’ll love how easy this routine is to implement and your students will amaze you with how well they learn and retain new vocabulary words each week!
Each unit includes:
- Vocabulary Words (for posting on the board during discussions)
- Word Cards that coordinate with the picture book
- Review activity that incorporates a lot of active participation
- Poster for displaying the words throughout the year
- Foldable Vocabulary Flaps (master)
