Last week I shared a Halloween-themed physical education lesson and instructions on how to find and modify Kahoot games about Halloween. Those of you who are looking for Halloween-themed stories to use in ELA lessons could do well to turn to this collection on ReadWorks.
The bulk of the Halloween collection on ReadWorks features articles for a K-8 audience with a few 9-12 articles mixed in. The articles covered topics like the history of Halloween, pumpkin farms, and the history of ghost stories. Like all ReadWorks articles, you’ll find comprehension questions and vocabulary sets to accompany the articles. A read aloud feature is also available in ReadWorks.
Of course, now that ReadWorks allows students to choose their own articles to read, you could just let your students pick a Halloween article on their own.
More Halloween resources can be found in the following articles:
