What will you be doing this Halloween – carving pumpkins, making costumes, trick-or-treating? Be sure to add reading and writing with Clicker to that list! LearningGrids is full of great Halloween resources to inspire all your readers and writers.
Your younger learners can read about a group of friends at a Halloween party and then use the supporting sets to talk and write about the activities. Using the Connect Set Halloween Fun, or the Halloween Word Bank for more independent writers, children can write about things they do to celebrate Halloween. Or explore instruction writing with the Making a Pumpkin Lantern resources.
Halloween is also the perfect time to write a spooky story or a ghostly poem, and we have lots of resources to support your children’s creativity. The recently published Suspense Writing Word Bank provides introductory phrases and other vocabulary to help build tension and excitement in stories. Your aspiring poets can use the Halloween Haiku or Spooky Words Word Banks to (pumpkin) spice up their poems.
