Halloween Read Aloud

I love this time of year. I can read fun books to my students about ghosts, goblins, and pumpkins!

Here is a book I just love:

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat

So many activities could be done with this story (There are just not enough days before Halloween to do them all).

Primary Lesson Idea:

1. Read aloud the story.

2. Talk about the reading concept of sequence. Then talk about the sequence of events in the story.

3. With little ones, use cut out pictures and have the students glue them in order on paper. With older kidos, use both pictures and a sentence to create a sequence chart.

Third and Fourth Graders:

1. Read aloud the story.

2. Talk about the pattern of the text.

3. Make a list of other October/Halloween words.

4. Have students create their own " There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed A ---------------- " story. You could even do this with partners!

5. Publish and share stories in your authors chair. Or better yet, go read these stories to a kindergarten or 1st grade classroom.


Happy Reading!
