PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students make the connection between reading and writing while keeping them engaged as Halloween approaches. This activity set begins with an original informative text highlighting 7 tales of spooky houses from around the country. This article is based on factual information but written in an age and school appropriate manner for elementary students.

Accompanying this informational text is a cut and paste vocabulary activity that focuses on words critical to the comprehension of the text. This is followed by a set of text dependent questions. These questions are scaffolded to help students achieve full understanding by the time they reach the end of the question set.

Wrapping up the activity set is a writing activity that requires students to synthesize and summarize the information from the text into a mini-essay. Included with the writing prompt is a pre-planning guide with questions to help guide the writers thinking as well as space to write.

Answer keys for America's Spooky Houses activities are included.
