Be ready for Halloween with the short story The Giant Ghost. It's not scary or creepy, so you don't have to worry about offending parents. I like to study vocabulary in the context of fiction because I think it's more meaningful and fun for the students.
This lesson includes...
*The full story of The Giant Ghost with vocabulary words in bold
*3 pages of context clues work
*3 pages of vocabulary practice
*Cards to play a vocabulary practice game
*6 pages of an answer key for the worksheets
This lesson is posted for a wide range of grade levels because it can be used in a small group by a speech/language pathologist, or as a classroom activity by a regular education teacher.
