Description

A perfect Halloween story for ENL Beginners!

Beginner English language learners are crying out for stimulating texts to develop their reading and language skills. These texts are hard to find.

This story is part of a collection of high interest material specifically designed by an experienced ESL teacher for ENL, ESL, ELL students. It is short (230 words), yet contains meaningful content and exciting activities that are sure to provoke discussion. It is designed to be used to easily teach ELA concepts.

Each story and nonfiction article in the series uses vocabulary from one section of the Oxford Picture Dictionary. If you have access to the dictionary, the text pairs with it, enabling you to easily create a multiple day unit of vocabulary work and reading. If you do not have access to the dictionary the text and activities can stand alone. The series of texts introduces literary elements, reading skills, grammar and vocabulary.

The four-sided handout can be copied for your class. The image can be displayed on a screen, if you have one.

You get:

  • One two-side story with original artwork.
  • Activities including grammar and writing.
  • Ideas for teachers — what to do before reading, during reading and after reading.
  • Two grids for retelling the story as a comic.
  • A portrait frame (to teach character) with text detail boxes.
  • A film strip graphic organizer for teaching setting.
  • A T-Chart for comparisons (the story's classroom setting vs. your classroom).
  • An answer key.

This Story

The scary Mrs Fox explains the class rules to Sarah, a new student. The teacher's requests get bizarre (for food as she is hungry) and Sarah is told to leave the room. The principal passes by and is holding a knife and cooking pot. At the end of the story it is implied that Sarah is to be Mrs Fox's lunch.
