5 Halloween friends is a fun Halloween fluency reader that involves counting 'one less' as each Halloween friend falls off the wall. Students quickly catch on to the phrasing (and math language) while singing new words to the tune of the classic 99 bottles of beer on the wall.
As they watch these fun Halloween characters fall from the wall, they are asked:
If one of these friends has a big fall, how many friends are left on the wall?
Enjoy the full sized color version with your class, then choose one of the half-page line-art versions to give your students! Just using this resource for fluency and fun? Hand out the version with the characters already there! Math lesson? Print the versions without characters, and have your students either draw characters in, use stickers or the line art characters provided to show what is happening as characters fall off the wall!
✔full size color story to read to the class
✔half-page line art student booklets - a) same as color version b) with characters left off the wall (and a variety of line-art characters provided on a separate page for adding to their booklets themselves)
✔meaning supported by engaging pictures
