Product Description
Halloween is an exciting holiday for many middle-schoolers. Help your students improve their reading comprehension, poetry analysis, and vocabulary skills by using their love of the holiday to engage them with this packet of entertaining literary activities. This product includes three pieces that focus on the Halloween season, along with comprehension, idiom, context clue and other activities

Contents:

Mischief Night: a literary non-fiction piece with the theme “Sometimes you have to stand up to bullies.” The narrator's decision can also lead to teachable moments and discussion. Did he do the right thing? What might have been a better choice? What would you have done?

Related Activities:

Story Analysis, including a character trait organizer
Comprehension questions using STAAR sentence stems


Feline Bullied: A light-hearted poem about a kitten and a pumpkin and their “fiery” relationship. The theme is similar to that of Mischief Night, allowing the teacher to use the two as paired readings.
