This product is a 34 paged Halloween themed literacy fun packet! It includes Halloween themed centers, crafts, and individual lessons.
The first section is a homophone matching center called "Which Witch?" This section includes several pages of witch cards with homophones and matching pictures. The center can be played by matching homophones to their cooresponding picture or by matching the words.
The second section is all about Halloween Poetry. It includes a cute print-out of the Halloween poem "Five Little Pumpkins," as well as directions for a craft and activity to go with this poem. This section also includes templates for Halloween themed acrostic poems, and a list of suggested Halloween themed poetry books to use.
The third section is called "Said is Dead." This section features a lesson on putting overused words to rest and using more exciting words in writing. Tombstone templates are provided for overused words, including: said, good, nice, very, sad, and a blank tombstone template is also provided. I have also provided a list of "exciting" alternatives to the word "said." The tombstones can be put together to make a "word cemetery" bulletin board at the end of the lesson!
Extras -- Suggested Halloween read-aloud list, pumpkin template for Halloween crafts, credits.
