Use these versatile ELA and Math activities to practice essential math and ELA skills while having some Halloween-themed fun!
You'll have plenty of activities to use during the week before Halloween or spread out during the month of October.
Below are the activities in this packet, along with Common Core standards. While each activity is aligned to Common Core standards, they are not tied to them. If you use another curriculum, these will fit in beautifully! I do not include the standard on the sheet, in order to accommodate other curricula.

I’ve included an option for differentiation for eleven of the activities. These differentiated activities address the core work of the standard, but offer more student support. The Long and Short Vowel Word Sorts can be differentiated by offering students fewer word cards to sort.
All of these activities are great for Morning Work, homework, center time, or daily practice. You might consider copying two activities front-to-back to save paper and to accommodate early finishers.
