Are you shopping for some new, fresh Halloween read alouds to add to your library this year? Are you wanting some adorable, easy activities to go with any new read alouds you may purchase?

This book companion is perfect for you!

I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll is a fun read aloud for Halloween season. It sets the stage well for teaching how to make predictions, identify problem and solution relationships, and many other skills!

This book companion includes:

*A teacher guide that describes how I recommend using this product

*Interactive Read Aloud Guiding Questions (that can be printed on sticky notes)

*Suggested Vocabulary to teach, along with guiding questions (can also be printed on sticky notes)

*A student think-pair-share activity after completing and initial read aloud

*Graphic organizers for close reading purposes. Graphic organizers cover:

-Compare/contrast

-Character

-Cause & Effect

-Main Idea

-Probem + Solution

-Summarizing

(You can choose one to focus on, based on the standards you are currently working on, or use several throughout the course of a week as review.)

-A writing extension activity: Students will design their ideal monster and write a paragraph that allows readers to visualize what their monster may look and act like, similar to the way the monsters in the story were described to them!

Celebrate Halloween this year with a great read aloud + paired activities that your students will love!
