Use a fun Halloween book to teach tier 2 vocabulary! This week-long resource uses the book Scary Scary Halloween by Eve Bunting to teach 4 tier 2 vocabulary words. This low-prep routine is easy to implement and will help your students master new vocabulary.

This unit includes: 

  • Vocabulary Words (for posting on the board during discussions)
  • Word Cards that coordinate with the picture book
  • Review activity that incorporates a lot of active participation
  • Assessment
  • Poster for displaying the words throughout the year
  • Foldable Vocabulary Flaps (master)
  • Vocabulary cards with photo support
  • Interactive review PowerPoint

Note: While this unit complements the book Scary Scary Halloween by Eve Bunting, it does not provide the text and the book is not required for utilizing the materials.

In this unit, students are introduced to 4 new vocabulary words in the read-aloud book (optional). Throughout the week students practice the 4 weekly vocabulary words in a variety of ways and record their thinking in an interactive journal. A brief assessment can be done at the end of the week to see how well students have retained the new vocabulary words. 

Students love this method of acquiring new vocabulary and you’ll be amazed at how well they retain the words!


“This is still my favorite thing to do with the kids each day.  They love finding the words everywhere.  Lots of positive parent feedback too!” - 2nd Grade Teacher ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“My RTI students LOVE these activities! The stories are engaging, and really help them see/hear the words in an authentic setting. I've made it a part of our routine, and they cannot wait to get started! They have even recognized some of our Jargon Journal words in other texts! As a teacher, I really appreciate the step-by-step instructions.” - Lynn M. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
