What educators are saying

This is an exceptional resource for helping students with their RL standards! Thanks so much for making it so engaging for the students!
My students LOVED doing this after state testing! They were HIGHLY engaged and were able to enhance their speaking and listening skills!


Looking for a fun, no-prep listening activity for your Language Arts class? Your students will LOVE this podcast study for "The Creeping Hour," and you'll love these companion sheets! These five terrifying tales make the perfect activity to use when wrapping up state testing, before/after a school break, or with a sub! Digital & printable versions are included.

Check out the PREVIEW for more information!

Here's the scoop: The Creeping Hour has a 5-episode podcast that tells scary stories in 15 minutes or less.

So how do you use it in the classroom? With listening sheets, comprehension questions, and creative writing prompts of course!

How do you use it?

For each episode, I've provided a double-sided worksheet (or Google Slides) that includes:

  • Listening Activity: Illustrate the setting, conflict, etc. OR a word search
  • Post-Listening Activity: Standards-based questions and a fun writing prompt

Sounds great, what prep is required?

With your purchase, all you need to do is print the booklets double-sided & go! Need to use this digitally? No problem! A Google Slides alternative is provided, ensuring that any student can complete the assignment.

This podcast companion set is perfect for those awkward times when you need to fill the period with something purposeful, but you know the kids need something engaging, like:

  • Fun Fridays
  • End of Quarter Reward
  • The Day Before Break
  • End of the School Year
  • Halloween
  • Short Days
  • name it!
