Introduce Halloween Books to Foster Writing Spooky Poems and Stories

Halloween will be creeping up soon. It affords us the opportunity to introduce a whole new vocabulary of words that are used in Halloween themed writing. Words that give the reader chills and thrills are also the words that will make their own written works more colorful and vivid. So here are a few books that are fun to read and not too scary. I particularly love the first one because it is an anthology of Halloween poems for children and it really models the use of literary devices in writing. And the cute monsters are a plus!

Trick or Treat Poems                            Trick or Treat: Smell My Feet

Halloween Night                                     Room on the Broom

The Best Halloween Ever                       The Witches by Roald Dhal

The Spider and the Fly

As we are on the topic of books for your classroom library, you can see my 10 Classroom Library Tips for helpful and creative ways to have the best library for your class.

By, the way, if you are having a Halloween class party, this collection of Halloween jokes will be a hit! 

I'd love for you to check it out.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
