Haunted House Making

A fun activity for practicing Halloween vocabulary.

Description:

Students practice Halloween vocabulary and collect small picture cards to paste onto their haunted house handout. It's fun for them to collect all of the items and decorate their handout. I designed the activity for use in my special needs classes, but it could also be adapted for use in elementary school.


Preparation:

Students will need glue and colored pencils or crayons. The teacher needs to print out the haunted house worksheet and cut out some Halloween pictures (bats, skulls, pumpkins, etc.).


Procedure:

  1. Practice the Halloween vocabulary words: witch, bat, skull, ghost, cat, spider, pumpkin. (I usually draw them on the board and have the students repeat after me.)
  2. Practice the phrase for getting picture cards. I recommend "Please give me ~." (Other phrases work, too: "Can I have ~?", "~, please!")
  3. Distribute the worksheets and let the students get out the materials they will need.
  4. Decide how many pictures each student can get, and let them begin.

Tips & Advice:

  • If the class is distracted easily, you may want to let them get out their materials after they have collected all of their small picture cards.
  • Pasting the pictures and coloring the haunted house can take a long time, so I usually use the whole lesson time.
