Let’s be honest, teaching punctuation can be frustrating! It is a skill that our young learners need constant review to master. Sometimes it feels impossible to come up with a fun, new way to teach and review punctuation! If you can relate to this, then you definitely want to check out these punctuation activities for Halloween.
In this hands on activity, Winnie the Witch has stolen all of the punctuation to make her punctuation potion! To add to the dramatic effect, hang up the WANTED poster and read the letter from Winnie to your students before they go searching for the missing punctuation. You can use this activity as a center or hang up the punctuation cards around the room to get students moving!
Trick Or Treat
Do your students love sorting activities? Mine too! This activity is a fun twist on sorting. Students read the sentence and sort the sentences with the correct punctuation as a TREAT and the sentences with the incorrect punctuation as a TRICK.
Punctuation Costume Parade
If your students are anything like mine, then they’ve been talking about their Halloween costumes since October 1st! In this activity, your students will help organize a costume parade where all the kids accidentally wore the same costume! Use this as a center or you can place it around the room for students to walk around.
Decorate the Haunted House
This activity is perfect if your class loves crafts, but you don’t love the mess! Students will decorate their haunted house by reading each of the sentences and writing the correct punctuation inside of the haunted house accessory.
