With Fall Harvest 🎃(Halloween) around the corner, you might be searching for a fun and engaging classroom activity. This is ALWAYS a favorite of mine (and my students). Use these ready-made Halloween-Themed Task Cards to practice using context clues to figure out vocabulary.
There are so many ways to use these task cards – play SCOOT, hang them around the room and let partners complete them together, have a race with partners completing the cards, or my very favorite is KICK ME. Tape the cards on the backs of your students (yes, they freak out when you do this). The anticipation is enough to get the whole class into this.
Turn on some fall/Halloween music, and students walk around and answer the questions on the backs of one another. Lay out some ground rules, of course (the first one – NO KICKING allowed). Also, they have to stand still if someone is reading their card, have someone else read their own card, no running, and do your best to get as far as you can before time is up. I usually stopped after 3 students brought me all of their answers. All of their answers had to be correct to be a winner. 🎉
