I am wanting to go into the classrooms and do a read aloud/shared reading with my K-3 teachers in the month of October. What are some of your favorite Hallween theme type books that you use to teach specific reading skills during a shared reading/read alouds?

Tell us the name of the book and what skill you teach from the book...

I used "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything" in 1st grade as a sequencing activity. I brought props (boots, pants, shirt, etc.) and the kids took turns acting out the sequence of the story.

This year I think I will use it to introduce onomatopoeia in writing and we will try to write our own stories. It is a great example of using sounds to make a story interesting!
