Even More Halloween Vocabulary Activities 

Frankenstein this beast of a puzzle into extra games and activities your whole class will enjoy! 

💀 Chilling Charades 

Write each word on a piece of scrap paper, fold them up, and put them into a container. To play, divide your class or small group into 2 teams. Teams will take turns sending up 1 student to choose a word from the bowl and get 30 seconds to act out the word soundlessly for their team. If no one guesses the word it goes back into the bowl and no point is given. Once every student has had their turn to act out a word, the game is over and the group with the highest points wins. 

🧪 Scary Sentences

Have students practice writing full sentences with words from the list. As a challenge, see how many sentences they can write that use more than 1 of the words.  

We also have a Halloween Word Search for Younger Students! 

Easily Prepare This Halloween Vocabulary Word Resource 

Because this resource includes an answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheet for students to complete.  

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity! Print a few copies on cardstock and slip them into dry-erase sleeves. Students can circle the words with a dry-erase marker, then erase and reuse them.
