Halloween is one of the kids favorite holidays of the year, and The Room on the Broom is one of their favorite books. That’s why I decided to put these two together for a week filled with fun and games. These Halloween (Room on the Broom) Literacy Activities is great for developing young learners’ story re-tell, letter recognition, word recognition and fine-motor skills.
Room on the Broom: Story Props
Read the Room on the Broom, or watch the animation here. Use the story props from the printable pack to re-tell the story. Hand out the pictures to the children and ask them to come to the front and stick their pictures on the wall as it comes up in the story re-tell.
Room on the Broom: Story Sequencing
Read the story and watch the animated song here. Ask the children if they remember which characters the witch came about First, Second, Third and Last on her journey. Then ask them if they remember in which order she lost her belongings. Children complete the sequencing cut-and-paste activity.
Room on the Broom: Beginning Sound Matching
Hand out the activity sheets. Ask the children to name all the pictures. The teacher writes these words on the board. Say each word and ask the children if they can hear which sound the word begins with? Circle the beginning sounds. Children complete the cut-and-paste activity.
Room on the Broom: Write the Room
The teacher hides all the word cards around the room and ask children to find all the words and to write these next to the correct picture on their recording sheets.
