Favorite Halloween Reads



An interactive read aloud is the purposeful read aloud of a story to focus on specific content, central theme(s), and vocabulary.  They are an essential component to balanced literacy that provide many opportunities for all students to engage with rich texts.  Interactive read alouds are typically done whole-group with pauses throughout each read to:


  • discuss the text and theme 
  • discuss the illustrations and meaning(s)
  • make predictions
  • make connections
  • have conversations


Some of my most favorite interactive read alouds are during the Halloween season.  They are books about being yourself, sharing your passion, teamwork, accepting differences, and helping friends.


And my top ten Halloween interactive read alouds are:


Bonaparte Falls Apart by Margery Cuyler

The Little Kitten by Nicola Killen

Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds

Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman

The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda D. Williams

The Little Ghost Who Was a Quilt by Byron Eggenschwiler

The Hallo-Weiner by Dav Pilkey

Gustavo the Shy Ghost by Flavia Z. Drago

Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson

Stumpkin by Lucy Ruth Cummins
