Do you use theme word walls in your room? You know the ones…You write words that go with the theme or season that you are in. Some teachers write them on chart paper and switch them out as units or seasons change.
Kids love theme words and will often use them in their writing through-out the day. And unlike your regular word wall, can be switched out easily. They just kind of add some energy and pizzazz!

For more fall and Halloween word fun, here are a couple of fun games that go with those seasonal theme word walls.
Kids love to play games with words and using themed seasonal words makes it even better! I have included 2 Go Fish games and an Around the World game. One of the Go Fish games uses easier fall words and each set of words are color coded and picture themed together. This differentiation helps to ensure that each student can be successful, which is important to me. The 2nd Go Fish uses more difficult words and each card is picture and color themed the same to challenge them a bit more.
For the game Around the World, all the seasonal words from both Go Fish games are used. You may also know this game as Popcorn. Kids absolutely LOVE this game!
Are you and your students gearing up for Halloween? Bats, jack-o-lanterns, and ghosts! When we move a little closer to the end of the month, this pack might be just what you need! It is set up the same way as the fall seasonal games. Students enjoy playing games…We just don’t have to tell them they are still reading while playing!
