Halloween Phonics Activities

Review phonics skills with a Halloween twist! Younger readers can identify initial and final letters in Halloween words. Older readers can spell Halloween words, identify digraphs and blends, and make Halloween word families.

Any phonics skill can be reviewed using Halloween words. Students can sort words by vowel team, long or short vowel sounds, and syllables. The word witch is a good example of a consonant digraph. Mask includes a consonant blend. Use the list of Halloween words above to create a spooky phonics mini-lesson.

Alphabet stamps, tiles, and plastic letters are important teaching tools for younger students to practice phonics skills. Upper and lower case letter stamps are available at Amazon.com. Click on the picture below for more information.

Look for The ABCs of Halloween, by Patti Reeder Eubank, at your local library, or at Amazon.com. Click on the picture below for more information.
