I am always looking for fun auditory activities for my students. I love it when a theme can be fit into it too. Halloween is a perfect theme to target auditory activities! My students love anything Halloween related.
I created this packet well over two years ago but never wrote about it. I want to share more about it with you now. This has been a hit with my language students and I hope yours will love the activities too!
There are five activities included in this packet:
Auditory Memory for Sentences: In this activity, students are asked to repeat a sentence exactly as it is read to them. Sentences are 10-14 syllables long. If the students get the sentence correct, they can move a game piece on the game board provided.
Haunted House Riddles: In this activity, you read the clues out loud, and the students guess what the Halloween item is. If they get it correct, they can put their card in their “haunted house.” My students love guessing the items and then getting to hold onto the cards.
Auditory Memory for Halloween Stories: There are 12 stories included in this packet. Each story is 2-3 sentences in length. There are three comprehension questions following each story. There is also a simple picture for each story.
Halloween Story Retelling: In this activity, a short story is read to students and they are asked to retell the story. There are no picture cues for these stories, they are purely auditory. There is a rubric provided for scoring the story retell.
