Printable Halloween Worksheets, Flashcards and Games

Halloween is the closest major holiday that many English teachers dedicate their lessons to. The uniqueness of this holiday provides not only for a lot of fun activities in the classroom, but also for an opportunity to introduce the vocabulary that educators usually avoid when working with young students. This is when kids can learn some negative connotation albeit useful words such as coffin, cemetery, tombstone and so on. So I decided to design a set of printable flashcards, worksheets and games dedicated to Halloween in order to offer my young students some spooky fun and help them expand their English vocabulary in an uncommon topic.


Traditionally, my printable kit includes four types of worksheets, a bunch of colorful flashcards and two games. The kit is designed to introduce more than 30 words related to the celebration of Halloween. The full vocabulary includes the following words: alien, bat, black cat, bones, candy, cauldron, cemetery/graveyard, coffin, costume, devil/demon, Frankenstein's monster, ghost, gravestone/tombstone, haunted house, jack-o'-lantern, monster, moon, mummy, owl, pirate, potion, pumpkin, skeleton, skull, spider, spider web, troll, vampire, werewolf, witch, witch’s broom, witch’s hat, zombie.
