This Kindergarten Halloween ELA Activities pack is filled with ELA activities for kindergartners. There are Halloween themed activities for each of the six Common Core Standards domains (RL, RI, L, SL, RF, and W).

This will take some of the stress off of your plate by providing you with standards-based and Common Core-aligned seasonal activities!
Each domain will have 3-4 activities. The domains are Reading Literature, Reading Informational, Writing, Speaking and Listening, Language, and Foundational Skills. There will be a mix of hands-on partner, whole group, and independent activities.
