FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Free Simpsons Character “Tags” Creative Novel/Lit Activity”

by Tracee Orman
6th - 12th Grade

Students love to tag one another in pictures on Facebook. By using that same concept in a novel study (or any reading activity), students will match up characters from The Simpsons to characters in the novel. They have to justify their choices, which allows them to create their own metaphors for each character. It's a fun activity & definitely one the students understand.

Aligned with the new Common Core Standards.

This can be used with any novel or literature, and in history (use to make connections for historical figures), science, and virtually any content area! This is a great review activity before a test or quiz.

Check out all of my Character Tags activity packs:
Character Tags, Volume 1
Character Tags, Volume 2
Character Tags, Volume 3
"Glee" Character Tags
The Simpsons Character Tags {FREE!}

Grades 3-6

Like to have a Halloween themed display in your classroom? This free decorative banner will surely highlight your students' reading and writing activities during Halloween.

But before you scroll to the end to get this Halloween freebie - do stop and read all the fun activities your students can engage in during the week of Halloween.

Halloween themed classroom Display Banner

There are so many activities that generate fun whilst learning and perhaps one of my favorite is the Halloween Scavenger Hunt - a superb activity that involves movement and also perfect to assign during the week of Halloween when kids are in a frenzied state of excitement.

There are 32 fact cards featuring information on Halloween. Students will need to read the information on each card in order to respond to the question on their recording sheet. This involves reading and comprehending effectively - a vital skill that all students need to possess in order to ace any English Language Arts standardized test.

What makes reading all the more fun is that each fact is presented on a single card - consequently, information is presented in manageable chunks and is not too overwhelming for the student.

Halloween themed classroom Display Banner

The fun aspect of this learning activity arises when students get to walk around the class trying to find the task cards in order to answer the questions on their recording sheets. My kids love this and it's interesting to watch them clipboard and pencil in hand, enthusiastically walking up and down the classroom trying to find the hunt cards.

If the learning goal is to integrate technology in the activity, I use the hunt cards that have QR Codes which when scanned provide students with the answers to the questions.

To make it more challenging, students need to make an educated guess prior to scanning the code for the response. Interestingly, they are still learning as they think, read and write their responses on the recording sheets.

 Halloween themed classroom Display Banner: HALLOWEEN QR CODE HUNT

After students have finished the hunt, they gather together on the mat and I project the cards on the interactive whiteboard.

We go through the responses for each question accordingly. Students assess their own work - this way they constructively re-think any incorrect responses.

There are bound to be some students who will zip through the activity and finish all 32 questions - for these students you can assign the reflecting writing task, whereby they write 3-4 facts on a writing template of choice. This would make a perfect bulletin board display.

Recording information on flipbook templates is also a favorite activity in my classroom.
Moreover, the assembled flipbook makes an impressive bulletin board display.

 Halloween themed classroom Display Banner: HALLOWEEN RESEARCH ON FACTS

Another favorite activity that my students enjoy is the Halloween creative writing story activity.
This is an interactive notebook activity and unlike the Scavenger Hunt that involves movement, it focuses on motor coordination and students' creative writing expression.

Students write out their stories observing the elements of a plot on the response template.

They choose a cover to glue over the response template and cut out the sections.

 Folding back the cut-out sections reveal the story below.

This will be another perfect addition to the bulletin board display.
And finally, here is the colorful free Halloween themed banner that you can put up in your classroom and display students' work below.

Here's to your students having a fun memorable Halloween activity week in your classroom!

If you're a coffee lover, these seasonal watercolor coffee cups are just the thing to celebrate each of the four seasons :) This coffee clipart set is just a small sample of what you will find in my Monthly Coffee Clipart set, which includes colorful coffee cup illustrations for every month of the year. White-filled blacklines are included for a total of 8 images in this coffee clipart set.
All pieces are high resolution 300 dpi PNG images on transparent backgrounds and can easily be layered into your projects and lesson materials.
What Are Doodle Clips? Doodle Clips are images created from sketching traditionally (on paper), inking (blackline), then coloring either traditionally (with markers, pencils, or paint) or digitally. They tend to have a much more organic feel, and AREN'T composed of perfectly straight lines. There is beauty in imperfection, which is what I love most about Doodle Clips!
