Looking For The Perfect Halloween Short Stories?

Scary Halloween Short Stories

UPDATE: Offer good until 10/26!

Halloween is just around the corner, and this is your last chance to save a few bucks on three great short story units! Not only will these units save you a bit of time, but your students will enjoy the stories — especially the twists at the end.

Three of my best selling units meet each of these criteria — and all of them start with critically reading a high-interest short story and end with a student-selected writing project. 

Check out these units: 

“The Landlady” by Roald Dahl is a creatively creepy tale that is sure to enthrall even the most jaded middle school student. With Halloween only a month and a half away, now is the time to start planning a unit that’s guaranteed to keep your kids on the edges of their seats, but will also help them practice writing for upcoming state assessments. 

Very well done! The story is so great, and my kids enjoyed the writing that went along with it​.”

The Possibility of Evil by Shirley Jackson

“The Possibility of Evil” by horror writer Shirley Jackson is a spookily scary short story that’s perfect for Halloween and Bullying Prevention Month. This unit includes a student-centered project that will encourage bullying awareness and group collaboration — and will keep your students engaged all week. Encourage your students to think beyond themselves to how they can help others.

Thank you! I loved how thorough this was. There was so much information here for a regular English class, that it was no problem to choose what would work best for my 30 minute enrichment class.” ​ — Angela N.

Clear and thorough– perfect to leave for a sub on my maternity leave!!! Thank you for saving me tons of time.​”

The Masque of the Red Death

“The Masque of the Red Death” by Edgar Allan Poe a deliciously demented short story guaranteed to outrage your advanced middle school or high school students. At the same time, introduce them to the universal theme of death as well as a satirical treatise on the importance of upper class society shouldering the burdens of their shared society.

This was perfect! Thank you!​
