No one does mood like Edgar Allan Poe! This activity contains an excerpt from “The Fall of the House of Usher,” minus 15 words. Students use the grid to insert their own nouns, verbs, and adjectives into the story.

Afterwards, students will examine how authors use words purposely to make readers feel a certain way while reading. This mood activity is a one-page worksheet that can help guide discussion of mood and language in literature.

This passage is the narrator’s first impression of the creepy and desolate House of Usher.

This product is in PDF format and is not editable.

The “Fall of the House of Usher” Grammar Fill-Ins include:

  • passage with blanks inserted to replace 15 words (2 pages, illustrated)
  • grid where students write in their parts of speech. Parts of speech include: nouns, verbs, and adjectives. The grid page includes a brief review of these three parts of speech. (1 page)
  • original passage with the original words underlined (2 pages, illustrated)
  • mood activity–How do the words you replaced in the passage affect your emotions? (1 page)


  • The passage is from the original Edgar Allan Poe story. As such, the language and writing style may be difficult for younger readers to understand. This story is commonly taught in middle and high school.
  • I recommend Grades 7-10.
