Need a cute, engaging writing activity for Halloween? Try this literature-based prompt for Broom Mates by Margie Palatini. My students love these activities using a fun, entertaining read-aloud that also works as a fantastic mentor text. (This book is AWESOME.) Palatini combines puns, alliteration, rhyming, and onomatopoeia with great voice, sentence fluency, and organization.
In this download, I have included 2 versions; the first is my original writing activity. The second offers a few more opportunities for creativity, which works well for confident, more independent writers. Besides the PowerPoint presentations, I have also included PDF versions of both activities to post during writing time.
