Celebrate Edgar Allan Poe (or Halloween, or while studying Gothic literature) in style! This resource contains everything you need to have a party for one of everyone's favorite American authors. His birthday is January 19th, but these are great to use any time of the year!
All of the resources coordinate, or can used separately. They can be printed in black and white or in color...each item has a red, black, and white color scheme.
What You Get in the Party Pack:
Poe Party Invitation - Get your students excited about the Poe Party with this invitation!
Poe Party Cupcake Toppers - 3 different toppers: raven, heart, and Party Poe
Poe Party Cupcake Wrappers - 2 color options: white and red
Poe Party Pennant Banner - Banner text: "Happy Birthday, Edgar!" The banner comes in two colors and styles: white with black text or red with white text.
Poe Party Photo Props - Have fun taking pictures with Poe's hair, a raven sitting on your shoulder, or a jester's hat!
Poe Party Pin the Feather on the Raven Game - Print this poster out to play this classic party game. Includes instructions about how to print the image as a poster.
Poe Party Would You Rather Cards - Each of the 12 cards contains dilemmas related to Poe short stories/poems and the related story/poem is noted under the dilemma. Use these to introduce some of Poe's lesser studied works, like "Hop-Frog," "Some Words with a Mummy," and "The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether." These are great to use as a whole group activity, partner work, or as writing prompts.
Poe Party Toaster Article and Writing Assignment - Students will read an article about the Poe Toaster (no, not the appliance!), then write their own toast to a Poe character. A rubric is included.
