Happy Halloween! A dollar off for a limited time.
Flick off the lights to set the mood, then all you have to do is slowly & quietly say the words, “Haunted House”, and you will have everyone's attention.
No matter what grade I taught I loved going for that “Gotcha!” moment, to get people excited about writing.
I truly believe that students will be enthusiastic about “getting down to the business of writing”, if you simply give them something and to write about.
It’s that simple. Find their “hot button”. If your students are like mine, then a haunted house, is that catalyst in motivating them to WANT to write. Woo Hoo!
With that in mind, I designed 6 writing prompt craftivities for this “Haunted House” packet.
They are all different enough, so that you can easily do several; one in class, one as a fun homework assignment, one for extra credit, a sub tub, or for early finishers.
Some of the easy-peasy ones are perfect for your Halloween party day too.
If you give students a choice, you may be surprised that they want to do them all.
Patterns come in black & white as well as color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.
Check the PREVIEW for lots of samples.
Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board too.
I’ve included several posters to help you introduce the lesson, as well as several more to enhance the various displays, such as the letters that spell LOOK!
To expand the lesson, and practice yet another standard, I’ve also included a whole-group graphing extension, as well as a helpful writing rubric.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a Happy Halloween & a fun-filled time going for the "Gotcha!"
