Description

Happy Halloween! A dollar off for a limited time.

To get more bang for my “time” buck, I like to cover a variety of standards with one activity.

With that in mind, I designed “Trick or Treating at a Haunted House”.

It’s not only a super-fun writing prompt craftivity, but it also reinforces the 5 senses, and the importance of using them to enhance writing.

The scenario:

Students are trick or treating and they visit a haunted house.

What do they see, hear, feel, taste & smell?

After writing their rough draft, then editing, they fill out a rubric checklist, then write their final draft on the writing prompt worksheet.

So you can easily diversify your lessons for grade & skill levels, I've included a writing rubric for younger children, as well as older students.

There are 4 different haunted houses for students to choose from.

There are 2 patterns (a TOP and BOTTOM) for each haunted house, as the 5 senses writing prompt is glued to the center.

See PREVIEW for lots of samples.

Patterns come in both black & white for students to color, as well as colorful templates, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.

I’ve also included patterns for my finished writing.

Sharing examples not only helps explain what you want students to do, but I pretty much guarantee that they will be very excited to make a haunted house of their own!

Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board or hallway display.

I’ve included several “Trick or Treat” posters to add some extra pizzazz, as well as a “5 Senses” poster, plus one that defines “Adjectives”. Use them to introduce your lesson, then add them to your display.

Toss some “cobwebs” in each corner, and you have a “WOW!” bulletin board, sure to get lots of compliments.

To extend the lesson & practice yet another standard, I’ve also included a whole group-graphing activity.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me. I hope you & your students have an absolute blast with this Halloween craftivity.
