This is an activity that I have done in my classroom for some time. Actually the original idea was taken from an activity that I did as a child. The purpose of this activity is to encourage students to continue to practice their penmanship. Unfortunately, it seems that with each school year there is less and less time to work on these extremely important fine motor skills. I like to anchor everything I do in my classroom with a book if possible. The book that I use to hook my students is called, “Room on the Broom”. It is another Halloween poem that uses the same sort of writing sequence through the use of rhyming words and details in illustrations. For my class I have written each of the pages out on chart paper and display a new page each day until Halloween. Since there are twenty-six pages you will need to start this during the last week in September. I know that not everyone has the time to write out each page so the second set of pages has the poem written out so can display one of these pages each day. I have left out the illustrations on purpose. I tell my students that they need to use their imagination and illustrations to tell the story. I hope that this will become an annual event in your classroom. My students have definitely enjoyed it. Happy Halloween!
