Halloween Poetry Exercise - Short Answer, Activities, Answer Key

The Halloween Poetry Exercise is designed around my original poem, “Disillusionment,” written when I was seventeen years old on the topic of feeling disillusioned over the loss of childhood, as represented by the end of Halloween. As such, the poem is perfect for students from grades six to ten who may see the end of Halloween trick-or-treating looming ahead—and offers the perfect poetic opportunity to open up thoughtful discussion, and to hold onto Halloween in an imaginative way.

The Short Answer Questions invite students into a traditional poetry study that includes the analysis of poetic devices including voice, tone, simile, metaphor, and imagery. The Activities address various intelligences, and include creative writing, research, photo collage, storyboard, or short film, and drawing or painting, as well as a Halloween Interview. Students will love the chance to do some Halloween sleuth-work to find out what the adults around them experienced in Halloweens of the past.

Enjoy this complimentary lesson! And please keep watch for my fantastic classroom package, Bullying Prevention: The Beech Nut of Big Water Beach Novel Study and Anti-Bullying Guide, that accompanies my middle-years novel The Beech Nut of Big Water Beach—coming November 2012!

Ratings and feedback are much appreciated, and I am happy to respond to comments!

Thanks for your interest, and Happy Halloween!
