Review theme in a fun way for Halloween!
Let your students be creative and have fun this Halloween while still covering important literature standards! With this activity, your students will think about setting, characters, and theme when writing their own story.
Your students will roll a dice to determine the setting, the main character, and the theme of their story. Your students will then plan out how their character will change throughout the story before beginning their writing. Thinking through character change due to a big event in a story helps students to recognize theme and character change in other stories. After they finish planning, they will be able to write their own stories on Halloween themed paper.
I am always amazed at how creative my students are when writing and how well applying a reading skill to their own writing helps them to understand that skill.
I hope that this product is a good fit for your classroom and kids this Halloween!
