This Halloween Powerpoint presentation is a fun way to motivate students to write a creative Halloween tale. The Powerpoint presentation serves as a writing template and motivator with its sound effects and animation. Present the Powerpoint Halloween story animation to your students then give them copies of the story template and have them fill-in their individualized stories. After they have completed their stories, have your students come to the front of the classroom and present their stories while you simultaneously play the Powerpoint story on a computer or smart board.
[Allow the sound effects and animation to finish before your student speaks her/his part.]
If you record their stories on an audio recorder or video cam you can either email or give CDs to your students, in this case, your students will have a lasting memory of their Halloween tale that they can share at home with their families.
