This Halloween writing product includes 10 high interest, partially finished pictures along with 2 or 3 open- ended questions about what might be represented in the illustration. Students use their imagination to complete the Halloween scenario using some of the 242 Halloween images included, along with any free hand drawing and coloring they choose to add. Then students write a short story or paragraph to go with the illustration using primary writing space at the bottom of each story starter page. Please take a look at the preview to get an idea of some of the Halloween topics included.
The questions and clipart/stickers give emergent and beginning writers the structure they need while learning to put ideas in writing, yet the component that allows them to to illustrate, imagine what might happen, and share original ideas in writing provides a positive opportunity for creative expression.
Thank you for your interest in my products. Please leave feedback, as I truly value the input of my colleagues as I continue to design instructional materials.
Thank you to mycutegraphics.com for many of the adorable Halloween graphics!
