After a super successful Halloween Creative Writing Lesson (see Trick or Treat: Creative Writing Prompts for Halloween Writing
), the students begged for more. I did some brainstorming with the other teachers and we decided to try a Round-Robin story-writing activity--this lesson! It was a big hit for both the students and teachers.
This lesson includes 30 different Halloween and fall-themed prompts. I’ve included instructions for the three different variations of the activity we tried out with our students, but in reality, there are many different ways you could use these prompts—journal topics or bellringer activities, individual writing assignments throughout the fall, or as prewriting tools for a variety of other written assignments.
Please take a look at the thumbnail images and preview above to get a better idea of what exactly is included in the lesson and if you decide to try it out, please leave feedback to let me know how you used it and if your students loved it as much as ours did!
Note: I created this document in PowerPoint for easy editing, but it is NOT intended to be used as a presentation. If you wish to add or change something on one page, you don't have to worry about your entire document shifting. It prints on regular letter-sized paper, just like any other document.
