Year after year, this is probably my students' favorite Halloween writing activity. It's fun, they write about themselves, it's a bit creepy (if you actually think about it), and it's different!
This Zip file contains a Power Point lesson on epitaph writing; including examples. You will also receive a tombstone "final copy sheet" for their finished product.
After we all finish our epitaphs, we display them in the hallway in a "cemetery-like" manner. I have to admit, they look pretty good out there. Classes from all over the school make their way to our hallway just to see our epitaphs and get a few laughs. What a boost to a young author's ego is that???
Please check out my TPT store, Arrrsome in Fifth, for more fun Halloween activities. Thank you!
