•Halloween Adjectives- Students choose an adjective to describe the noun in each sentence and then rewrite the sentence with correct punctuation and capitalization. I had students use thesauruses to find synonyms of "basic" adjectives that they wanted to use.
•"A Trick-Or-Treat" Story Starter- Students read and complete the story. I challenged students to add dialogue, colorful adjectives and verbs, and a satisfying conclusion.
I had students read their writing aloud. They loved this activity!
