Harry Potter: 10 Creative Writing Printables
This packet contains ten fun creative writing exercises to complement any Harry Potter unit. Each prompt can stand on its own, or you can link them all to the Sensory Detail handout at the beginning if you want to have an over-arching lesson in the writing series.
If you just want to use the creative writing exercises, simply pass them out as a class opener, closer, or change-of-pace throughout the unit (Tuesdays and Thursdays could be creative writing days, etc.).
If you want to use the sensory details theme, pass the “Sensory Details, Hogwarts Style” handout to your students before doing the first exercise. Then give them a type or types of details to focus on with each writing exercise.
“Professor ______” – Write with a focus on details relating to taste.
“Hagrid’s Helper” – Write with a focus on details relating to sight.
“A Hogwart’s Birthday” – Write with a focus on details relating to smell.
“Dear Diary”– Write with a focus on details relating to touch.
“The Quidditch Tryouts” - Write with a focus on details relating to sound.
