Here's a quick, easy
and super-fun little something you can do for Halloween
week or party day.
The controversy of Halloween
, makes a nice comparison-contrast
writing activity, where students list the positive aspects of Halloween
that they like, as well as the negative ones
that they don't care for.
Whenever I include a bit of hands-on craftiness to a lesson, I instantly have my students' attention; and they can't wait to get down to the business of writing
So as a topper for their completed October writing prompt, children use an art form fittingly called: "positive-negative" and create a Jack-O-Lantern
with my easy-peasy
Completed projects make an interesting bulletin board
To add some variety to your display, I've included 5 writing prompt worksheet options
with different Halloween-themed graphics
for your students to choose from.
PK teachers can do this as a whole-group discussion
activity, where students give their opinion and you jot down their answers on one
of the writing prompt worksheets
, then each child can make a positive-negative pumpkin, which can be scattered around the prompt.
