Here are three writing prompts that the students will love. The students will write as if they are a pumpkin trying to convince Farmer Frank to not use them as his Jack-O-Lantern. They will also create a image of the pumpkin. The least two focus on the students being a turkey attempting to avoid being on Farmer Franks Thanksgiving table. They will first write a letter to Farmer Frank explaining why they are not the best option for dinner. The follow-up has the students disguising their turkey, so they can sneak past Farmer Frank.
My students really enjoy these three writing assignment and the creativity in both their writing and pictures.
