I love doing a variety of scarecrow-themed activities in the fall, so I created this cute “Peekin’ Scarecrow” writing prompt craft.
Whenever I toss a bit of creative craftiness in with our writing, my students get all excited to get down to business.
Since completed projects turn out pretty amazing, I also have an easy-peasy bulletin board or hallway display as well; which not only builds self-esteem, but gets us a lot of compliments too.
I find that if one provides students with a variety of interesting, fun and thought-provoking writing prompts, you will have hit a motivating “hot button”.
With that in mind, I spent quite a bit of time thinking up 42 engaging prompts, all with a scarecrow in mind.
The pattern provides 6 prompts on a one-page template.
Print the 7 pages off, trim the prompts, then toss them into a basket.
Students pick 3, choose their favorite, then toss the other 2 back in the basket.
This prompt is then glued to their completed project.
There are 5 different, writing prompt worksheets for students to compose their final draft on.
These can be glued horizontally or vertically to their “Peekiin’ Scarecrow”.
The packet also includes a writing rubric students can use as a checklist, 2 posters to enhance your display, plus 3-completed prompts so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.
As with all of my packets, there are clear directions, with helpful tips & photographs.
Be sure & click the PREVIEW to see lots of samples.
