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.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy making a “Peekin’ Scarecrow Pal" as much as I did designing him.
