Product Description
This activity is a perfect way to introduce, practice, or quickly refresh the concept of onomatopoeia (sound words). And what better time to talk all about sound words than Halloween?

This packet includes four sets of 8 cards that include:
- characters
- spooky event/setting
- onomatopoeia

There is also a mini-anchor chart as well as six publishing pages for the stories that kids create.

To use, simply print out the cards on cardstock and divide into three-four piles (I will often make two piles of characters), based on the Halloween illustration. Have a student pull one card from each pile. He/she will then have the ingredients to start a great Halloween story: one-two characters, an event/setting, and a sound word to use.

The results of this activity are so unique and enjoyable! Kids can take this in spooky or funny direction- up to you and them! The only directions I give is that the story has to include the four elements from the cards they pulled and as many additional onomatopoeia as they think fits!

Share these stories during your Halloween/Fall Party- lights off and flashlight under your chin optional :)

Thanks and Happy Halloween!
