PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Creative Round Robin Halloween Writing Activity- with EDITABLE "candies"

Your students are sure to get a scare or even a laugh during this creative and engaging group writing activity! Get your students excited to write with a festive presentation using candy bowls filled with familiar treats with spooky twists! Each bowl will contain one type of “candy” with one component of a story:

-- Not So Sweet Starts - the lead for the story. Students will have to use the line written on this candy for their first sentence.

--Misters and Misses- a character. This candy will provide the students with a character for their story. They can decide whether the character will become the protagonist or antagonist. They can add other characters to the story as well.

--Spots- This candy will provide students with the setting of their story.


Students will be placed in groups of 4 (can be adapted for smaller or larger groups).and will use their chosen setting, character, and lead to create 4 creative tales. Each student is given a piece of stationery, and will have 4 minutes (can be altered to suit your class’s needs) to write the beginning to his or her story using the given story components. After the time has passed, students will rotate their stories to the right, and take the existing story from the partner on the left. This process is repeated until each student receives the story that he or she originally began. Students then share their stories with their table to see the differences and similarities in each completed piece!
