A Perfect Prompt

Today, as the snow falls onto the neighbourhood jack-o-lanterns, I see a perfect picture prompt. Halloween is a motivating day to write (with or without the snow)!

Kindergarten students can draw and label their costumes. Older students can engage in some descriptive writing or a story. For a freewrite prompt today, try one of these: “On Halloween…” or “Today I see…” (especially if students are already in costume).

Put on some spooky music and write!

    No snow in VA yet. I loved seeing your snowy pumpkins!! My Middle Schoolers loved spending time after lunch writing tombstone epitaphs and looking at an array of scary photos and writing a spooky poem! This is a fun holiday to inspire writing!
