So, Halloween is nearly here! Do you have plans for some spooky classroom activities this week? Halloween is a fantastic opportunity for creative writing and there are plenty of activities to help fire your students’ imagination at this spooktacular time of year!
Here are some of my favorites:
Get your students to imagine they are in a haunted house (or other equally spooky location!) Encourage them to use their senses to describe the setting. What can they hear? What can they see? What can they smell?
Halloween is the perfect opportunity for some creepy character description. Students could describe a well known character such as Dracula or Frankenstein or they could make up their own spooky character.
Have a go at creating a Halloween-themed adventure story with some spooky characters and eerie settings.
Students could write instructions for their favorite Halloween party game. You could even follow the instruction and have a go at playing the games!
I’ve been using my Spooky Halloween Writing Paper for some extra inspiration! Just click on the picture below to go directly to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store to grab them.
