Halloween Writing Prompts Make Super Halloween Classroom Gifts

I love Halloween writing prompts, don't you? I can think of no other time of year when it's better to add a bit of creative writing to the curriculum than at Halloween. It's this time of the year when students can write about magic, monsters, and really any other imaginary thing they wish. In fact, they get encouraged to be creative and come up with creative stories.

I love using story starters during Halloween too. A story starter is a great tool to get students writing using creative ideas. A story starter provides a prompts that creates a scenario that, well, starts the story. Then students have a free license to finish the story any way they wish.

I got a bit crafty with my story starters this year and decided that they would also make perfect Halloween gifts for students. I took my story starters, added great graphics, put them on pencils, and slid on a super scary little plastic spider. It's like my own little trick or treating adventure for students. They can choose their own story starter and even use their new Halloween pencil and write away through the Halloween season.

You can purchase my black and white Halloween Story Starters {HERE} and the color version {HERE}.


Yeah!!
