Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year... smack in the middle of the school week! I know that my students will have the "Halloween Wiggles" so I like to have some activities that I can do with them to help them focus and get back on track!
Here's a fun freebie for you to use as a writing prompt, poetry prompt, art prompt or simply as classroom decor! You can download it at my TpT store OR you can download it directly from my blog by clicking the image below.
I like to display the poster (or project it with a document camera) and have the students use the words or images as prompts for a story or poem. Perhaps they have to include the purple words in their first paragraph, or put 2 orange words in their first sentence.... Why not write a haiku using a word from each color?? Or write a poem using the images as a starting point?
Students could also use the poster as an inspiration to create their own "word art" or "subway art". (You can find lots of other examples of "subway art" online.)
I'm sure you can think of even more ways to use the poster! Please share your ideas... I'd love to hear more!
The full download includes a copy of the poster in color, a copy in black/white and a sheet of b/w pumpkin writing paper!
Have a Happy Halloween!
