Halloween Writing Freebies

Can it really be the middle of October already?  I have to be honest, I don't love Halloween (at school).  My principal LOVES Halloween we have a costume parade, parties in our rooms and even a storyteller. Several years ago, we started calling it Bookaween. The students are asked to dress up like a character from a book and they carry the book in the parade.

Here are a few of the quick and easy writing activities my students do the day after Bookaween. It's the day that every student wants to tell me about all the candy they got while trick-or-treating. So, I give them the candy list below and ask them to write down the candy names.  Click on the image to download the candy list form.

I also ask them to write a 5 senses poem about Halloween.  We write 5 senses poems throughout the year.   Click on the image to download the poetry form. 

This tired girl is off to bed!

  3. I love the candy list!!!!! Thanks!

  4. These are great! I wish my principal loved Halloween. We can't teach ANYTHING Halloween related--pumpkins, spiders, ghosts, witches, etc. I miss that esp. when I see all the wonderful things that great teachers are creating on their blogs.
