Halloween Writing Prompts!

Halloween is a fantastic motivator for getting kids to write!

That's why I have created a few things that you can use to get kids enthusiastic about writing this Halloween.

           Halloween Writing Prompts  

They can write spooky stories, recipes for witch's brews, safety hints for trick or treating, list ideas for Halloween parties or even facts and opinions about Halloween!

Sometimes all they need is a sentence starter to get their imaginations firing! 

Halloween Writing Quilt

If you would like to get kids writing and creating an interesting display of their writing, then you will love the Halloween Writing Quilt Squares.

Their are 7 quilt squares to choose from and can you use them all or use just one.

The children do the writing activity on the sheet then color the small quilt squares.

They then cut out the large square and these can be displayed with their classmates' squares to make a large Halloween Quilt display with their writing and their coloring.

The Halloween Writing Quilt Squares are available from my Teachers Pay Teachers store at

If you would like to create a Halloween Quilt with your class you can get the Halloween quilt squares at https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Halloween-Writing-2135822
