Monster Writing & a late Freebie!

Don't you just love this time of year?

From now through Christmas, I just can't get enough!  From the themes, decorations, holidays, weather.... I love it!

With Halloween being so close, it was time for some creative writing!  So what better way than to become Monsters! 

To get us started....we needed to plan!!  I made this simple monster planning page where it allowed students to brainstorm their thoughts in the boxes.  We shared all of our ideas together and then students could select from that list, or of course, add their own idea!

After students had their thoughts on paper, they wrote their story!  I found these ADORABLE little monster crafts at Hobby Lobby, which went perfect with their writing!!

You can get your copy of this monster planning page HERE!

The students really loved this and came up with some great creative ideas!    I thought these were just too cute not to put up on a bulletin board display! 


I can't wait for more creative writing this year and fun learning-filled activities! 
Have a great weekend!!
