Have your students been driving you a little crazy lately? Are they all fired up for Halloween and need to burn some energy? Here’s a way to really drive them nuts: give them this insanely challenging word find puzzle. (No, it’s not impossible…I’ve had several students complete in one sitting…but I may have had some go a little bonkers trying, too…)
If the word find is just not their thing, have them choose one of the great writing prompts I also included on this free download. It includes prompts such as:
Describe the best way for children to celebrate Halloween.
Create a holiday you would like to substitute for Halloween.
Describe a neighborhood street on Halloween night.
Describe in detail an unusual Halloween costume.
Explain the likely consequences of vandalizing property.
Persuade your parents to let you have a Halloween party on a school night.
Have a great Halloween!
