This past weekend I was walking my dog in my neighborhood. My husband and I were checking out all the Halloween decorations and deciding the route we would take the kids on for trick or treating. We came upon a house full of decorations and I started cracking up! In the tree, was a witch that appears to have crashed into the tree. It looked something like this:
Now, I have seen this before, but for some reason it really struck my funny bone. The kids and hubs started making up stories about how the witch got there. The witch crew was drag racing, hexing while flying, a ghost was chasing her.... It went on and on.
The whole thing got me thinking.... my students would probably come up with some great stories too. The past few days, I have been working on creating a "splat" witch craft and writing activity. Here is what she looks like:
My kiddos filled out their graphic organizer today and will write their stories tomorrow. They are coming up with some great ideas too! One girl said another witch was chasing her and tried to cast a spell on her while they were flying and she crashed into a tree. I can't wait for them to share their stories with one another.
All the templates, writing pages and information can be found in my A Witch's Crash writing craftivty packet.
I am giving away one copy of this packet on my FB page.
