1-2-3 Come Make Some Scarecrow Craftivities With Me
I really believe that if you give students a simple and quick little craft to attach to their writing prompt, they will be a lot more excited to get down to business.
With that in mind, I designed "Peeking Scarecrow".
As you can see by the pictures, there are 2 ways to display children's work. Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board, or look sweet hanging back-to-back from the ceiling.
I've included 24 scarecrow-themed writing prompts for students to choose from.
Run them off, trim and give students a choice, or toss them in a basket and have them pick one.
If they are unspired, they have the option to choose another, or swap with a classmate.
Children glue the prompt to their scarecrow and record their final draft on a complimentary color of construction paper.
The packet also includes a sample, so that you can easily whip off an example to share with your kiddos.
For that extra touch of pizzazz, there's a blank border template that students can write inside. Encourage older students to type their final drafts.

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy TGIF. I'm off to hit some garage sales with my daughter. Wishing you love and laughter and a happy-ever-after.
