I think if you include a simple and quick craft for students to make and attach to their writing prompt, they'll get more excited. I've included 24 scarecrow-themed writing prompts for them to choose from. As you can see by the photo, 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.
This craftivity will be FREE for an entire year, then it will be updated & put in my TpT shop.

For your convenience, I've included a PREVIEW of the packet here.
