I’m popping in with a
spooky fun freebie for you :)
I knew I wanted to do a ghost bulletin board this year but I was having trouble thinking of a way to make it a little different than the other ghosts in my hall. First I was gonna go with “Gregarious Ghosts”. Then I decided it was a little early in the year for such a robust vocabulary lesson. A few random thoughts later, “Ghostly Greetings” popped in my head.
I noticed a few (very few) of my kiddos were attempting dialogue in their writing, so a little crash course on quotation marks wasn’t too out of left field. We practiced a few times on our interactive whiteboard and then got to work coming up with what we wanted our ghosts to say.
Students filled out this sheet and once I approved it, they were allowed to make their ghosts. Then we grouped them together, and voila, ghostly greetings!
I think it turned out pretty cute :)
And my favorite ghostly greeting…
I just love the bowling ball!
The next day, I reinforced the activity with another practice sheet. I didn’t get a shot of any of theirs but some of them were really, really fun and tongue-in-cheek.
What Did One Ghost Say to the Other?
“What are you being for Halloween?”
”A ghost. Duh.”
“Ahhhh! You’re skin is missing!”
”We’re ghosts. We don’t have any skin!”
Well, I got a chuckle out of them!
If you’re looking for a fun activity or mini-lesson to do in writing over the next few weeks go ahead and download it by clicking the picture below. I hope you’re students have fun with it!
It is my goal to be back everyday the rest of the week with a Halloween-themed FREEBIE for you. I haven’t been too good at following through on blogging goals though, so don’t hate me if you don’t hear from me for a day or two!
Have a great night!
