Halloween Frog Writing Prompt
What would you do if a witch turned you into a frog? That’s the question this interesting Halloween prompt asks kids to ponder. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to hear my own children’s answers!
As early as first grade, kids can write their own spooky stories down with this adorable creative writing assignment. Start with just a few sentences. Then, encourage them to write even more fantastic tales!
Read a Halloween Story
Stephen King, a famous American horror story author, is known for saying “If you want to be a good writer, you must do two things above all others: you must read a lot and you must write a lot.” This Halloween, encourage your children to write down their own spooky tales and spend time reading spooky stories together too.
Reading together won’t just make them better writers, according to the experts, it’s the best way to help kids become better readers too.
Halloween Books for Kids
Here are some fun scary stories to get you started:
- Coraline by Neil Gaiman
- In a Dark, Dark Room by Alvin Schwartz
- The House with a Clock in its Walls by John Bellairs
I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to spend some quality time on the couch reading not so scary stories to my kids this Halloween. It’s definitely become a tradition filled with learning and fun at our house.
If your kids need more help brainstorming ideas for their spooky Halloween writing activity, try Rory’s Story Cubes available on Amazon. The expansion packs are perfect for Halloween stories!
Host a Spooky Halloween Reading
Another fun Halloween idea is to have kids read their completed Halloween writing activities to their classmates or friends via Zoom. You can have everyone meet online and read their stories aloud in the dark with flashlights for a spooky Halloween themed reading they won’t soon forget!
And if you homeschool, have your children share their stories with your co-op or friends during a fun outdoor campfire reading.
Hosting a reading is a great way to enjoy Halloween together while learning. Plus, your kids will get the chance to build their reading fluency skills as they read aloud to their friends or family this Halloween. Kids will love getting feedback from others about their stories too.
Consider making special treats for the even like s’mores, popcorn, cookies, or mailing special Halloween treats to guests beforehand with your very own spooky invitations.
More Halloween Writing Prompts to Explore
If your kids love the witch frog craftivity, you can try some of these other fantastic Halloween writing prompts for kids:
- Pretend you are a piece of candy on Halloween. Write about your adventures.
- Invent and Haunted House and try to sell it.
- What should your teacher/parent be for Halloween? Why?
With children who are just beginning to write, consider ignoring misspelled words and grammar initially. Encourage them to get their thoughts on paper first. There will always be time for edits later and you don’t want to discourage them from sharing their amazing ideas and creativity.
Another way to get creative with your kids this Halloween is by exploring sensory bins together. Sensory bins encourage kids to explore their senses and be curious in a concrete, tactile way. These two Halloween sensory activities are perfect for toddlers, preschoolers, and older children too:
- Halloween Spaghetti Sensory Bin: This sensory experience uses cooked spaghetti noodles for a tactile experience your kids won’t soon forget. I like to hide small plastic Halloween toys for my kids to enjoy in this spaghetti bin.
- Halloween Sensory Bags: Hair gel, bats, and eyeballs combine for a spooky orange sensory bag that’s mess free and a whole lot of fun. It’s perfect for toddlers who might make a mess with a bin.
- Halloween Sensory Rice Bin: With dry pasta and rice, this bin has so many different textures and surprises for your preschooler to explore. Consider hiding Halloween treasure for your little ones to find.
Research shows us that sensory play can help children build important nerve connections in the brain and help kids learn to tackle complex tasks. Sensory play also supports language development, cognitive growth, and early motor skills.
So adding a little sensory learning fun to your Halloween themed lessons this October could make a big difference for your early learners.
