Halloween Cinquain

Tomorrow's October 1st!  Wow, this year is flying by...and if the trend continues, you can be sure Halloween will be here before you know it!  If you're looking for a quick activity that follows the theme of the season and is, at the same time, a good review of the writing process and a little grammar, my Halloween Cinquain may be your answer.  Whether you are in search of a task for the whole class or an activity for a literacy station, this would work perfectly at the 5th and 6th grade level...and would be useful if differentiating for various skill levels in a 7th or 8th grade class.

This 2 page activity has an example of the poem your students will be writing and space for planning.

You will also find a guide for your students to use in writing their rough draft and questions to guide revising and editing.  The bottom half of the page above is for writing the final draft and, once separated from the top along the dotted line, can easily be used for publishing - sharing with an audience on a bulletin board or in a writing folder.
