HALLOWEEN SECRET SELFIE - descriptive writing

HALLOWEEN SECRET SELFIE - descriptive writing

This craftivity is a great way to celebrate Halloween, with a 21st-century twist on descriptive writing. Students will write down 4 descriptive phrases, and either draw or place a picture of a Halloween image. They will then decorate a small square and stick it like a post-it note on top of their picture, to make it a surprise! Suggestions: -print these printables on coloured paper to really stand out. -encourage to children to decorate and colour in the backgrounds. -collect work from children, or display, and play a game to guess which phrases describe which Halloween image. ---- Thanks to FFG clipart!
