Ideas for Halloween Poems and Poetry Teaching Resources blue bullet point Pumpkin Acrostic Poems: The month of October is a fun time to introduce some poetry writing activities into your language arts lessons.

blue bullet point For this Halloween poetry lesson, students write an acrostic poem with the letters that form the word "P.U.M.P.K.I.N."

blue bullet point Students cut out the pumpkin templates along the thick borders, and then they have unique pumpkin shaped Halloween poems.

blue bullet point These finished pumpkin acrostic poems will make a colorful bulletin board display of your students' work during the month of October.

blue bullet point This set of Halloween poems includes:

  • first draft writing worksheet
  • black and white pumpkin poetry template
  • color pumpkin poetry template
  • matching 5 page bulletin board display banner

Halloween Poetry and Poem Pumpkin Templates blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete this Halloween poetry assignment is included in this set of teaching resources. All that you will need is scissors and coloring pencils.

blue bullet point For creative writing assignments, I believe that it is important for students to go through the steps of the writing process.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin writing their Halloween poems on their final draft pumpkin templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Then, they edit and revise their poems on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft worksheet that is included in this set of Halloween teaching resources.

blue bullet point After students have edited and revised the first drafts of their pumpkin poems, you should give them their final draft pumpkin templates.

blue bullet point The pumpkin templates measures 7 inches in length and 7.5 inches in width.

blue bullet point These pumpkin templates have thick border lines, so it is easy for the students to cut out their pumpkin templates themselves.

Unique and Fun Halloween Pumpkin Shaped Writing Templates and Worksheets blue bullet point As I am introducing this poetry assignment to my students, I like to begin by sharing my pumpkin poem with my students.

blue bullet point At the front of my classroom, I display an example of what the final draft pumpkin templates look like. By providing a visual example at the very beginning of this lesson activity, my students know what their Halloween poems will look like when they have completed their final drafts.

blue bullet point For final draft poetry assignments, when I give my students fun templates to write on, I have found that they tend to use their best effort, and they are more careful to not make careless spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

blue bullet point I have included a color pumpkin template for you to use as a visual example to share with your students.

Halloween Bulletin Board Displays Ideas for Elementary Classrooms blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of valuable time to assemble their bulletin board displays. Many teachers spend hours of time cutting out large display letters or making a banner at home on their computers.

blue bullet point This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum, so I have included a matching 5 page banner for your Halloween poetry bulletin board display.

blue bullet point If you have access to a laminating machine, you can laminate your banner so that it is durable and you can use it year after year for bulletin board displays of these Halloween P.U.M.P.K.I.N. Acrostic Poems.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
