Quality Ingredients Make a Witch's Brew: Writing on Hallowe'en

October 29 and 30, 2003

In honour of Hallowe'en, let's practice using good quality adjectives, verbs, and nouns in our writing tonight. I've started a list below.

During class we'll discuss the holiday and students will contribute additional vocabulary for use in the writing assignment.

Adjectives, Verbs, and Nouns for Hallowe'en Writing

Adjectives: Scary, horrible, terrible, haunted, loud, tricky . . . .

Verbs: Carve, scrape, scream, shriek, moan . . . .

Nouns: Ghosts, goblins, witches, treats . . . .

 Writing Assignment:

Tonight, write a scary paragraph on Hallowe'en. Use as many of the verbs and adjectives as you can. Be sure to show this special children's day in all its horrible, interesting, and terrible detail!
