Writing in elementary school can be especially tricky to reluctant writers. Some students just aren’t motivated to write unless they are writing about something FUN! I’ve found that students are the most involved in their writing as the holidays approach, especially if the writing is about something they like. These 5 Halloween crafts for kids are a fun way to motivate students to write and get creative.
