Halloween Story Starters

Halloween Story Starters
Halloween is right around the corner.  Have fun using your imagination while encouraging your young writer with a few creative Halloween story starters.
Halloween Story Starters

These are great for family time. Share a combined oral story around the table or for independent writing combine it with an author’s night.  Have your child illustrate their story as well using a variety of art media.

For younger children, don’t forget that you can write their ideas down for them.  Print out the free Halloween story starter printable and post for your kids or cut the story starters into strips and put in a Halloween container/bin.  Most of all, have fun being creative with your little ones while inspiring important skills.
