I hope everyone has had the best back to school year ever. In honor of the fall equinox and Teacher Author Appreciation Day,  I'm teaming up with some 15 other TpT sellers and collaborators to bring you an amazing weekend of steals, and #tagday deals and giveaways for grades 3-6 and SPED. You don’t want to miss out on this SALE, so be sure to mark your calendars. It begins Friday Sept. 23, 2016 @12 am EST and ends Monday Sept. 25, 2016 @ 12 am.

Fall Writing Activities
First up a set of Fall Writing Activities with everything you need for the season. 32 Writing task cards consisting of Expository, Persuasive and Narrative writing ideas and story starters. Themes include Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, Sandwich Day, Election Day, Candy Day and Cake Day. As an added extra, a humorous poster of a thinking turkey with the quote,"If this Turkey Could Talk, What Would He Say?" Great for discussion and or written assignment.
Halloween Spooks
Next is an excerpt from my BOOtober Creative Writing Resource. The teacher will read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving. You may choose a different story if you like. Discuss what makes a scary story. Be sure to let them know that suspense and surprise endings are important elements in this genre. For a collaborative activity, they will write a scary Halloween tale with their partners and each person will contribute. To spark their natural competitiveness, let them know that they will read their piece to the class who will choose which tale is the scariest. You could give the winning group something special for Halloween. When the appointed day arrives, have them sit in a circle and pretend they are around the
campfire, they can use flashlights for the effect.  Turn off the lights, play some scary music and set the stage.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and my final  resource being offered , is called, What am I Thankful Forand includes a values lesson that will help your students  think about this.
What am I Thankful For?
