What kid wouldn’t want a pet ghost?!! Recently, my students were thrilled with this Halloween writing prompt. I had no trouble encouraging excellent penmanship and best work as they brainstormed ideas about their new pet.
Halloween Writing Fun
Students were invited to draw what their pet ghost might look like. Some stuck to traditional ghost ideas, but several let their imaginations soar! A dragonesque ghost made an appearance. Others were definitely fashion-centered with lots of hair and accessories.
What would your ghost love to do? is one of the prompts. Scare, scream, fly around? Yes, some of our pet ghosts did that. But others just wanted to hang out and be friends, all depending on their creator’s personality.
Another important question is “What does your pet ghost enjoy eating?” Answers varied from pizza to spiders to Halloween candy. Our ghosts had quite the appetite!
And where would our pet ghosts live? The traditional haunted mansions and graveyards were mentioned. One clever ghost lives in the pipes, sneakingly similar to a Harry Potter spectre.
No ghost would be complete without a proper name. My students had so much fun coming up with their ghost pet’s name: Boo, Scary, Jonee, Lulu. You just never know what name they’ll come up with.
