Our paragraph writing class was Halloween themed. The students had to pretend that they were real estate agents and create an ad for a haunted house that they would be trying to sell to a monster or another creepy creature. The students really enjoyed being able to use their wild imaginations when coming up with features of their haunted house. In class the students learned exactly what a feature was and how to describe in writing using adjectives. They also got the opportunity to use multiple different types of graphic organizers. Additionally, they learned about connecting words and how to write persuasively using attention grabbing sentences. The students had to write their final ads in a specific format which had them name their house, come up with an address, and a name for their real estate company, as well as highlight main features, and the ad itself. After the students were finished they were given the opportunity to type their ads and draw their houses. They then all got the opportunity to share their ads during snack.
