What’s Inside the Magic Cauldron?

Imagine asking your students, “¿Prefieres ser amigos con una bruja o un fantasma?” or “Would you rather be friends with a witch or a ghost?” These are just glimpses of the thought-provoking questions included in the bilingual Halloween writing prompts I’ve created. This digital, no-prep resource comes ready to project on Google Slides or distribute via Google Classroom, featuring 40 Halloween-themed prompts that encourage your students to articulate their opinions in a fun, stress-free environment.

How to Brew the Perfect Lesson

Here are some spellbinding ways you can use these writing prompts in your classroom:

  • As a Daily Writing Exercise: Kick off each class with a new prompt, using it for journal writing or a quick opinion piece.
  • For a Lively Brain Break: Let students choose their stance physically by moving to different sides of the room, then sharing their reasoning.
  • To Spark Conversations: Use these prompts as conversation starters in Spanish Language Development (SLD) or English Language Development (ELD) sessions.
