School Bulletin Board for Fall (November/Scare Crow Themed)


This is a school bulletin board set for fall (November). The activity focuses on how to bring characters to life when we are writing!



This is a November bulletin board set! The activity included focuses on second grade writing skills, specifically relating to Lucy Calkins. The assignment asks students to create a story about a crow and make their crow come to life by using words to make it MOVE, TALK, FEEL and THINK! My students have needed some practice using words to help describe their characters while they are writing so this was a great assessment to see if they understood how to encompass all the ways to make them come to life! I read the story “The Little Scarecrow Boy” by Margaret Wise Brown as a mentor text because there is great detail about the scarecrow. Their assignment was to focus on the crow and use more words to bring him to life! Even though this was created based on Lucy Calkins, I think the lesson itself really helps many writers of any grade!


– Bulletin Board Signage (WE’RE NOT SCARED CROWS TO WRITE!)

– I print my signage on Astro Bright and/or card-stalk to make the letters colorful
