Halloween inspiration

I teach teenagers with learning disabiliities and it can be difficult to get them to write creatively. The story starters, image bank and word mat will be perfect for inspiration. Everything you provide is always presented in such a clear and attractive way. Thanks

That is really cool! I was talking to some of the teachers at my school just the other day about how we were looking forward to doing some Halloween fun! What a nice present to get. Now, let's look inside...

* Lots of things! This is a big size for a minipack!

* A lovely selection of banners and posters! "Day of the Dead" too!

* Wow! A beautiful guide, posters around the world, puzzles and games, maths exercises, English exercises, poetry exercises - this is terrific! I really think you might want to upgrade this from MiniPack to TeachingPack!

* And all beautifully presented as well! Really nice artwork. Well done!

Comments and suggestions? Well, if you must...I suppose anything can be improved. Maybe some spooky stories to tell, or some Halloween jokes - or perhaps some ideas for making costumes?

Terrific work! Five stars!
