Halloween-Themed Character Traits Bulletin Board

It is such a perfect time to teach CHARACTER TRAITS in October because I wanted my bulletin board to have a Halloween theme while displaying the awesome work of my ELL students on character traits.

Of course, I did not have to spend a lot of time thinking about what design to use because Pinterest has it all.  From skeletons to witches, bats, owls, monsters, skeletons, ghosts, zombies, and haunted houses – search it and you’ll have it.

I narrowed my search to haunted houses, and found inspiration in these designs found at afaithfulattempt.blogspot.com and bulletin board ideas.org.

Although my students completed various tasks on character traits, which I am going to share in another blog, I thought the CHARACTER SEFIES activity was perfect match with the haunted house design of our bulletin board.  Again, I searched for character selfies template on Pinterest and to my amazement, there were several really awesome templates that I found.  Most of them are for Back To School activities with “All About Me” writing prompt, but I still found what I was looking for, which was on CHARACTER TRAITS.  Click on the links below and they will take you to Teacherspayteachers.com.  Thank you, The Pinspired Teacher for an awesome freebie!   Please follow her on TPT.  I used the phone template by Stephanie McConnell of thenewprincipalprinciples.blogspot.com to illustrate their character selfies.  Check out her TPT products here.
