Occupied October

autumn-in-parkHello everyone!

A lot happens in October. The leaves change colors, people celebrate different holidays (Columbus Day, Yom Kippur, Halloween, etc.), and it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Your writing assignment is to write about autumn, October, or one of the October holidays. Here are a few suggestions to get the creative juices flowing.

  1. Poetry: Write a poem about this time or year or what this time of year or a related holiday means to you.
  2. Non-fiction: Write a book for children explaining a fall theme (e.g. Why do leaves change colors? What causes the seasons to change?).
  3. Non-fiction: Write a recipe or craft idea for adults.
  4. Fiction: Write a short story set during this time of year and relate the conflict to one of the October holidays.

Happy writing!
