Sunburst fifth graders in Mrs. Shawn Christiaens class had a great time not only creating haunted houses, but writing up descriptive summaries to sell them to potential buyers. Pictured with their masterpieces are, from back left, Devon Hutton, Elonzo Benjamin, Jackie Robbins and Colter Sandon; front row, Parker Berthelote, Vince Taylor and Wyatt Rogers.

Descriptive writing is a skill that develops over time and Sunburst Elementary fifth grade teacher, Shawn Christiaens, tries to incorporate the skill whenever she can. Finding fun ways to do so can be a challenge, but making it a part of a Halloween-themed project is just one way she has gotten her students writing. With October being the month of everything spooky, and Christiaens also being a part-time real estate agent and owner of dtj insurance and real estate, the answer seemed obvious.

“I came up with the idea of writing a listing for their haunted houses,” said Christiaens. “Students wrote a listing and then drew their houses. The project has taught them word choice, descriptive writing, the who, what, when, where, how and why of writing an ad or invitation, and spatial order.”

Writing descriptive summaries of the haunted houses for sale has proven to be a great project for students in the past and this year wasn’t any different. Christiaens’ fifth graders put a lot of thought and creativity into the project, writing fantastic descriptions for their haunted houses sure to impress any spook or spirit looking for a new place to call home.
