This is a short story writing assignment with a Christmas theme! This theme helps students focus their writing and provides topic suggestions if they can't think of what they would like to write about. It includes a few planning pages for characters and the story line. The last pages are a dialogue cheat sheet that explains to students how to write dialogue between characters. This helps clear up errors students usually have with how to properly use quotation marks. I have included a very detailed rubric that makes marking the short stories a lot easier!
