This resource has been created with elementary students in mind. It can be used with lessons on fictional narrative writing, descriptive writing, sentence building, paragraph writing, revising, and many other opportunities for writing practice in the classroom. This would be a great activity to place in a writing center, use after a whole group lesson, or use in guided groups. The possibilities are abundant!
There are 12 fall-themed fictional narrative writing prompts. None include Halloween, though I do have a separate fictional narrative set for Halloween that you can find here: Halloween Narrative Writing
I have included 60 fall words on two pages to help students to generate ideas and build sentences. The first page includes a list of the words separated by parts of speech (nouns, adjectives, and verbs). I have left the number of required words blank so that you can fill it in with your requirement to allow for differentiation. There are 60 words in total.
The second page of words includes all of the words in a chart. Both lists contain the same words, but the second chart can be used with younger students. They can cut out each word and then place the ones that they want to use on their paper and write their words around them. This can be great for sentence building. Younger students love cutting out the words and moving and manipulating them. The two different options make this a great resource for differentiation.
There are graphic organizers included to help students to plan their writing. A revising and editing checklist are included as well.
Seven different designs of stationery are included. As most teachers have limited access to color ink, all stationery is in black and white.
As always, please contact me before leaving feedback should you have any questions or concerns. I am happy to help whenever I can!
