An enjoyable and easy-to-manage short story creative writing lesson with a Halloween theme. This pack is designed for teaching 1-2 English writing lessons at Grades 2 to 5 and is great for developing text structure, grammatical awareness and imaginative language.
*Note to my previous customers: This has been adapted from my 'Short Story Writing Lesson'. This original version has also been available in my TPT store for some time, so please check that you haven't already bought it!
The topic is writing a short story with a spooky Halloween theme. The teaching PowerPoint contains a story opening for the class to read and analyse, followed by an independent writing task, in which the children can write their own Halloween stories or complete the example story. Opportunities for the children to plan their ideas are also built in, allowing for the activity to be extended over 2 sessions.
In addition, there is an optional challenge activity contained in the PowerPoint, as well as writing support sheets for any children that require them. All planning is also included in the pack.
• Teacher PowerPoint presentation (with challenge task included)
• Two differentiated writing support sheets (lower and middle ability)
• Full planning grid
