FOR SPOOKY TALE LOVERS!
Make narrative writing fun and S-P-OO-K-Y! This is a revised edition (that originated as a free version), with several more pages and revisions made to help facilitate writing for hesitant writers.
How many kids love to read and write Halloween stories? Most kids love to read scary stories - as long as they're not too scary! Here's a chance for them to write their own with a little scaffolding. The scaffold is that they have a good start or context to begin writing.
This writing activity is mostly geared for grades 2 through 4.
This could be a week's worth of writing lessons if you choose to have students pick a starter per day. The same planner / writing frame and stationery papers can be used again for new stories.
Easy writing process--and easy independent work for class, substitute lesson plan, or homework.
These Halloween spooky tale starters allow for differentiation in your classroom.
This is an opportunity for collaborative writing, buddy writing or independent writing. Every year my students enjoy the spirit of the season with this simple, success-building activity. The vocabulary lists and pre-writing page will help accommodate and scaffold hesitant intermediate grade students. This writing resource can be tailored by you to incorporate in a differentiated classroom. This is simple and flexible enough to make adjustments for individual needs.
*This resource corresponds with Common Core Standards for Narrative Writing.
You'll be surprised at how much your students will enjoy these Halloween scary story starters.
