PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Halloween reading and writing resource includes 4 mini-activities leading up to students writing their own Halloween story, 2 engaging reader's theatre scripts, an illustrated word wall and 18 story starters for telling/writing more Halloween stories. The details:

a 30-word word wall in large font to be displayed in the classroom

the same word wall in smaller font which can be added to the students' notebooks or duotangs to be used as a writing tool. The smaller cards can also be used to create vocabulary/reading games such as concentration matching picture with words or sorting activities.

2 Readers' Theater scripts, the first one tells the story of a pumpkin looking for a kid to turn him into a jack-o-lantern and a kid looking for the perfect pumpkin. The second is the story of a good witch who wants kids to come to her house for trick or treating and not be scared.

4 mini-writing activities: write 3-4 things that are happening in a haunted house; imagine a problem in the haunted house and solve it; draw characters in a haunted house and describe them; describe Halloween night. Once the students have completed these activities they are well prepared to write a Halloween story in their journals.

18 story-writing starters, a variety of story starters for students to continue to develop their story telling skills, orally or in writing.
