This Halloween Writing Unit was designed to create a full month of writing for your classroom. Simply make a copy of each of these pages, staple together (with the cover page provided) and students can work all month on creative, fun, and meaningful writing for the whole month of October.
This Writing pack contains two parts – 4 Halloween Writing Assignments and 5 October themed journal pages.
Each of the 4 Halloween Writing Assignments have a brainstorm page. These pages have directions for each story and will get your students thinking about what they write before they begin.
I have included 3 different differentiated writing pages for each of the 4 Halloween Writing Assignments. This will help you meet the needs of your students, and also allows these writing pages to be used for all grade levels K-6.
I have included two different grading rubrics. The first rubric can be used for grading each of the 4 Halloween Writing Assignments. The second one can be used as an overall grading checklist for the entire Writing Pack. Full sized and quarter sized rubrics are included. (I like to staple the smaller sized rubrics to the top of each story after I have graded them.)
