Prompts range from simple to challenging! You can assign prompts, have students choose, assign one a day for a week, or use them for the 13 days leading up to Halloween! Use however you choose!

INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT:

- Instructions for Use: We walk you through and provide you with suggestions for how to use each of the resources included in this unit.

- Our Figurative Language Cheat Sheet: Good narrative writing requires strong use of figurative language devices. This cheat sheet (which is FREE in our TpT store) is a great way to review with students, provide examples, and have students come up with their own. Use this resource to review and prepare students to use figurative language in their own Spooky Halloween Story!

- 13 Halloween Writing Prompts: Prompts range from simple to challenging and can be used to differentiate your instruction in your classroom! Please see below for two examples of the prompts we've included. This resource also has cute Halloween clipart!

- Halloween Lined Paper: A place for your students to write their final drafts! You can have your students also draw an accompanying picture and hang up their writing and picture side-by-side for a cute Halloween bulletin board!

- Narrative Writing Rubric: This rubric is a great resource to help you assess your students' writing. This is not specific to this Halloween resource, so you could make use of this rubric in any other narrative writing unit you use in your classroom!
