In this Halloween writing unit students will have the opportunity to explore different Halloween books. They will create setting and character ideas and write a fiction halloween story based on ideas from different picture books. Also this download includes a nonfiction writing plan, writing checklist, and final draft copies. I have found using a plan and providing a checklist for students to use when editing their stories has really helped improve their writing! For students who still need practice with mechanics I have included a capitals and periods practice page. Another bonus is a Halloween word wall to help with spelling. Enjoy!
