This PowerPoint was created for students in grades 6 - 8 to practice both understanding elements in a narrative and to become familiar with expectations for writing a scary story (though this can simply be used on Halloween or around Halloween as a fun warm up).
In this PowerPoint students will read/view approximately five, two sentence scary stories which were initially submitted for a Reddit contest a few years back for a contest.
As a group, or individually, students will learn that the five story elements are present in each two sentence scary story.
Following this, there is an activity for students to create their own!
***I have a PDF version of this that I can email you at your request. It has a fun Halloween font that does not upload to TPT on the PowerPoint. I uploaded the PPT as this can be modified and the PDF can't. However, I am happy to email it to you!***
