This product is designed to help students build tier two, higher level vocabulary and further develop writing skills through a vocabulary exercise followed by a narrative writing assignment. The story starters themselves include a variety of levels so that you can differentiate for your learners and the vocabulary exercise before is a great tool for learners to use as they write. It is common core aligned, and the standards captured for this lesson are listed within the product. **This is a part of my Halloween Mini-Unit**
The theme is Halloween, and I have had GREAT success with this in my classroom. My students ask for it. The lesson is very flexible and can be used in a variety of ways: work can be edited and revised, typed on the computer and then shared within the classroom; or you can simply use it as a creative writing assignment. It will take between one to two class periods to complete.
