With this writing activity, your students will act like a newspaper reporter. They will craft a fictional piece but also write to inform. Included in this is a think sheet where they can jot ideas down before they actually write their article. I also included transitional words for your students to refer to as they write. I like to enlarge their actual final draft paper because they look great posted for all to see.
Police Catch Elves on a Joy Ride
New Elf Named Elfis Presley
Unusual Gift Under the Tree
Santa Gets Stuck in a Chimney
And 12 more titles to choose from...
A blank title line is included to encourage your creative students.
