This fun writing project is a simple, starter version for writing tests in the older grades. Students are presented with 3 choices and the information, in a simple story, that goes with them. Students then take notes on the three items they are presented with-ghosts, candy, and jack-o-lanterns. (All are safe for small kids.) From there, students will then write an opinion piece using their notes about which symbol they consider to be the best! There are both color and black line note guides and 3 different lined papers included. Be sure to check out my other writing products.
