What educators are saying

My 5th graders absolutely loved this! I had students who hate writing, using their recess time to finish their stories! Fabulous!
My students loved this! I had them match sentences to the pictures, then we used the pictures for a power write, and finally they created their own scary stories.


Scary Story Writing 101

Scary Story Writing 101 is an entertaining and effective way to review narrative story elements.

Students use photos - embedded with single-line prompts - to write creepy stories they’ll want to share. This is, without question, one of my students’ favorite narrative units of all time.

Students will...

…use contrasting settings to create a mood,

…design a “something’s not right” event or character, and

…surprise readers with a heart-stopping“Uh-Oh” Moment.
