This unit has materials to teach the three different kinds of writing that are required in the Second Grade Common Core ELA Standards. Students will write an imaginative narrative about a time they turn into a ghost! Students will make a cute ghost craft to go with their finished story. Students will write a persuasive paper to try and persuade their parents that they should be allowed to eat candy every day! Students will make a jack-o-lantern filled with candy to go with this writing. Finally, students will write an informational paper on bats. This assignment includes a page for students to read about bats. Students will label the parts of a bat to go with their completed story. Each story has directions, planning mats and story paper to copy the completed story. I have also included example story planning mats for each story type as well as pictures of the completed story paper with the craft. This October writing pack contains enough writing to last for the month of October. The finished products make great hallway or bulletin board displays.
