These Thanksgiving story covers and story paper can be used for beginning writers through more advanced writers.
You could have students work on one story over the course of three or four days. Or, you could have students write one each day over the course of a week. I typically spend many days with just one story. I encourage my students to preplan, write, edit, select a cover, and illustrate it. When it is done, we have a publishing event where students get in groups of four and read their stories to each other. This motivates students to do their best work because they know someone will be hearing their story! I also put their finished story up on the bulletin board in the hallway.

*Great for published stories and bulletin board displays!
Continuation Papers: They can decide how many pages they want to write for their story. This allows for differentiation because it enables students to write at their own pace and level.
