Halloween Writing Lessons

I love holidays, especially Halloween! And I love having a festive classroom. But I nearly always plan week to week (due to nothing ever going as I planned!) and hate interrupting a Unit to incorporate holiday fun stuff!

Which is why I created this little Activity Pack to go along with any writing unit. 

Writing narratives? This fits right in! Writing expository texts? This works as well! Have some fun with the materials included and make them work with whatever you're doing! You'll be able to have some fun and stay on pace! Check out my Halloween Writing Activities to work in some fun!

Argumentative Writing Lesson Plans for 6th Graders + Giveaway!

If you're on the East Coast then you probably are still swimming to work. This rain has been absurd. Every time I look at the weather, I swear it's a constant sea of green, yellow, or red.  We're definitely ready for some sunshine. Luckily I'm not in any danger, but many around me are. That's why 50% of my Argument Writing Unit sales, from today until next Wednesday (Oct. 14), will go directly to those who have been effected by the storms.

Which leads me to... my newest writing unit!! Just for 6th grade teachers- this unit shows you how to teach argument writing and has EVERYTHING you could ever need. Seriously.

In fact, I'll be giving away one of these units to a few lucky teachers! All you need to do is enter below!
