Do you need a structured writing activity that isn't necessarily Halloween related? I originally created this one page freebie to go with Conversation with a Gingerbread House. I decided to make it less seasonally dependent.
Students choose two characters that could have a conversation and write the dialogue. In this sentence frame, the tags and punctuation is already written for them. Once they have it correctly in this format, they could copy it onto a new sheet (or using the computer) once again practicing the correct placement of tags and punctuation.
Also this weekend I am giving away one copy of Writing Trickster Tales with Intermediate Students from my Teacher's Notebook Store. Enter to win October 31-November 3.
