The Haunted House -- A Printable Edit and Story Starter for Halloween

Double click on the image to create a printable worksheet. Jerry Webster

Edit worksheets like these give students opportunities to practicing their editing skills. Using the Edit Mark Table your students can find the errors and correct them using edit marks. A number is provided at the end of each sentence so you can more easily score them, and your students can see they have the found correct number of errors.

Each of these edits also serve as a story starter: I would recommend that you use the same multi-step strategy you use for other writing projects: Brainstorming/planning, rough draft, student edit, teacher conference, final draft and publish, or something similar.
