An adapted graphic organizer for WritingFix's Hoots and Howls Halloween Poetry Lesson.

This is the organizer I use for the students to build vocabulary showing a "scary night" without using those words.
Ghost Hour Spook Hour by Eve Bunting is another wonderful book to use.

I used this graphic organizer with Only a Witch can Fly.  We watched the story on Tumblebooks and then discussed activities that only a ________ could  _________.  They came up with amazing stories like "Only a wizard can do magic...."  "Only a dragon can breathe fire...."  etc.

I'm playing around with ways to keep track of formative assessments while transitioning to the Common Core Standards.  This is my rough draft, and I'd like some feedback.  I'm thinking I will type student names - make copies - and keep in  a binder.  The opposite (or facing) page will be blank to add post-it notes resulting from conferring or observations.
