BOLO-A Sneak Peek at my Middle School Halloween Product

What does BOLO stand for? "Be on the Look Out"! Thank you to these wonderful bloggers for creating an awesome linky party for products that are in the works and ones you should look out for!

What have I been working on lately?

I am currently working on two products. First is my Halloween product: Dracula's True Story-Teaching Narrative Writing, Perspective and Parody. In this product, students will learn the meanings of these terms, and they will be asked to apply them to the activity. The second product I am working on right now is Centers in the Middle School Classroom-A Thorough Guide to Creating Centers for Your Classroom with Activities and Ideas. I thought I would give you a sneak peek preview of my Halloween product!

The activity ask the students to create a parody song to Taylor Swift's, "Bad Blood". Here they have to create a song that tells Dracula's true story about how he has come to be and how he is misjudged. How much fun will your middle school students have working on a song about Dracula!

The product will include the full lesson with the Common Core Standards, a ditto for the students to review parody, narrative, and perspective, Taylor Swift's song lyrics to "Bad Blood", a ditto to model the song lyrics, and colorful Halloween-themed ditto to display the final product.

Have any suggestions? I would love to hear from you! Would you like to see anything else?

Here are some sneak peek preview pictures of the product:
