PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**I update this yearly!***

This recently-updated packet is created to provide calendar pages for August-June. Each day has potential writing prompt journal ideas for student or teacher use. It is geared towards grades 1-5, but primarily primary. Each calendar page includes common core standards as reminders for students to include in their work.

This recently expanded 57-page packet provides full color and black & white calendar pages. It is in PDF and fully editable Word formats.

Prompts are written as questions, sentence starters or statements and require students to use imaginative, expository or narrative writing styles. Prompts are geared to get students interested about writing (and drawing!) by creating a personal journal where they have the privacy and freedom to express themselves daily.

Teachers may use these with student journals, as homework assignments, for fast finishers that need something that is academic to work on, or as writing prompt ideas for standardized test preparation.

Check out the preview for a FREEBIE of September 2014 in polka dot, chevron, full color and black & white.

This unit includes:
Fully editable Word Document
August 2013-June 2014 Calendar pages
Polka Dot Full Color and Black & White versions
Chevron Full Color and Greyscale versions
Black & White version
School Calendar Holidays included
Narrative, Expository and Imaginative writing prompts
Holiday-related prompts
Free-write opportunities

Thank you!

On  October 29, 2012Everything Elementary answered:
It is a .zip file, which contains a pdf and a .docx file. If it does not open with your current browser (like Internet Explorer), try a different one (like Mozilla or Chrome). This has happened with another document in the past for me for some users. If you have Windows, try this free file: http://www.winzip.com/downwz.htm If you have a Mac, try http://download.cnet.com/MacZip/3000-2250_4-10025248.html
