PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Year of Journal Prompts Bundle includes: Over 300 writing prompts aligned with the ELA Common Core Standards for reading, writing, speaking and listening, language, and history strands.

This jumbo bundle contains two presentations with prompts that can be projected for the class (over 300 slides of writing prompts) AND a 68-page file (in both Word and PDF formats) with several student handouts and all the prompts in smaller, printable font.

The writing prompts include almost 200 based on events in history, current events, pop culture or holidays from around the world. The others are prompts that can be used anytime.

As a bonus, you also get 45 one-liners (finish the sentence) that can be used as exit slips or ice-breakers, and over 70 quotes that can be used as writing prompts, bringing the total to almost 400 writing exercises in all.

Includes teacher's guide, student handouts, and list of aligned standards.

Download the preview, which includes the August prompts, to get a glimpse of the overall product.

How can I preview and download? I keep getting a virus alert.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 17, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
I'm not sure why you are getting the message; it could just be the advertisement from a third party on the site. I have not had any problems downloading files for preview or for purchase. I guarantee you won't get a virus. Make sure you are clicking on the TpT buttons rather than the ad links (they are frustratingly close together). Thanks and I hope that helps! -Tracee

What grade level is this geared toward?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 5, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Elizabeth - Thanks for your inquiry. It is mainly 7th-12th grade, though many of the reading passages are simple enough for 4th-6th grades. -Tracee

Hi there! These look awesome, I am just wondering how specifically they tie in to Common Core?
Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 29, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Erika! Thanks for your interest. These are the anchor standards they cover: Writing: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.2, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.3, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.4, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.9, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.10; Reading: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.10; and I included directions/guidelines for using them in speaking/listening activities, as well. Many of the prompts are 2-3 paragraphs in length, covering various topics. I included handouts that address specific standards. I hope that helps! -Tracee

Do your task cards include the same number of prompts as "A Year of Journal Writing Prompts"
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 23, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Janet! They only include the dated prompts, so there are approximately 115 fewer in the task cards. Thanks so much for your interest! -Tracee

When I downloaded the files, it tells me they are all encrypted. Can you email me the files in a non-encrypted format? Snyder86@sbcglobal.net
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 14, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Snyder86 - I am sorry you are having difficulties. On the "my purchases" page there is a link to get help for technical difficulties. The files aren't actually encrypted, so something must have gone wrong with the download. The file itself is too large to email. Thanks and I hope you are able to access. -Tracee

I need a non zip format because my computer will not allow it. Can you send it in a non zip format?

Betsy
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 26, 2012Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Betsy - What kind of computer do you have? The reason I ask is because a few of the files are over 10MB each, which are too large to email, so you would only be getting an incomplete product. If you have a PC, you'll need the free download from WinZip (or something comparable) to open a zipped file. There is a link in the help menu and also if you scroll down on my Q&A page. Tech support can help, too. Email info@teacherspayteachers.com
Thanks so much and sorry you are having problems with the zipped file.

I can not open any of the files in the daily journal prompts that I just purchased. My computer says that the files are damaged. I bought others that were in a zip file and I didn't have any problems. Could you please advise me on what I should do.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 14, 2012Tracee Orman answered:
I'm so sorry you are having problems, Critz. The site has been very busy & many of us have had the same problem. It looks like it may have slowed a little, so you can try downloading again. If you still can't download or have problems tomorrow, contact TpT support. This file is way to large to email, so hopefully they can help you out! Also, switching browsers sometimes works, too. -Tracee
