25 Day sample of my quick write prompts for the whole school year.
"One quick writing prompt for every day of the school year.
These prompts are meant to inspire five minutes of uninterrupted writing every day, in order to help your students grow as writers.
There are two purposes to incorporating quick writes daily.
1. Students' writing stamina expands greatly.
2. Students learn how to edit and revise as a habit.
Quick write instructions: Students read prompt and then have 5 minutes to write without interruption. During this time, the teacher will also be writing with the students.
After the five minutes ended, students will have 2 minutes to go back and revise their writing with a different colored pen -NO ERASERS. This gets students in the habit of showing their revision process, and revising as a habit. These revisions should not focus on spelling or grammar, but on meaningful revisions to make the story better. After writing, the teacher should share their own writing and revision to demonstrate what meaningful revisions may look like.
Prompts are meant to inspire writing in students, and do not have to be followed exactly. They are often open ended, so that students may go in many different directions. Prompts may include quotes, poems, or optional youtube videos (in the notes of the powerpoint) to inspire students.
Included in the purchase is a powerpoint format, so that you may rearrange or change the writing prompts as you see fit."
