This is a set of writing prompts to support Houghton Mifflin 1st grade reading. These prompts are designed for use as writing homework once per week beginning in Theme 3. I usually have "Writing Wednesday" homework, but of course you can use them as you see fit. The directions ask for students to write at least four sentences for themes 3 and 4, then progress to five sentences through theme 7, and 6 sentences through theme 10. Each prompt has a proofreading check list on the second page. There are 11 supplemental prompts for extra practice and some themes have a 4th prompt to use during a review week. There are 38 prompts in all + a writing homework guide for parents!
