This "SUMMER EDITION" 30-Day Writing Challenge for 1st and 2nd grade contains a variety of engaging writing material for your students. There are 30 different writing activities (2 sheets per activity, created to be copied back-to-back and bound into a book, if you choose). For a total of 60 writing pages, you will see the following activities:
- 2 opinion essays
- 1 explanatory essay
- 1 informative essay
- 2 descriptive writing activities
- 2 narrative writing activities
- 1 "how-to" essay
- 5 journal prompts
- 5 story starters
- 2 recipes activities
- 3 newspaper articles
- 1 packing list activity
- 2 book reports
- 1 biography
- 1 restaurant review
- 1 autobiography
These writing activities are purposeful, but fun. Students will find that completing all of them is challenging, but rewarding.
Some teachers choose to stretch the challenge to 60 days so that students have 2 days to complete each activity. I also reward my students with a pizza lunch party if they complete the writing challenge (for the summer challenge, I plan the pizza party during the first or second week back to school).
