Product Description
You may wonder where’s the usual cutesy, cover clip art that’s always featured on my packets.

It’s missing, because I specifically designed these writing prompts for older students.

Writing is one of my hot buttons; and I’ve been blessed to teach these skills to kindergartners, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th, and 12th graders, as well as college students!

I truly believe that if you provide students with interesting and intriguing prompts, they’ll get excited and want to get right down to the business of writing.

To jump start their thoughts, I’ve included 2 Venn diagrams, which are a quick, easy and fun way to introduce comparison and contrast.

There’s also a set of four, thought-provoking, poster-like worksheets, as well as a list of 60 other writing prompts to choose from.

Because I find quotations very motivational, I often use them to provoke discussion, which leads to writing what the quote means and if you agree or disagree with it and why.

With this in mind, I’ve included a list of my 35 all-time favorite quotations by Dr. King.

Print a copy and pass it around. Students choose one or two to write about.

Throughout the month of January, write one of MLK's inspirational quotes on the board.

During your writing block, have students record the quote in their writing journals and comment on it.

For an interesting bulletin board, have children design a poster around one of their favorites.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you and yours a very Happy Martin Luther King Day. Write on!
