Product Description
This bundle of A-Z writing prompts is in color! I love using these slides with journals. They are a great way to get students comfortable with writing by using a familiar framework!

The students become so excited when they are able to tell you what letter we are going to be focusing our writing on next!

With the A-Z writing prompts, you are still able to stick with the familiar “letter of the week” theme because the weekly writing prompts become progressively more challenging as the students continue through the alphabet. Increasingly more sight words, details, and sentence starters will appear in the packets.
See Below:

Sight words included in the weekly prompts: the, a, I, see, an, like, is, my, and, to, will, go, in, on, here, it, come, be, are, this, at, has, up, we, said, have, and my. Color, number, and cvc words are also used to provide weekly reading /writing sentence practice.

Project the writing prompt on the SMART board (or other visual aid), or print individual copies for students to use during daily writing times.

On the first day, we identify the letter of the week, describe its sound, and name the pictures that begin with that sound. Then students are instructed to copy the sentence that contains words with that letter, and draw illustrations in their journals. We continue to present sentences each day for the rest of the week while students copy and illustrate. A star is placed next to the vowels as a reminder to discuss their long and short sounds. Sight words and end punctuation are also highlighted in red.

*For a higher level option, I encourage the students that are ready to pick another picture on the page and to use ear (phonetic) spelling to compose additional words or sentences. They should then illustrate their additional words /sentences in their journals.

*At the end of the week, I have my students paste a self-assessment checklist (included on the last slide) in their journals. Then they are instructed to look over their writing for the week and fill out the checklist. I then conduct writing conferences throughout the following week and highlight areas for improvement. I also provide the students with a score. This weekly assessment could be used to set in-class goals for improvement and/or a duplicate could be sent home to parents.

* Check out my black and white version of the A-Z weekly writing prompts that can be printed and made into student packets for better discussion and guidance in the classroom.
