Back to School Writing: Create an unforgettable writing experience for your students with these fun and original colorful story starter writing prompts for back to school or the entire first month of school. These are not your typical prompts. They are designed to get students to use their imagination and enjoy a fun writing experience.
You get 30 BTS story starters in color, six themed story starter images for classroom decoration, six blank story starters, five pages of graphic organizers, and 14 Back to School themed writing pages. Add in the two pages of instructional material and writing tips for teachers, and you're ready to go. You can start using these the first day of school and use a prompt each day or use a prompt each day for a month for your daily writing center.
Some prompt topics include school supplies that are causing a ruckus in the class, book bags with jet engines, class playgrounds that are beyond belief, school transportation methods that are sure to be a hit, amazing classmates, unique summer vacations, and lots more fun, original make-your-students- giggle prompts. You won't find the prompt, "What did you do during your summer vacation?" here
This will help you meet Common Core writing standards for real or imagined narratives W.2.3, W.3.3, W.4.3, W.5.3
These materials are just right for 2nd through 5th grade students and are perfect for narrative paragraphs, event paragraphs, narrative essays, and event essays. Plus, you'll get your students excited to use their creative writing skills.
You can find a similar container and decorative pencils on the image at at any dollar store. You can also just pass out the story starters or even place them on craft sticks. If you're looking for more themed prompts, I also have lots more sets in my store.
