Use these prompts in your center or station rotation, at return from mid-year break, or any time you review school and classroom rules. Teach your students to elaborate by adding a variety of specific details in their writing as they brainstorm about fun topics relevant to middle school.
Instructions include these types of details:
• Sensory language (imagery)
• Facts & figures
• Figurative language
Each task card provides a topic sentence about a school rule or policy. Students must write in three concrete details that could be used in a paragraph with that topic sentence.
This resource includes a slideshow presentation to introduce the types of supporting details, including an example sentence for each type. You'll also get posters for display in a writing center, task cards, and an answer sheet.
Teach 150+ students? I've added a lower-ink version for a whole class assignment that doesn't require the task cards--just print a class set and have students write in their own notebooks or on looseleaf paper!
