Back to School Weekly Writing Tickets includes 20 prompts with a 'back to school' theme. I start by selecting a page, reading the prompt, and discussing the prompt whole group. We brainstorm ideas on 'what could happen' or 'has this ever happened to you' before we start to write. Once we've gotten ideas and have written many of them on the board, we begin writing.
This pack includes each writing prompt on a printable. Just print the prompt and lined writing page front to back on your school's copier. Have fun with this activity by printing out on colored paper...just like a real ticket!
If your class writes in a journal, each prompt can also be cut from the printable and glued in to the journal.
I hope this set brings lots of discussion and better 'getting to know you' type of interaction for your first month of school.
Make sure to follow me for future writing prompts! As always, if you like the product, please take time to rate it a 4. Any questions can be left on my Q&A or at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
