PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Get to know your students and help them become important parts of your community with these engaging brainstorming prompts and follow-up informational/expository writing assignment. Four prompts are included:

1. Fear Mapping - Students map out their fears for the future and share with each other in a round-table discussion about the benefits and consequences of fear.
2. 100 Things That I Love - Allow students to creatively put their interests on display...as you do the same thing.
3. Word Swag - Have students create their own visual representation of a favorite quote or saying. Then, have them explain their choices in paragraph form.
4. Literature Graffiti - Ask students to do some exploration into their favorite authors and books. Let them record lines and quotes that speak to them.

Also included are tips for building a writing community in your classroom with these tasks and a follow-up activity for the fifth day. The follow-up writing assignment includes a student checklist that doubles as the rubric.

Enjoy and thanks for looking!
