Don't use boring writing prompts this year... Use these creative and fun writing task cards!! The beginning of the year is stressful as you are trying to get to know your students as quickly as possible. Allow them to engage in writing from the get go - this will quickly give you authentic data in terms of students' writing capabilities.
These 28 Back to School Writing Task Cards can be simply displayed on your interactive whiteboard to give students ideas and prompts during daily writing time... Or print, laminate and cut the cards to use for the whole class and small groups. These task cards are perfect for Daily 5 Work on Writing rotations as well. Many of the cards could also be reused again, even after back to school time!
