Teachers: Thank you for reviewing this year long writing packet. You will find that each writing genre has a planner to use at your discretion. The prompts for each genre of writing: personal narrative, expository/informational, imaginative stories and creative writing skills and strategies are all color-coded to assist with differentiation.
This 68 page packet is aligned with the ELA CCSS for 3rd,4th and 5th grades. It can however be adapted to suit 6th grade too.
The prompt cards are perfect to use as independently selected writing prompts, small guided group work or as literacy centers activities. I have also used them as part of a whole class lesson, with props to add to the imaginative creativity.
Over 40 differentiated writing prompt cards-simply copy onto card, laminate and cut out
Graphic organisers and printable planners for each genre
16 printable vocabulary cards as a student reference tool for writing strategies and figurative language skills
Reference/learning posters to help identify the writing genres.
Creative writing game
Please keep me informed with your feedback so that I may continue to improve my work for you.
