**I update this yearly and you will receive all changes and additions for free!***
Recently updated for the 2016-17 school year! (Comes in PowerPoint format for ease of use/editing! Also has a PDF version that cannot be edited.) Each day has potential writing prompt journal ideas for student or teacher use. It is geared towards grades 1-5, but primarily primary. Each calendar page includes Common Core standards as reminders for students to include in their work.
This 138-page packet provides full color and black & white calendar pages in various font options for your grade level/preference. It is in PDF and fully editable PowerPoint formats.
Prompts are written as questions, sentence starters or statements and require students to use imaginative, expository or narrative writing styles. Prompts are geared to get students interested about writing (and drawing!) by creating a personal journal where they have the privacy and freedom to express themselves daily.
Teachers may use these with student journals, as homework assignments, for fast finishers that need something that is academic to work on, as writing prompt ideas for standardized test preparation, or in writing centers.
