I love 5 star writing! I begin using it in my Kindergarten Classroom in November. These are a few of the first writing prompts that I use.
These are writing prompts for our Community Helpers Unit.
I have provided one for dentist, construction workers, as well as What do you what to be when you grow up?
This 5 Star writing is an awesome way to get your students to think about all the different parts of writing. Each child should write and try to to earn the 5 stars.
Star 1: Using an uppercase letter at the beginning and use only lower case letters through out the rest of the sentences.
Star 2: Make sure their sentence ends in a period, question mark, or exclamation mark.
Star 3: Write 2 or more sentences on the lines.
Star 4:Draw a picture with details and using 5 or more colors
Star 5: Make sure you have a space between each word.
Hope you enjoy this!
