This purchase is perfect for a teacher who needs quick and engaging creative writing prompts that is accessible for ALL writers! These creative writing prompts are accessible to writers of most levels (particularly effective in grades 3-6).
This purchase includes 40 creative writing prompts in task card format. The included prompts ask students to imagine, describe, infer, pretend, problem solve, invent, empathize, and more!
♥LA Station♥ Can use these creative writing prompts as journal opportunities. As they are in task card format, they are easy to moderate! Either post a number for the day, indicating the prompt to which you want students to respond. If you are letting students self-regulate they can respond to the prompts in order (as they also increase in difficulty). If students are self-regulating, they can write the prompt number at the top of the page in their journal.
♥Morning Work♥ As students come in for the morning, have them begin their journaling. Students can share their favorite ideas during morning meeting or a greeting opportunity.
♥Small Group Writing & Conversation♥ I keep these laminated and on a ring behind my kidney table. If my small reading group finishes early, we use these as conversation starters and then begin responding through writing.
Note: These task cards increase in difficulty. The beginning prompts have sample questions to give students a BRAIN BOOST, while later questions are more open ended. See samples below.
