Use the power of Google Drive to take your students’ journal writing to the next level with engaging topics, shared feedback, and daily keyboarding practice! This yearlong bundle of weekly, common core aligned writing journals for the intermediate level will provide you with 36 weekly, editable writing prompts! There are 12 fall themed, 12 winter themed, and 12 spring themed topics that spiral through expository, narrative, and persuasive writing. In addition, you will meet 6 of the key common core language arts standards in written expression! I’ve included a list below for easy referencing. This resource will not only strengthen students’ writing skills, but will provide weekly reinforcement for typing constructed paragraphs using keyboarding skills.
Key Common Core Standards Met:
W.4.1. Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information
W.4.2. Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.
W.4.3. Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences
W.4.4. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
W.4.5. With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, and editing.
L.4.2. Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing
