Daily writing, like daily reading, has proven an effective way to help students grow as writers. Here's an easy way to implement daily writing in your classroom! Students will take their paragraph through the writing process in one week with each day having a different focus. Seriously, 20 minutes per day WILL keep the red pen away!
There are 18 different prompts in this package (great for 18 weeks!): six narrative, six argument, and six information. Each prompt has a picture to go with it. One picture is used three ways . .. for example, look at the images above, there is a picture of a honeybee and there are three different prompts based on the prompt.
In addition to the prompt, there are student instructions for each day to cover the following areas:
Day 1: Rehearsal & Pre-writing
Day 2: Using Frames & Structures for Outlining
Day 3: Write First Draft
Day 4: Revise
Day 5: Edit and Write Final Draft
This daily writing is so structured, it can be done at a literacy center, or sent home for homework.
