Because we know kids are at all different stages in the writing process we’ve also included both unlined and lined journal response pages.

If you already have pre-made journals use the mini prompts and glue them directly into your existing journals.

The digital prompts can be projected on a digital device so that the prompts can be introduced and discussed before students write.

This 70-page printable set includes:

1) Tips for and a quick overview of Writer’s Workshop

2) Journal Cover Page Options (3 with Images to Color and 1 with Blank Space for Child to Draw)

3) Journal Pages (with lines and without lines)

--5 Gingerbread Theme Prompts

--5 Winter Theme Prompts

--5 Holiday Theme Prompts

--5 Space Theme Prompts

--5 General Prompts

4) Extended Page with Lines (for advanced writers)

5) Mini Prompts (to be cut and glued into notebooks)


The digital version also includes Writing Steps and Writing Checklists in three differentiated lists. These can be displayed before and after writing to remind kids of the key details to remember when drafting and reviewing their responses.

Inside the digital version there are also blank starter slides so that you can add your own prompts, use a blank prompt page for modeled writing, or create your own versions of the the writing steps and writing checklists pages.
