Differentiated writing paper has been an absolute LIFESAVER in my classroom! In the primary grades, our students often have varying needs when it comes to writing, which is why I created this packet! "One size fits all" writing paper simply has not worked in my classrooms, and I created this packet to give my students the differentiation they need - all while working on the same activities! My students LOVE to write, but they are often stuck when it comes to writing topics, so I came up with writing prompts to match these writing papers, too! These prompts can be mixed and matched with any of the writing papers, and they are great for Narrative, Informational, How-To, Opinion, and especially just FUN creative writing!
No writing project is complete without a word wall, graphic organizers, or centers! I've come up with a TON of options to give your students during your writing lessons, as well as fun writing centers and graphic organizers for Narrative, Informational, How-To, and Opinion writing. All with fun themes that match the writing papers!

12 Dia de los Muertos themes that run throughout the writing pages, prompts, and activities - sugar skulls, Dia de los Muertos bread, marigolds, altars, monarch butterflies, skeletons, and more! (All clip art is made by Creative Clips, Educlips, Creating 4 the Classroom, and Teaching in the Tongass)
Full-size K-2 Differentiated Writing Paper - These pages come with 4 line styles to meet the needs of ALL of your students! (Primary Dotted Lines - large and small, and Single Lines - large and small) The dotted lines and large single-lined paper is great for Pre-K through First Grade, and the single-lined paper with small lines is PERFECT for second grade! I have included pages without lines for your early writers who need more space to draw or label, too! Each style of paper comes with clip art, as well as an option to print with a box for drawing or without. There are also versions with and without a line for your students to write a title. There are also extra lined pages for your students who love to write a lot! All of these pages are great for journals or stories! (All clip art is in black and white for students to color - or you can print on colored paper to make the pages really stand out!)
Half-Size K-2 Differentiated Writing Paper - These half-size writing pages come in the same line styles as the full-size pages (four versions for differentiation!)! These are great for "quick writes" and have pictures for your students to color, as well as the option to give them space for drawing pictures. These are awesome for making mini story books or even mini journals! (All clip art is in black and white for students to color - or you can print on colored paper to make the pages really stand out!)
Journal Prompts - 24 Writing prompts - These match the writing pages, but your students can mix and match them to write on any themed paper! These come in both color and black and white, so you can print them on colored paper to make them really stand out! You can put them in sheet protectors at your writing center for your students to look through, or cut them out and put them on a book ring!
Full- and Half-Size Cover Pages - These come in various styles for both journal covers or story covers! Simply staple any of the writing pages and you have an instant book or journal! (All clip art is in black and white for students to color - or you can print on colored paper to make the pages really stand out!)
Themed Word Wall - 16 Dia de los Muertos words to add to your word wall or writing center! These come in both color and black and white!
