I made these prompts to use for my writing center for the months oF January and February. Topics include New Years, MLK Jr. Day, Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day, and President's Day. All pages are set up in the format that our literacry initiative has implemented. This format is Topic sentence, First, Next, Then, Last, and I think sentence.
My morning class is at or above grade level and are independent writers. They just need a prompt and reminder of the format. My afternoon class has students who are working below grade level and need more guidance with their writing. They have one sentence less (next,) than the morning class. My students love these prompts and it has helped with all of their writing tremendously!
I hope your class loves them just as much!
If you like this format and would like me to put up the other prompts I have made, please leave feedback and let me know! I make sheets like this weekly that go with the second grade treasures themes.
