Product Description

No planning needed! You'll have everything you need boost student informational and expository writing confidence and mastery with Set 3 of daily writing warm ups.

Six weeks of easy-to-use, standards-based practice.

Students revise and edit sample expository texts while they practice key writing skills -- great for test prep!

It makes sense that your warm ups reinforce your writing lessons! These warm ups go hand-in-hand with your expository/ informative text unit, so your students are working on the same skills!

Here's what teachers are saying about my warm ups:

  • "Love this! I was looking for new ideas to incorporate into my warm ups and this is just what I needed! Thanks so much!"
  • "This is a very helpful resource to use with struggling writers, and with students who like to get to the point with a minimum of fuss and detail. It strategically shows students how to add extra, relevant information to stretch a sentence."
  • "Awesome resource! It gets students writing everyday!"
  • "This is a great way to really work on revision strategies with my classes as our test approaches."

This is what you'll get:

six weeks of standards-based narrative warm ups!

• 30 student warm up activities

• a teacher guide with scope & sequence chart so you can target the skills your students need

week 1 (description): present effective introduction, revise sentence structure (complex sentence), identify inappropriate details, develop main idea, punctuation

week 2 (cause/effect): create a thesis, internal cohesion (transitions), use of conjunctive adverbs, develop conclusion, proofread for spelling, grammar, punctuation

week 3 (procedural): logical development of ideas, sentence variety analysis, precise word choice, external coherence (transitions), misplaced modifiers

week 4 (compare/contrast): choosing an organizational strategy, sentence variety, figurative language, indefinite pronouns, parenthesis use

week 5 (persuasive): supporting argument with facts, sentence structure, verb variety, internal coherence (transitions), using a colon

week 6 (literary response): incorporating textual evidence, internal coherence, relative pronouns, eliminating unnecessary detail, punctuation

suggested answer key - please note that student answers will vary. The answer key provides you an idea of how your students might address the task.

This is a zipped file that includes four files:
