Product Description
Included in this pack are expository writing prompts. These prompts are meant to be simple prompts for your students to use after learning a bit about this writing style.
My main point in this is to get my students to start thinking about transition words and the three-paragraph essay, as well as peer-feedback and editing.

We begin by placing the graphic organizer into the students’ writing notebook, just so they can refer back as they write. There is one notebook page included.

We also use the transition words notebook page to help students understand some of the words we want them to be using in their writing.

Each day, I give my students a new writing prompt, which they glue into their writing notebook. The students then write their response. After this is completed, I give students “rubric.” This is not a full-blown rubric, but students edit their work with a buddy at this point using this easy checklist. We also learn how to have conversations about the writing piece. We discuss both the positives of the paper, as well as discussing with buddies what needs to be improved.

There are a total of 8 writing prompts included here, so you easily have a week of writing plans if you go through the whole process with these prompts.

Happy Teaching!
