Print on card stock, laminate, and cut apart and you're ready to use these in a variety of ways! I've used them in my own classroom successfully in a few different ways:
•daily "do now" at the start of writing workshop
•independent center activity during writing or ELA
•resource for reluctant or "stuck" writers.
•prompt for writing homework
•pre- and post-assessment prompt before and after teaching persuasive writing unit
•straight-forward and valuable activity to leave in your sub-tub!
I've designed these prompts to be appropriate for different types of use--you could use them in a "quick-write" format, or to help students generate ideas for longer-term writing projects that they will bring through the writing cycle. These open-ended prompts are appropriate for a wide range of grade levels and abilities.
