How do these writing prompts meet 75% Common Core Writing Standards for grades 3-7?

Easy, the standards are all the same. The standards want these grades to write persuasion, expository, fiction, non-fiction, and practice routinely. For example, third grade calls it “opinion” writing, and by seventh grade it is called “persuasion” with a thesis and examples. Increased expectations and teacher support creates the difference between grades.

This plethora of prompts facilitate differentiated success. It’s just a matter of matching the prompt to the students’ needs. Take it with you when changing grade levels, too.

Less time prompt pondering, more time lounge scrounging for snacks!

Do you know about TpT credits?

TpT credits are points which can be applied to future purchases to save you money.

To earn credits: After you make a purchase, rate and comment fairly on the product page of your purchased item. You need to do both to earn your credits. But you don't have to rate and comment right away. You can do so after you've had a chance to use the product. Just return to the product page when you're logged in to TpT.

For every dollar you spend on TpT, you'll earn 1 credit—and they'll round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 20 credits you earn equals $1 to apply toward future TpT purchases.

To redeem credits: Once you've earned at least 20 credits, you'll see the option to apply credits at checkout.
