Fun Back-to-School Writing Prompts is a fun collection of story starters to use as you welcome new students to your class. With so much going on at the beginning of a new school year, it’s great to have instant, no-prep activities that motivate and challenge your students to sharpen their writing skills.
The themes of the Fun Back-to-School Writing Prompts include:
• trips kids took during the summer
• fun things they did
• what they’re looking forward to this new school year
• things they’re nervous about
• their creative side
• life outside of school
• their study habits
• their goals
plus lots more. No sense taking time to create your own writing prompts. These ready-to-go time savers are all done for you just when you need them the most!
Fun Back-to-School Writing Prompts presents six story-starter ideas per page plus a full-color photograph to serve as a springboard for students who can’t think of anything to write about or who have trouble getting started. The photos look awesome in full color but also reproduce great in grayscale.
Fun Back-to-School Writing Prompts also features a Word Box that accompanies the photograph and prompt. Each box has twelve words associated with the photo and/or prompts that students can incorporate into their stories. Students write on a separate sheet of paper and illustrate their finished stories.
Fun Back-to-School Writing Prompts also includes:
• Ways to Use Fun Back-to-School Writing Prompts in Your Classroom
• Guidelines for Good Writing
• a Student’s Checklist for Writing
• a Teacher’s Grading Rubric for Writing
• Writing Templates
