The Word List and Prompts provide valuable resources for kids to write about different subjects and themes throughout the year. Included with this product is a word list with 60 words based on the topic or theme, 20 prompts and 20 prompt starters .
This is designed for kids in grades 2-5.
The word list can be used on its own for inspiration or help in spelling when kids are writing.
The prompts are creative and inspiring, to help kids use their minds, hearts, and imagination to help them get writing right away. Pages with copies of the prompts are included, so kids can cut and paste the prompt right onto the page, so they spend more time writing and less time copying.
Included with each prompt is a page to use with small groups, with the class on a projector, or individually as needed to help inspire writing. When given a topic, kids aren’t always sure how to get started. The prompt starters give the kids a place to start so they can get going with their writing. Giving students a place to start helps teachers because students will start writing and it helps relieve pressure from students who have trouble writing. They also provide needed inspiration for all writers.
Bonus: Word Activities
These 12 activities can be used with the whole class, small groups or individuals. They are general activities to practice word use and writing. The activities can be used with the Back to School Word List or any other list of words.
