Students are asked to read a cute poem about animals doing silly things, like a penguin who chooses to wear pink slacks. Then they are asked to write about a time they chose to do something out of the ordinary.
Use this writing prompt to prep students for standardized tests and to chart their progress mastering common core writing standards.
This prompt explains the purpose and context of the writing assignment. Additionally, each prompt contains clarifications, hints and suggestions. There is also a list of expectations consistent with typical standardized common core writing assessments.
After the prompt there is room for brainstorming and the actual essay -- just like on a real standardized test!
