Groundhog Day! Groundhog Writing for February: Create an unforgettable writing experience for your students with these fun and original colorful story starter writing prompts for the winter months. These are not your typical prompts. They are designed to get students to use their imagination and enjoy a fun writing experience.
You get 24 Groundhog Day themed story starters in color, six themed images for classroom decoration, six blank story starters, three pages of graphic organizers, and 7 groundhog themed writing pages. Add in the two pages of instructional material and writing tips for teachers, and you're ready to go. You can start using these the first day of February and use a prompt each day, during the week of February 2nd, or just on Groundhog Day.
Some prompt topics include Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil, The Super Bowl, other animals, spring, and, of course, ground hogs.
This will help you meet Common Core writing standards for real or imagined narratives W.2.3, W.3.3, W.4.3, W.5.3
These materials are just right for 2nd through 5th grade students and are perfect for narrative paragraphs, event paragraphs, narrative essays, and event essays. Plus, you'll get your students excited to use their creative writing skills.
You can find a similar container and decorative pencils on the image at at any dollar store. You can also just pass out the story starters or even place them on craft sticks. If you're looking for more themed prompts, I also have lots more sets in my store.
Tip: If you have a class party, you can also use the images without the prompts for cupcake toppers.
