Here are 22 winter/holiday-themed writing prompt task cards that cover the three purposes covered by the CCSS in grades 3-6 (opinion, informational, and narrative.These task cards specifically meet the criteria for W.1, W.2, and W.3.
Throughout the task cards, the writer’s purposes are organized randomly to ensure students strengthen their ability to switch to writing for different purposes.
A writing response sheet is included in this set. These writing prompt task cards are ideal for writing centers, whole class writing topics, or down time during the day.
Within our classroom I have these cards laminated in a plastic envelope at our writing station along with any other task cards the students can use. Instead of using plastic envelopes you may also choose to hole punch all the cards and attach a ring.
