This collection of writing prompts can be used as morning work or for early finishers throughout the day. There is a date specific event or a day specific celebration for every day of January in this packet. There is a prompt based on the event or celebration. I use this every year and it's applicable any day (since all dates are included). Some of the prompts ask for a point of view, a list or even the making of a birthday card for famous people. There is also a daily math challenge on each slide, which asks the students to figure out how many years it has been since that specific event has occurred. This is an easy way to incorporate writing into your day and include history facts about sports, famous people, inventions and events. If you are looking for months other than January, please visit my store!
In the past I have also printed and laminated this material, which is sometimes more student friendly.
Thanks for looking!
