PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With my move from 2nd to 4th grade this year, I’ve found it imperative to include writing prompts that include expository, narrative, descriptive, and persuasive writing opportunities. This set includes 12 sets of prompts that can be used monthly. In this package 60 task cards are also included for use as a workstation. I hope you and your class enjoy them as much as my students have this year. This is how I use the prompts:

1. Write in your journals EVERY DAY! We start on the very first day of school and we continue every day after.

2. Show them what you expect:  I use one of their journal pages, write a journal entry, and illustrate it. I

3. Give them some free prompts: This will get their creative juices flowing. For those who can’t think of a topic, have a ‘think envelop’ with some pictures that may generate ideas.

4. Start at the beginning of the day. Journals are a great "morning work" starter {without all the worksheets and hassle}.  

5. Spot check up to 5 journals each morning: I have a checklist with each student’s name on it along with what I expect to see (a rubric of sorts) when I check the journal.

6. Organizational management of journals: Students cut out the journal prompt page and glue it to the NEXT full blank page in their spiral. When choosing a prompt for that day, they X out the box so as to not reuse it the next week. This continues every month.

7. Other uses- Use the task cards for a workstation during guided reading.
