Do you want to challenge your students in critical thinking while developing their writing skills with rigorous writing prompts?
Journeys 3rd Grade - Unit 1 Bundle - Rigorous Writing Prompts for Homework
Lesson 1 - “A Fine, Fine School”
Lesson 2 - “The Trial of Cardigan Jones”
Lesson 3 - “Destiny’s Gift”
Lesson 4 - “Pop’s Bridge”
Lesson 5 - “Roberto Clemente: Pride of the Pittsburgh Pirates”
These writing prompts are designed to complement the reading series while allowing students to select their own writing prompt out of four to five choices. This gives students ownership in selecting the prompt they want to elaborate their own ideas. This works great with students!
In the first couple of units I usually include a companion reading assignment at the top of the page to practice fluency, speed, etc. at home with parents.
This could also be used in the classroom instead of as homework.
You will be able to view the full preview of this lesson as an example of the paid content.
Let me know if you have any questions or issues.
Hope you enjoy!
