Writing across the curriculum is goal of teachers in the primary classroom. These prompts, using classic titles with a mathematics theme or focus, are perfect for use during journal, shared writing, modeled writing, or independent center time.
Many of these titles are on our classroom bookshelf already! Children love listening to a great story and these titles fit that need! A story response using the Role (of the writer) an Audience (who are you writing to) a Form (an email? a letter? a poem?) a Topic (what the writing is about), and use of a Strong verb (explanatory/informative, narrative, or persuasive/opinion) is the way to meet the needs in the Core Standards of Writing. Ready? Set? Write!!
