Use a focus on warm weather to channel student writing! Great for practicing paragraph organization and structure during testing breaks and other times. The 17-page packet includes notes to the teacher, task card cover, directions for students, 56 writing task cards each with a separate prompt, a paragraph graphic organizer, and a sample rubric that students (and teacher) may use for evaluating the finished product. Use the cards as a bell ringer activity, in a writing center, for Fast Finishers, for Extra Credit, as homework, or as practice in constructing 5-sentence paragraphs. Simply cut out the cards, laminate, and fasten together with a metal ring for an easy, but portable writing center feature. Grades 4-8.
