This product includes writing blackout boards for the months of September- June for grades first and second.
Students can tape or glue these in their writing journals each month or they can keep them in a writing folder. The students choose which prompt they want to work on each day. There are the following options on each board: draw and label, summary, narrative writing, and lists included in these prompts. After they work on the prompt they color it in. The goal is to “blackout” their writing board. That means they have fulfilled all of the writing requirements for the month.
There are 15 prompts per month expect for the month of June. In June there are only eight prompts.
You may have students work from five minutes to what ever time you feel necessary. The activity promotes writing stamina and gets students excited about writing.
These are great for early finishers, morning work, writing centers, daily five, and more.
