Bringing FUN into writing can sometimes be challenging. Engage your students from the beginning with these low prep, hands on writing challenges! Level Up Your Writing brings collaboration, engagement, rigor, and fun into the classroom. Here's how it works:

This resource includes 5 levels of challenges. In each challenge, students are asked to complete an activity that enhances their knowledge about writing friendly letters. The challenges increase in rigor from the first to the last. Students must complete the first challenge and have it checked by the teacher in order to gain access to the next challenge.

With each challenge, students earn badges to represent their progress. The teacher can also give teams Boosts (hints) and Zingers (demotes) to teams who are working well together or who need a reminder. A final challenge and an early finisher are also provided along with a certificate for completing all five challenges! Pages come with color and black and white printer friendly options too!


Here are the challenges:

Rookie Challenge - students are given an anchor chart and asked to read through and analyze the characteristics of a piece of writing. They then use colored pencils to identify the characteristics in a given piece of writing

Apprentice Challenge - students are given an anchor chart about the structure of the type of writing genre they are working on. They are then given a piece of writing cut up into pieces and must piece it together using their knowledge of the structure of the genre.

Ace Challenge - students are given a piece of writing that is missing chunks. Students must use their knowledge of the characteristics and structure to then fill in the missing pieces of the writing piece.

Exemplar Challenge - Students are given a piece of writing that has many errors. They must find the errors and correct them!

Master Challenge - Students are given cards with topics. They must write a piece from beginning to end incorporating the topics into the piece as best as possible.
