Product Description
This resource includes 15 (5 opinion, 5 informative, 5 narrative) multi-level writing prompts that go with an Olympic theme! Most prompts reference an attached article or Internet link. Prompts are provided in 4 formats. Revising checklists, editing checklists, and color-coding charts for each writing type are also included.

I also have a NO PREP- Olympic Reading Comprehension Worksheets and Creative Activities Unit that goes right along with this writing resource allowing you to do an entire ELA Reading/Writing Olympic Unit! Or you can purchase both in the NO PREP Olympic Reading/Writing ELA BUNDLE- Worksheets, Prompts, & Creative Activities.


WHAT'S INCLUDED
I’ve provided the prompts in several formats:
-Prompt Pages (all prompts on one page)
-Prose of the Week (students go through the entire writing process doing one step at a time)
-Prompt With Lines (students read prompt and respond on lines)
-PowerPoint (project prompt on the board and students respond in their notebooks-saves paper!).

I’ve also included revising and editing checklists for each type of writing.

Topics cover a wide-array of current event and historical topics! Topics are:
-Art in the Olympics
-Olympic History
-Kristi Yamaguchi
-Wilma Rudolph
-Summer and Winter Olympic Sports
-American Flag
-American Flag Etiquette
-Olympic Art
-Olympic Mascots
-Olympic Refugees
-Imaginary Olympics


ORGANIZATION
The document has been organized into the three Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Writing standards: opinion writing (W1), informative writing (W2), and narrative writing (W3). Five writing prompts are available for each standard, most have an article or website to reference, and at least one prompt in each standard requires some research online.

Prompts are on a variety of levels, so you may decide to have all students write to the same prompt, or you may decide to differentiate by giving different prompts to different students based on ability level. Prompts are listed from easiest to hardest.

You can use these as creative writing opportunities or to teach writing. I personally have my students color-code their writing by underlining certain required elements in different colors. The kids like doing this, and it is very effective because it is a hands-on way of having them revise their work while allowing me to see which students don’t understand how to effectively incorporate those elements. I’ve include suggested color-code charts.
