Year Long Writing Bundle and Word Work Activities



♥36 MONTHLY WORD CARDS: These cards include adorable clipart from TPT’s most popular clip artists! These cards include thematic, seasonal, or holiday words that your students can use as a spelling reference or you may choose to place the words in your Word Work station for your students to do activities with. Simply laminate, hole punch, and place them on a ring or put them in a container. Another suggestion might be to display them on a word wall if you have the space in your writing center so that students can easily view.

♥MONTHLY WRITING MENU for PERSONAL NARRATIVES: This menu is intended to be printed, laminated, or inserted into a sheet protector, and placed in the writing center for students to access if they are at a loss of writing ideas. We sure don’t want our students spending 10 minutes of their writing time “THINKING” about what to write, so this menu can ignite their thoughts.

2. Write about the best thing that has happened to you this school year.

getting proper nutrition.

19. If you could change one thing about your school, what would you change? Write a

friendly letter to your principal and share your idea.

20. Describe and illustrate how you plan to spend your Thanksgiving break.

♥AUTHORS WITH AUTHORITY: This is a great writing tool for students to keep in the front of their writing journal or in their binder! It is full of friendly writing tips that students often misuse. As the year unfolds, you can individualize the scaffolding of these pointers…fewer skills for students below grade level, and additional skills for students on or above grade level. These guidelines can be introduced based on the developmental age of your students or ability level.
