This resource was created to be a jumping off point for students to write more freely! Included are 6 weeks of prompts across 5 genres of writing:
Four prompts each week are seasonal and will not appear again in the year-long series; 3 are part of a group of 18 prompts that rotate through the journal prompts each month. There are a total of 7 prompts for each week, allowing students choice (as well as extra options for early finishers!).
This resource includes 4 reference guides to prompt students to include the important components of narrative, informational, opinion, and creative writing without asking a teacher for help! These can be glued to the inside front and back covers of a composition notebook for year-long reference. A code on each prompt tells students which guide to reference.
Great for morning work, Daily Five, challenge writing, or as part of Writer's Workshop! This would also work as a resource to guide students doing partner writing.
