Link-Year Long Writing Prompts Bundle

Getting your students inspired to write can definitely be a challenge. I hope you find this product useful and resourceful as you encourage your students to become young authors! I will be adding a new bundle each month for you to have a year's worth of "Work on Writing"! If you are not a current follower of me on TPT, I encourage you to become one so that you can be notified of my recent products.

Included in this product are the following items:
♥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. Simply laminate, hole punch, and place them on a ring or display them on a bulletin board if you have the space at the writing center for students to easily view.

♥MONTHLY MENU: This menu is intended to be printed, laminated, or inserted into a sheet protector, and placed at 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.

♥WRITING RUBRIC: A student friendly rubric for students to use in order to evaluate their writing samples. The rubric is in a “yes/no” format. Your students can simply check the boxes as they apply.

♥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.

Some ideas for you, the teacher, that will allow you to keep your sanity while managing your writing station. An attractive and well stocked writing station is a key component that will create an inviting atmosphere for your students.
✎Make sure all materials are available and easily accessible for the students. The idea is that once the students arrive at the station, they do not leave.
✎Keep a container of sharpened pencils for students to use while at the writing station.
✎Make sure extra erasers are available.
✎Provide a container of crayons/markers for the students to use when illustrating while they are at the writing center.
✎Have a designated place for students to place their writing journals or unfinished work.
✎Have a designated folder for students to place finished work.


My hope is that you will find this product requiring very little effort to equip your writing center each month, and that your students find the prompts engaging and interesting.

You will also notice that the borders for each month will change. These borders will allow you to gauge the time of the year your students’ wrote so that you can observe their growth throughout the year. For example, you will know that writings with the pencil border was written in September, pumpkin border in October, turkey border November, etc.

If you ever need a resource created to supplement a lesson or meet a skill/standard, please do not hesitate to ask me! I love creating products for other teachers! Have a wonderful school year!
