Use them for:

✤ Bell Ringers (Do Now Activities)

✤ Extra Credit Writing Assignments

The task cards are aligned with the common core state standards for grades 5-12

This file contains a PDF copy of my 250 writing prompts/journal topics in task card format.

I would print them out on stock card paper (colored or white) and laminate them so you can use them year after year.

There are more than enough writing prompts for the entire year. In fact there are so many prompts included here that you can pick and choose the prompts you want and still have enough for a daily writing assignment.

Here are a few examples:

How do you feel on the first day of school?

I wish I had a million... Then I would...

What does "The early bird gets the worm" mean to you?

What would you do if you saw a friend cheating--report it, confront the friend, nothing--and why?
