Collaborative Writing Prompts

Looking for fun, engaging, and meaningful activities to spice up your paragraph writing block with?To help improve year 3,4,5 and 6 students struggling with writing? Writing paragraphs doesn't have to be hard. This paragraph writing program is both fun and effective. It involves students working together to make the most imaginative paragraph they can y following a set of ‘rules’ for the paragraph. Over a week they will work individual and within a group setting to make these paragraphs. In addition to the printable writing prompts, there are a choice of graphic organizers, rubrics and peer and self-assessments for each visual prompt. Use the one that works best for your students.

Each Collaborative Writing Prompt activity includes…

✔ a unique prompt (designed to only be one paragraph but could easily be extended if desired). Prompts are more than just a sentence or two and were written to get students to really think about the topic.

✔ a choice of mind maps for collecting ideas.

✔ a space for students to write a final draft of their paragraph. Either in colour or Black and white

✔ a group rubric

✔ self-assessment and peer assessment

The way this works.

Everyone completes each task through the week.
