Do your students ever stare at a blank piece of paper unsure how to start writing? Do you struggle to find fun ways to engage them in phonics practice and writing? Phonics writing prompts provide structure, focus, and a little fun.
Like any writing prompts, phonics writing prompts are designed to give students a jumping off point. The difference with phonics writing prompts is that students also have certain words to include. This encourages students to expand their writing vocabulary and use words with sounds that you are practicing.
They are perfect to use for weekly homework or in a writing center and will even encourage your most reluctant writers to begin.
Each writing prompt provides a list of eight single syllable and multi-syllable words that have the phoneme focus of /e/. The words include the spellings: a, e, ea, ai, and ie.
Students are required to incorporate the words provided on the prompt in their writing. Many students tend to use the same words when writing (what they are comfortable with). By using the supplied words students are extending their vocabulary to include words that they would not normally use.
The phonics writing prompts incorporate various text forms to allow students to practice writing in different ways. This pack includes ten different writing worksheets including:
