My Pick-a-Prompt writing products are a fun change of pace for my students. They love the fact that they have a CHOICE of topic. They get to decide whether they want to share their thoughts, opinions, make lists, write letters, songs, poems, etc., and even if they want a prompt that allows them to be a bit silly at times!
✿There are eight pages of prompts with three prompts on each page. Kids highlight their chosen prompt or simply put an X on it and respond to that prompt.
✿I run these prompts two-sided with the back being the fully lined page that’s included in this packet. I always have extra lined-only pages run off for my voracious writers! I get quite a few two-three page responses!
✿All prompts are available with primary and secondary handwriting lines which make these appropriate for Grades 1-4.
✿If you walk into my room, I usually have several of these hanging up around the room. I also use them for homework once a week and the kids partner share responses during morning meeting the next day. Sharing responses allows the children to get to know their classmates a bit better and helps foster a stronger classroom community.
✿As always, I model, model, and model again several of these before giving them out. It make such a huge difference in the quality they produce! The kids know that I won’t accept one word or sentence answers! The more I model and have kids share responses, the better the results are from the whole class.
