Prompts are organized to cut down on teacher direction-giving time during the busy morning time. The electronic nature of the prompts creates a COPY-FREE product for teachers! Students simply respond to prompts daily in their morning journals (spiral notebooks).
Prompts follow this schedule:
•Make It Monday Creating lists, maps, diagrams, letters, flow charts, webs, recipes, etc.
•True Life Tuesday Informational writing
•Weigh In Wednesday Opinion writing
•Once Upon a Thursday True life sequential writing; Narrative writing
•Free Write Friday Write about anything you want!
****Prompts increase in demand and content from quarter to quarter. Please view the preview of the full version HERE to see a detailed schedule of prompts for all 40 weeks!****
