These are perfect writing assignments for distance learning. Quick writes help students to develop their writing fluency, while focusing on a given topic. Quick writes generally take about 10-15 minutes, and students are expected to write continuously during the given time. Quick writes can be used as a pre-writing activity, or for daily writing practice.

These are also available in a digital format for Google Classroom.
