RAFT Writing is a great way to build creative writing skills in students as students experiment and explore different writing formats, audiences, topics, and points of view. The RAFT Writing strategy can also help students analyze a prompt they are given. It can be used as a test prep strategy as students analyze the prompt they are given before writing.

Students as young as first grade can use the included topic cards as a writing center option. You choose which cards to have available, and how many cards students will choose, and students can practice writing with varying genres. There are also complete RAFT cards included allowing students to practice prompt writing.


  • 72 cards isolated for the four RAFT areas (Role, Audience, Format, Topic)
  • 30 cards with complete RAFT prompts given
  • Notes and letter writing templates for center use
