If you’re using Reading Street, or just reading 'Because of Winn Dixie' with your class, these writing strips are for you!
We use them as glue in prompts for our spiral notebooks. Just copy,” paper cutter” the left and right sides off, then into strips ready to hand out.
There are 2 spiral writes. The first one requires students to make connections and do in depth thinking about animal and human relationships. The second addressed the genre of the story and asks students to demonstrate/prove how they know.
Each spiral write features guiding questions and bullet points to help students generate high quality writing.
I find these are most useful on “Day 4” of the Reading Street schedule. They’re great to have students reread/review portions of the story, and expand on their reading.
I hope you enjoy these and check back for more spiral writes for the other Reading Street weeks!
