If you’re using Reading Street, then 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 think in depth about the author’s choices and purpose. The second compares and contrasts the relationship between Opal and Winn-Dixie with the relationship between Lewis and Seaman.
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!
