There are five writing assignments in this product concentrated on a particular set of focus correction areas. I have even included a challenge focus area too to differentiate for more proficient writers. Each assignment has a peer editing sheet as well as a rubric. ALL pages were created in Word and are editable.
These writing assignments are part of a bigger real writing BINGO board. Each section of the board is a different focus area of real life writing assignments that students may encounter in their school career. All of the assignments have a "real" audience and purpose. The full project is Common Core aligned and available on my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
Project Summary: One of the major reasons why we write is to express our thoughts, feelings, and opinions. Some people write everyday in a journal to process the day’s events. Some write as a stress reliever or to express their thoughts to someone else. In this project, you will write one of the following: a friendly letter, eight poems, a personal narrative, a letter of acknowledgement, or four journal entries.
Purpose: Your purpose in this project is to express your thoughts or opinion in a written format.
