This product includes 12 narrative and 12 expository sample prompts formatted to match the prompts from STAAR. There is a set of all 24 prompts that are labeled narrative and expository. There is another set included that is not labeled narrative and expository.
There are so many ways you can use this product.
1. Send these cards home with parents a few weeks before the test. Ask them to pull a card each night and brainstorm some ideas. This will help kiddos think of a topic quickly on test day, and the ideas will be fresh on their minds. A note to parents about how to use the cards is included. See sample photo above.
2. Use the cards that are not labeled narrative or expository and have students sort them according to type of prompt. This can help reduce confusion on test day.
3. Put these prompts in a station. Let students journal their ideas.
The ideas are endless. Hope you love this product as much as my kiddos do, and thank you for looking!
