Link-Year Long Writing Prompts Bundle
Getting your students inspired to write can definitely be a challenge. I hope you find this product useful and resourceful as you encourage your students to become young authors! I will be adding a new bundle each month for you to have a year's worth of "Work on Writing"! If you are not a current follower of me on TPT, I encourage you to become one so that you can be notified of my recent products.
Included in this product are the following items:

*30 Monthly Word Cards: These cards include adorable clipart from TPT’s most popular clip artists! These cards include thematic, or seasonal, words that your students can use as a spelling reference. Simply laminate, hole punch, and place them on a ring or display them on a bulletin board if you have the space at the writing center for students to easily view.

*Monthly Menu: This menu is intended to be printed, laminated, or inserted into a sheet protector, and placed at the writing center for students to access if they are at a loss of writing ideas. We sure don’t want our students spending 10 minutes of their writing time “THINKING” about what to write, so this menu can ignite their thoughts.

*20 Writing Prompts: A detailed explanation of the prompts is found on page 9.
The prompts include the following:
Describe your first day of school.
Tell about a time you rode on a school bus.
Tell about a vacation you have been on before.
Describe how you spent Labor Day.
Tell about a new friend you have met this year.
Describe how you would manage a lemonade stand.
Describe some things you can do if you are an early finisher.
Describe what you would do if you could be the teacher for the day.
Tell about your favorite subject in school.
Write about your favorite school lunch.
Describe your mom’s job.
Describe your dad’s job.
Describe your favorite app on your tablet or smartphone.
Describe what you wore, or what you plan to wear, on picture day, and explain how you feel on this day.
Tell about the best birthday party you’ve ever had.
Write about your favorite football team.
Describe how you feel when you wake up on a school morning.
Tell about what you eat for breakfast on a school morning.
Explain how you should correctly handle a bully.
Tell about some things you would like to know about your teacher.

*Writing Rubric: A student friendly rubric for students to use in order to evaluate their writing samples. The rubric is in a “yes/no” format. Your students can simply check the boxes as they apply.

*Authors with Authority: This is a great writing tool for students to keep in the front of their writing journal or in their binder! It is full of friendly writing tips that students often misuse. As the year unfolds, you can individualize the scaffolding of these pointers…fewer skills for students below grade level, and additional skills for students on or above grade level. These guidelines can be introduced based on the developmental age of your students or ability level.
Some ideas for you, the teacher, that will allow you to keep your sanity while managing your writing station. An attractive and well stocked writing station is a key component that will create an inviting atmosphere for your students.

1. Make sure all materials are available and easily accessible for the
students. The idea is that once the students arrive at the station,
they do not leave.
2. Keep a container of sharpened pencils for students to use while at
the writing station.
3. Make sure extra erasers are available.
4. Provide a container of crayons/markers for the students to use
when illustrating while they are at the writing center.
5. Have a designated place for students to place their writing journals
or unfinished work.
6. Have a designated folder for students to place finished
My hope is that you will find this product requiring very little effort to equip your writing center each month, and that your students find the prompts engaging and interesting.
You will also notice that the borders for each month will change. These borders will allow you to gauge the time of the year your students’ wrote so that you can observe their growth throughout the year. For example, you will know that writings with pencils was written in September, pumpkins or Halloween borders/October, Thanksgiving themed borders/November, etc.
If you ever need a resource created to supplement a lesson or meet a skill/standard, please do not hesitate to ask me! I love creating products for other teachers! Have a wonderful school year!
