St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday! What better way to engage your students during the doldrums of March and the season of standardized testing than with fun and creative writing prompts!
When you purchase this bundle you will receive SEVENTEEN writing prompts!! What a bargain! All prompts meet Common Core State Standard W.3-narrative writing!! And, there is NO PREP! Just PRINT and enjoy.
Each writing prompt comes with two different versions. The first version of each writing prompt offers a fun prompt for students to complete. Sixteen of the prompts are creative stories and the last prompt is about writing a letter. The prompts can be a quick activity, a fun writing station, work for after standardized tests, or any other way that you see fit.
The second version of each prompt is more detailed. The second version asks students to take the stories further by creating character development, setting, conflict, plot, and a resolution. Then, students are also asked to include imagery, figurative language and word choice. These can be used for longer writing assignments, during writing workshop, or any other way that you see fit to use them in your classroom.
Each writing prompt comes with matching writing papers. These motivate students and also provide an excellent bulletin board display!
A bonus “cheat sheet” with definitions and examples of literary elements and writing techniques is also included that can accompany the second version of the prompts for a more in-depth writing task.
A pre-writing organizer is also included that can be used with any of the stories if you want students to dig deep and really plan out a writing piece.
A rubric is also included so students know the expectations and for easy grading.
With so many choices, you can pick your favorites or offer students different options for easy differentiation. Each writing prompt features fun graphics that help give students ideas for their stories.
