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!
The writing prompt is all about who or what can be found Somewhere Over the Rainbow. This writing prompt asks students to write a story about what can be found “somewhere over the rainbow.” Is it mythical creatures? Another dimension? Leprechauns? The possibilities are endless! Your students will love the adorable images that will inspire great creativity!
When you purchase this product you will receive two different versions of the writing prompt!! The first version of the writing prompt offers a fun prompt for students to complete. The prompt can be a quick activity, a fun writing station, work for after standardized tests, a holiday activity, or any other way that you see fit. And, there is NO PREP! Just PRINT and enjoy.
The second version the writing prompt is more detailed. The second version asks students to take the story 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.
The 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 prompt for a more in-depth writing task.
A pre-writing organizer is also included that can be used 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.
Both versions of the writing prompt features fun graphics that help give students ideas for their stories.
