**Newly revised with fresh graphics!**
My first graders always seem eager to write about leprechauns! This pack of five writing prompts plus a pre-writing activity related to adjectives are designed to spark your students' imaginations while developing their writing skills. They are ready to print with no prep from you for use in guided writing lessons, writer's workshop, or writing centers. These pages can also be compiled to create individual student writing books that could be used as an activity for students who finish early or to differentiate instruction for your strong writers. English Language Arts Common Core Standards in the area of writing and language are included so that these prompts will easily fit into your lesson plans.
