How can I use them in the classroom?

Narrative, opinion, and informational writing are the central focus of the ELA common core writing standards. As such, students need daily practice writing within these text types. These Writing Prompt pages can be used as morning work, during your guided or independent writing block, or at a writing center. Each writing prompt page can be printed front-to-back with an extra writing lines sheet to give young authors plenty of writing space.
