PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This set of 14 writing prompts is designed to get your students thinking and writing about science topics using academic language.

Research shows that students learn better when they write about what they're learning. In each prompt, students are given a context for the task, scaffolds to help them interpret the question and reach their answer, and are then asked to use academic language to explain their thinking process.

Topics covered include:
-Cells
-Comparing and contrasting plant and animal cells
-Cells as living things
-Classifying living things
-Vertebrates and Invertebrates
-Animal adaptation
-Photosynthesis
-The process of photosynthesis
-Amazing ecosystems
-Parts of an ecosystem (living v. nonliving)
-Living parts of an ecosystem
-The Muscular System
-The Digestive System
-The Immune System

Originally designed to assist my 4th grade ELL students in incorporating academic language into their writing for the WIDA Access test, these prompts are ideal for mainstream, ELL and SpED students in grades 3-5.

Any claims of correlation or alignment to the WIDA ELD Standards are solely those of Tools for Teachers by Laurah J. and have not been evaluated by WIDA.
