Task cards to improve writing style! This resource gives students specific ways to add style to their writing.
My 5th grade students were struggling to revise their papers to add style into their writing, so I decided to declare a "Writing Style Challenge!" This resource is the result. :)
Print, laminate, and cut this resource into funky stars. Place the writing style challenge stars on students' desks as you challenge them to a "Style Challenge!" (I say it like I'm a movie star and toss my hair. I also remind them, that like your unique clothing style, one's writing style should also be unique and creative.) Students try to use at least 3 of the 4 style options on the challenge card by the end of the writing period. My students like using dry erase markers to check off what they've accomplished and then show off their work when at the end of class.
This tool is fully editable, so feel free to modify the writing style options to best fit your students' needs. Full color options and color outlines only are provided.
Happy writing! May it be stylish. :)
***Looking for more writing resources? My students love writing about their future careers!***
