This pack contains 5 writing prompts. 1 is in a paragraph, and the other 4 are essays. Each prompt includes a plan (from Write Tools), and a sheet with lines for the paragraph or essay to be composed in.
Writing prompts include expository, narrative, persuasive, etc.
*This essay bundle is a weekly assignment I give my students. They are given a week to complete these as the "you do" section of our essay unit.
Please note that the week 4 paragraph can be used with any rock and water cycle article. We used one that we found in Scholastic News, however any article off the internet will suffice.
As the weeks progress, rubrics are included to show students their expectations. These may be modified to fit your needs and grade level. They can also be modified to change from essays to single paragraphs. These are very versatile and prepare students for the Standardized Test at the end of the year.
