This pack includes weekly writing prompts for September through June. I have my students glue the month’s prompt into their writing journal so they can always reference the prompts. These prompts are completed for homework once a week and I grade each writing response at the end of the week. At the end of each month, the students select one piece to revise and edit. I use the rubric attached to grade their final prompt of the month.
Additionally, each month we focus on one of the 6 traits of writing. I teach this through mini lessons and by using our in class writing projects. The students know that I look out for their use of the highlighted trait when I grade their writing each week.
