RAFT Writing Tasks: Narrative, Opinion/Persuasive, Informational Prompts
I love to give my students RAFT writing tasks, and I am sure you will, too! It gives students an authentic reason to write and makes it more fun. Many of my students who were reluctant to write actually began to enjoy it, because they were able to take on different roles for different purposes using a variety of formats. It also enriches those higher students, because they have to put themselves into the role go another and really think about the voice they will use.
This file includes 4 RAFT tasks for the month of December. Each task will take about a week from start to finish. Sold separately each task costs $2. Buy as a bundle and you get 1 for free! Includes Candy Cane Taste Tester, So You Think You Can Pull?, Diary of a Gingerbread...., and Reining in Reindeer Facts.

These writing tasks address the Common Core ELA standards of narrative writing, informative/explanatory writing, and opinion/persuasive writing. All tasks can be used in grades K-5. In Kindergarten these can be completed as a shared writing activity.
