Writer of the Week for Google Classroom offers weekly writing prompts for upper elementary school. These weekly writing prompts can easily be edited in Google in order to be used across grade levels or to be made specific to content standards. I created these weekly writing prompts with a couple things in mind:
*My students needed weekly opportunities of a consistent nature for writing practice
*I wanted my students to start preparing for the end of year testing writing format, where they're given a topic and a short amount of time to write
*I wanted to give my students short prompts of different genres (informational, opinion, narrative)
*My students really enjoy writing, but I want to keep that excitement alive by creating writing opportunities that involve technology
*By making this a competition among my students (and even the grade level), the student buy-in for this activity is phenomenal.
When you purchase this product, you'll get:
*10 months (4 weeks in each month) worth of writing prompts... That's 40 prompts to use throughout the school year!
*Directions for using this product in Google Classroom, as well as directions for necessary add-ons and apps in Google Chrome.
*An editable rubric in Google Sheets
*A Google Doc to track the weekly/monthly winners
These weekly writing prompts are editable. Once you purchase and download the product, you'll be able to follow a link to the Google Folder. Once there, you will be in "View Only" mode. From there, you can make a copy.
I've seen tremendous results in my students' writing by using these weekly writing prompts in Google Classroom. I hope you love this product!
