I designed these task cards to help students practice the different writing skills they've been learning and practicing in the writing workshop. These would also be great to use at the beginning of the year as a pre-assessment to help you determine where to focus instruction.
They can be used for small group practice, independent practice, in literacy centers, when students finish other work, or for homework.
Includes 28 WRITING SKILLS task cards, focusing on:
- Show don't tell through actions and dialogue
- Sentence variation
- Sound effects and different sentence types (exclamations)
- How to begin sentences in different ways
- Similes and metaphors
- Internal dialogue
- Sensory language
- Precise, varied language
- Editing for punctuation
