Sometimes our writers need a little inspiration, a little nudge to get them started. These writing challenges are perfect for that. Use them to add some fun to the writing process or to review and practice skills that students have already learned.

(APRIL 2020: Options added for distance learning - now you can offer these challenges online! Look for the file called Digital Options. If you want the digital version only, click here).

This product includes five different writing activities that you can use with your students. I like to use them as group challenges, but they could certainly be used by individual students as well. Everything is available in color and black & white. I've also included instructions and an editable template. You just need to print and get ready to inspire your students!
