PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Writing Activities or Writing Center Set for Upper Elementary and Middle School- This is a set of four different writing activities (and rubrics) for upper elementary students and middle school students. They are fun and will always generate different products. They provide opportunities for expository, narrative, and creative writing. There are 42 pages in this resource. I use these as writing centers and as whole class activities also. You can really be flexible with them.

There are directions for each activity, a pre-writing organizer for each activity, a rubric for each activity, colorful writing paper, supplemental items for specific activities, and more included.

*****************************************************************************

These are the four writing activities/centers included:

1. Picture Prompts - Students choose a picture, brainstorm thoughts on their organizer, and then create a piece of writing based on the picture. (Pictures not included)

2. Are You Kidding Me? - (inspired by the game Would You Rather?)- Students choose a "would you rather" situation card, decide which situation they'd rather do, use the organizer to log their ideas, then write an expository piece of text to defend their position.

3. RAFT - This center was inspired by the RAFT writing strategy. Students will use 4 different spinners (included) to select a role, audience, format, and topic to write about. They will use the organizer to brainstorm ideas, then will create their writing. (Spinners ARE included)

4. Let Me Help You with That - This center requires students to choose a prompt or story starter and complete the story using their own ideas. They can use the organizer to brainstorm their ideas before they start writing. (9 story starters ARE included)

The materials included in this download are:
1. Introduction Page
2. Directions for students, in 2 formats. for all four activities.
3. Planning Sheets or Organizers for each activity
4. Spinners for the RAFT activity
5. "Would you Rather" situation cards
