This FREE package contains 28 task cards with fun writing prompts for primary grades (1-5), a task card recording sheet and a task card response sheet.

All of the files have some color elements, but print fine in grayscale. I recommend laminating the cards or printing on cardstock so that your students can use them repeatedly.

The Writing Prompt Task Cards include four styles of prompts:
- Tell The Story (CCRA.W.3, CCRA.W.10)
- Take It From Here (CCRA.W.10)
- Use Plenty of Detail (CCRA.W.10)
- Make Your Case (CCRA.W.1, CCRA.W.10)

Tell the Story: Students write a story that fits the provided situation or quote

Take It From Here: Students write an open-ended response that begins with the provided text

Use Plenty of Detail: Students write a descriptive passage

Make Your Case: Students make a choice and support their opinion
