Use these 30 sheets to motivate your early learners to write. Suitable for K- 3 or use for struggling writers.
Each sheet features a focus question/s for students to think about and discuss. This not only motivates reluctant writers but also eliminates the old excuse "I don't know what to write about".
The questions/focus are varied to cater different levels and interests. You decide how much detail goes into each answer/story and what you want to focus on.
Some questions require more imagination than others and some questions are factually based and require students to draw on their own prior knowledge.
