This bundle includes this partner resource:
This resource uses American English and is editable.
The Tic-Tac-Toe format offers several advantages:
-Nine options is enough so that students feel like they have some choice about what they write about without feeling overwhelmed with a huge list of possibilities.
-Because they choose three prompts in a row, students must make choices, weighing one prompt against another. A student may very well find that in order to choose the prompt he most wants, he must also complete a prompt that he will find more challenging. However, that more challenging prompt is likely to be met with less resistance than if there was no choice and no more motivating prompt to go with it.
-Since each student is only required to complete three of the nine prompts each week, you could use the remaining prompts for extra credit.
-More variety each week (than a single daily prompt you put on the board) means more interesting sharing if you have students read entries aloud, and more interesting reading for you when you check their entries!
