    They build writing fluency through repeated writing frequently throughout the month. The large variety of engaging topics will keep your students interested and excited about writing!

    These printable writing activities include 3 variations for each topic. These are great for differentiation during your writing block!

    Picture-Word List

    Students are given a picture-word list on each writing mat with related clip art to match the story starter and topic. There is a space to draw a picture with each story as well and the word list provides support in spelling.

    Writing Checklist

    There is a writing checklist at the bottom of each mat to help students remember what they need to include in their writing passage. They can review the items before writing, refer to it during, and color in the check marks after to show they have used the writing conventions. The digital version of this for Google Slides includes moveable checklist objects that kids can use to interact with the list after their writing is complete.

    BONUS Writing Conventions Posters

    This bonus poster set is for bundle owners ONLY! Posters are included for each item on the writing conventions checklist. Print half-size to make a set of cards for your writing center or use full-sized posters for your classroom wall. Student strips are also provided to use as needed. Posters are provided in color and black & white for each printing.

    The writing mats are perfect for first grade, but could also be used for advanced writers in Kindergarten and for extra practice, as review, or independent work for second grade.
