These writing prompts are perfect to use as bell ringers for independent reading or reader's workshop. Each one asks students to reflect on -- or connect to -- some aspect of their reading, such as character, theme, point of view, conflict, or setting. Some prompts ask them to make a creative connection. Then, a further slide will instruct students to make one or more revisions to improve their response. This process is not meant to end with a fully revised good copy or to take a lot of time; instead, it helps students create a habit of revision. If each time they write something they take a moment to think about improvements, -- even if the response is short and informal -- they will form that habit and become better writers. (SAVE: this product is available in my Reader's Workshop Bundle).
In this file, you will find:
1. A slideshow with over 50 writing prompts, followed by a suggested revision.
2. A slideshow without the revisions.
3. A slideshow with editable revision suggestions. Use these if you need to tweak the revisions to suit the needs of your students
*You can also print off the prompts and use them for small group discussions about texts.
