These sentence stems are a perfect reference to help your students respond to their reading in a variety of ways. Students can refer to these sentence stems as they write quality reading responses. Writing stems or sentence stems are the beginnings of sentences that help students develop high-quality answers when responding to text questions.

This bulletin board set focusing on Writing Stems for Citing Text Evidence contains writing stems (also known as thinking stems) to help students put their thoughts and answers into words.

These writing stems provide a starting place for students when answering text-based questions as they learn to develop and write quality answers.

Often students are able to find the answers in the text, but they aren’t sure how to put their thoughts into words. This quick and easy bulletin board and reference cards give students a jump start by eliminating uncertainty and providing confidence.

What's included:

  • 24 black and white mini-posters (2 mini-posters are on one 8 1/2" x 11" page)
  • 24 reference cards - white with black lettering (4 to a page)


These black and white posters are perfect to print onto brightly colored paper for a quick and easy bulletin board. These posters and reference cards include direct quotations and indirect quotations, and the reference cards include an example of the writing stem in action.

A page containing tips that I've used in my own upper elementary through middle school classes is included along with an explanation of the posters labeled "Connectors."

These mini-posters and task cards can be used in a variety of ways. Because there are so many possible evidence-based writing stems, the mini-poster size makes them easier to display in most classrooms - there are 2 mini-posters on each 8½ x 11-inch sized page.
