Writing Warm Ups are a wonderful way for students to start the writing process with the foundational skill of oral literacy. We want students to be able to tell stories before we should expect them to write stories. These warm ups are a perfect way to start your writing class. I usually have it up on the board while the students are getting settled. They learn to sit down, find their turn and talk partner, and start telling the warm up story. These are designed to be used with different writing genres, so students can start thinking of ideas and planning out writing they can then go and write during class. Because these are Google Slides, they are completely editable. I even included a blank set so you can easily add to them!
