Writing Workshop Writing Prompts Engaging, Entertaining, Enlightening
By Nancy Remkus “Earth Song Education”
This unit includes 30+ writing prompts to encourage both creative writing and writing for a purpose in your classroom. Each page can be copied in color or black and white to create instant writing lessons for your class. Many of the ideas encourage students to ‘go deeper’ into their own personal thoughts and feelings. These writing opportunities will also help the teacher to learn more about their students. Topics address many aspects of the ELA Common Core Standards at each level.
The four different types of writing are explored: narrative, descriptive, persuasive and expository. Students are encouraged to consider topics that they would like to write about. Completed pages can be made into or added to an interactive writing journal.
Ideas for writing poetry, haiku, raps, how-to, fantasy, descriptive writing, memories, opinion pieces, plays, tall tales, fish stories, heart maps, persuasive pieces and much more.
Colorful, fun, thought provoking!
