There are 24 writing prompt cards in this pack that I set out in my writing center for my kids to pick from. Of the 24 prompts there are 6- Narrative, 6-Opinion, 6-Informative/Explanatory, and 6- Creative prompts. (If you're thinking-- Hey, woah, hold the phone!? Creative isn't part of that Common Core!! -- you're right. But it's still an area in which my students perform some of their best writing and let their imaginations run free while still focusing on mechanics, organization, and voice, so I keep it in the mix!) The kids are allowed to pick any card they want while they are at the Writing Station BUT, they know they need to pick a different type of writing card each time. So if they worked on an Opinion card last time, this time they need to work on a Narrative, Informative, or Creative.I keep laminated colored cards at the Writing Station but there are also black and white versions of every cards that can be cut out and pasted into notebooks.
I also keep a variety of writing papers and organizers at the center.
Teaching 1st and 2nd, I always make sure I have primary and intermediate type lined papers.
This month's pack includes prompts that center around some of March's central themes like Read Across America, St. Patrick's Day, and the beginning of Spring! The pack aligns with CCS Standards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade and I've included a copy of them in the pack for each grade.
And here is a freebie prompt just for you that you can grab in the Product Preview section of this file in my TPT Shop!! :)
