The wonderful world of writing!

 These are writing prompts and paper that I use throughout the whole year. There are over 25 of them...all for you! :)  I put them in writing centers, sometimes use them in whole group lessons, and even use them as "fast finishers". The kiddos love them!  I ALWAYS do an example page for them. Some of the writing papers don't have specific things that they have to write about....For instance, the "Spring Fun" page.  The students can really write about anything that has to do with spring. They can write about the first signs of spring, their favorite activity or why they enjoy the spring weather. Basically it's up to you as a teacher how you direct them.

Here are some of my favorites {and the kiddos too}!













 I've also included a writing rubric for you!

Obsessed with fonts? I LOVE dafont.com for all of my cartoon/themed fonts {FREE}! :) Clipart by Scrappin' Doodles and DJ Inkers {copyright Diane J. Hook, used with permission}.

Miss Griffin said...

I also LOVE dafont! Thanks for sharing! And I have to ask - how do you put in those handwriting lines? Is it a font? I'd love to use lines like that instead of the just the one base line I draw in. We're definitely still needing those dashes to help us with our tall and short letters!

Rachelle said...

@Miss Griffin,

The handwriting lines are ABC fonts and my school purchased them for all of the teachers! I love them! They have awesome fonts like clocks, dominoes, etc. Dj Inkers also has a handwriting line font that is 1.99 for a digital download. :)

Penmanship print is a free font with lines. Use the ` key to make the blank lines.
