Amazing Winter Writing Prompts

I recently teamed up with Jaime from Bright Concepts 4 Teachers to do our own little product swap. She reviewed my Morning Basket Work which you can read about here. She reviewed the Jan/Feb edition but I have recently uploaded the March/April edition.

The product I reviewed for Jaime is her Winter Writing Prompts packet. And let me tell you it has got it all. It is common core aligned and covers opinion, informative, and narrative writing.

In her packet you will find :
3 different versions of grade level appropriate writing checklists and 6 different graphic organizers.
6 writing prompts There are 2 choices for each type of writing which is one thing I and my kids LOVED.

 Student and class writing covers

3 different versions of grade level appropriate writing rubrics
 The paper to write the final draft is included along with the template for this adorable craftivity.

So why did I and my kids love this so much you ask.....well my kids loved the graphic organizers to help them get their ideas down on paper. They also loved that they had more than one choice when writing. After we had covered all three types of writing I let them pick their favorite piece and we added the hot cocoa craftivity to it. We were supposed to share today but we ran out of time and they all reminded me more than once that tomorrow morning the first thing we have to do is share. They are so excited about their writing. You know this makes for one happy teacher!!
Thank you so much Jaime for letting my class try your product!
