Let's Improve Our Writing!

My students need writing prompts and two overhead kits.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a 4th grade teacher with 35 students in my class. My school is focusing on writing this year and the expectation that each student passes the 5th grade writing proficiency test.

My students are writing every day. They are at all different levels ranging from 1st to about 5th grade. The writing prompts that we are required to use are boring, difficult to understand and even harder to write about.

I am requesting two different sets of materials that will tie in to one another. The first is a set of content area writing prompts at grade levels 1-3 and 4-6. The second is a set of writing skills overhead kits that are also grades 1-3 and 4-6. I chose the content area writing prompts because students need to master the writing process in subjects such as math, science and social studies. Each writing prompt comes complete with a word bank which will jump start their writing. The overhead kits will allow me to work with small groups to improve word choice, opening and closing sentences, transitions and sentence variety.

These kits will enable me to differentiate my instruction and prepare my students for success on the 5th grade writing proficiency test at the same time.
