The writing pages in my monthly math and literacy sets have been a big hit with teachers and moms, so I decided to make you all a special set of First Grade Writing Prompts. Seasonal work is so much fun, so I’m planning to bring you a set for each season. This first set is for winter.
This first set includes 18 writing prompt organizers, 18 draft pages for those prompts, 2 blank draft pages for children who write a longer story, and an editing checklist for the students. The intent of this set is to help you take your students and children through the entire writing process from organizing their thoughts to writing and then editing their work. The draft pages can be printed multiple times to accommodate for 1st and 2nd drafts as the children edit and improve their writing.
This set is aligned with First Grade CCSS, and includes 6 Opinion writing prompts, 6 Narrative writing prompts, and 6 Informational writing prompts. The children will have fun expressing their opinions about topics applicable to them, telling stories, and explaining their favorite things. Each organizer helps the child introduce their topic, list facts, reasons, or sequential parts to a story (first, next, last), and then end with a concluding sentence. To make it even more fun, some of the prompts are fictional, but there is a good mix of non-fiction as well.
Here is a list of the writing prompts included in this set:
