Pick a Prompt – New Lit Station Idea

Literacy Stations, TPT, Writing
So I was trying to think of some ways to update my writing station and I came up with “Pick a Prompt.” In addition to the other writing station tasks (writing a list, comic, story, card, letter), I thought it would be fun to come up with prompts that fit the different points in the school year and that could be changed out to keep it fresh so kids don’t get bored.  This is also great practice for responding to a prompt which is a skill all kids need to know how to do with standardized testing. 
My first version is for Back to School. I tried to make the prompt questions fun and interesting and also covered a variety of topics (books, specials, recess (a student favorite)).  These prompts are a great way for you to get to know your kids and your kids to get to know each other. 
Here’s what they look like…

I’m planning on using this as a task option at the Writing Station during Literacy Stations. These also could be used whole group. You could have all students respond to the same prompt and then share out. You could also give each student a different prompt card, have them respond, and again share out. 
I also provided three different writing response pages.  Two of them have pictures (different sizes) and one does not. The one without pictures could be used for students who don’t like to draw, if you want them to focus only on the writing, and it could also be used as an additional page if they need more than one pages when responding.

Check these out in my TPT Store – Pick a Prompt – Back to School

Subjects and Predicates

Freebie, TPT, Writing
We’ve been reviewing subjects and predicates over the last few days and my kids have struggled with knowing the difference.  Some kids have understood the difference between the two, but are having a hard time identifying the whole subject and predicate.  They are just picking out a word when really a few words are making up the subject or the predicate.  So, here’s how I decided to reteach/review subjects and predicates…
First, we watched a Brainpop Video on Subjects and Predicates.  There’s just something special about Tim and Moby explaining something.  Kids just listen :-).
Then, we worked on a Subject and Predicate Sort from Jill Gribbin’s TPT Store.  Check it out here.

My students worked on this with their table group and had a blast deciding where each part of the sentence should go.
Lastly, we completed Subjects and Predicates Around the Room. This was our first Around the Room Activity of the year.  Unfortunately we were so busy with the activity that I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures, but I’ve posted a few below of the actual freebie so you can check it out.

The Subjects and Predicates Around the Room is now in my TPT store as a freebie – be sure to download it here!
Thanks for stopping by to see how we worked on subjects and predicates!
