Friends~Today I am sharing a 2 page Back to School Writing Freebie! Every August, I begin to assess writing skills with some prompts based on skills taught in first and second grade. Like~All Abouts, How tos, Opinion Writing, and Poetry. I created several prompts for each area so that I can see where they are at at the beginning of the year.
Here is one of the first prompts I give out to my students. It starts with a making list activity and then they use the list to help them write about one of their favorite back to school topics.
I always get several that love shopping for school supplies or packing their lunch!
