Thumbnail1Have you ever had that moment where you ask students to begin writing and one student says, “But I’ve got nothing to write about.”

Sometimes students find it difficult to begin the task of writing when staring at a blank piece of paper. These writing prompts are a way for students to begin the writing process in a structured way. This item is suitable for Grades 2 – 5, 14 pages.

The writing prompts in this pack include a phonics focus. Each prompt provides a list of 1, 2 and 3 syllable words that have the phoneme focus of ‘ae’. The words include the spellings: a, ai, ay, a-e, and ea.

Students are required to incorporate the words provided on the prompt in their writing. This assists students with their vocabulary development.
