These free fall writing pages are a festive addition to a writing center or Writer’s Workshop. The fun story prompts and autumn colors are just the trick to make writing exciting for kids.
To prep, I simply printed out all five prompts – making 10 of each for my class of 17. (I knew that not every kid would choose to write one of every page. I splurged a little and printed them in color since the clipart is just SO cute!
The printable pack includes blank versions with no lines and options with lines but no prompt at the top. I didn’t print those just yet, but we may use them for another activity.
Fall Writing Pages
Like always, I made sure to show off these pages to my kiddos and model great writing before putting them out for use.
To start, I gathered my students on the carptet and showed off the fun and colorful writing pages. I explained that they could choose which paper (or papers) they wanted to work on throughout the week during their independent “work on writing” time.
I had my students raise their hands to vote for which prompt they wanted me to respond to and they unanimously picked, “What would your dream tree house look like?”
I modeled how to brainstorm before writing, how to start with a capital, use finger spaces, and end my sentences with punctuation.
After setting out the Fall Writing Pages, I let my students start our Literacy Workshop rotations. The pages were such a motivating addition to our centers.
