September Writing Prompts
Hey, y'all! If you've been following me for awhile, you probably know that fall is my all time favorite season. I just love the changing colors, the pumpkin and apple smells, all the crafts, and back to school season. And our September writing unit embraces all things fall!
This school year, we're starting after Labor Day. Can you believe it? I don't think I've done that since I was in 2nd grade myself.
At the beginning of the year, we always talk about what Labor Day means and different community helpers, even though Labor Day is frequently left out of back to school resources. But not this time. This September writing unit includes holidays like Labor Day, Talk Like a Pirate Day, and Dot Day.
It also has students writing about apples, fall, and their five senses. I love these units because they include a little bit of everything. The last few years, my students have not had the attention span to work on a piece of writing for several days at a time--especially at the beginning of the year! These prompts get students thinking about writing a little at a time and building momentum for bigger writing pieces.
These writing prompts can be used as a writing journal, as part of an integrated science/writing lesson, or as options in a writing center. AND they can be used in any order you need to!
You can check out the full September writing unit in my TPT store here. While you're there, be sure to follow me on TPT for all the latest ideas, resources, and freebies!
I hope you found some new ideas for your classroom. Have a wonderful week and I'll talk to you soon!
