Writing Sprints

* Give students 3 minutes to write about different topics.  They must write as fast as they can.  Some of the topics that you could use are:

- I am 13 years old.........

- If I could have a do over.........

- I want to write about.......

 

- My body remembers............

- I am celebrating because.......

 

This strategy is a great technique so that students practice writing. Remember if students are stuck then they will need to copy the prompt.  

 

 

After students write several prompts, have them select one prompt that they would like to write more about.  This allows students to have student choice.

K/1- Stamina

K/1- Stamina

With kindergarten teach students what the word stamina means.  "I needed to have stamina when I ran for 4 hours. Imagine running from the time you get here until lunch time.  That took stamina.  Today we will work on writing for 2 minutes.  Tomorrow we will write for 5 minutes until we keep building our stamina up."
