Language arts literacy writing prompts grades 3 5

Language Arts LiteracyWriting Prompts (Grades 3 – 5)

  • The speculative prompt will be presented as a brief scenario. Students will use that scenario as a springboard for writing a story, drawing on stories they have read as well as their own experiences to develop ideas for their stories.

  • There are two formats for assessing explanatory/expository writing: one will introduce a topic in a brief verbal prompt and ask students to develop a composition about that topic; the second format begins with a poem that introduces a topic. That topic is elaborated further by a brief verbal prompt that students will use as a basis for writing their composition.

  • For each writing task, students will have 30 minutes to plan and develop their story or composition.


Language arts literacy writing prompts grade 6 7

Language Arts LiteracyWriting Prompts (Grade 6 & 7)

  • The speculative prompt presents a brief scenario which students will use as a springboard for writing a story, drawing on stories they have read as well as on their own experiences.

  • Explanatory prompts present students with a topic based on a quotation or adage, or based on a familiar subject. Each is a springboard for the student to write an essay. Explanatory writing is used to share knowledge and to convey ideas and experience. Explanatory writing may be based on the writer’s personal knowledge and experience or on information presented to the writer.

  • Persuasive writing tasks elicit the student’s point of view on a given controversy or topic arising from interpersonal, school/community, or social contexts.
