As always, The Teacher's Corner is looking for ways to make your life easier. We hope that our newest addition, “Daily Writing Prompts,” does just that. On as many days as possible, we have selected an event from our monthly event calendars to be the focus of the writing prompt. These writing prompts can be used in a number of ways:
One added advantage to TTC’s “Daily Writing Prompt” is that they can easily be displayed through an LCD projector in your classroom. This eliminates time you would have to spend at the copy machine. All of the prompts can easily be printed as well. Be sure to look over the different options we provide you for printing.
You will find that our prompts are written for different grade levels. We hope to continue to adding new creative writing prompts that will meet the needs of both primary and intermediate students. You may find that some of them don’t explicitly state that days event. You may want to refer back to the monthly events calendar for this information in order to share it with your students.
