Elementary Write!

Every year we host an (Almost!) Elementary Wide Write. As a staff we have decided to focus our students on building their reading skills for K-3 and writing skills for 4-7. In order to best help writers grow their skills and talents, we have to know where we are starting from!

Please return to your teacher by: OCTOBER 23

What is it? The (Almost!) Elementary Wide Write has writing prompts for grades 2-7. Our young writers will take time to brainstorm before writing. After they've done their writing, let your learner know they have some time to go back and edit their work, checking for common punctuation, spelling, and grammar.

What are we looking for? In creating this year's (Almost!) Elementary Wide Write, we've also added information for our parents on the writing process. We are specifically looking for the pre-writing, drafting, and revising skills that our young writers have developed.

What do we do with the information? Your teacher will use the (Almost!) Elementary Wide Write to help their learner develop specific writing skills. If a student is struggling with grammar, but not spelling, then the teacher can give extra support to their family.

If you have any questions, please contact your teacher!
