Reilly – Week 3 Writing prompts

Teacher: Reilly (



Hello Grade 5-8 ELL students:

Again this week, I would like us to practice our writing skills. I have picked the following writing prompts for you to try.

  • Pick one and write about it. Use the strategies we learned this year. (Freewrite, brainstorm, word flow, etc.). Let the ideas come.
  • Then, read your response aloud to yourself. Add or take away words as you hear how it sounds.
  • Then, ask someone at home to read the writing for you and offer corrections, suggestions.
  • Take a 15-20 minute break from writing.
  • When you come back to your writing, start with a new piece of paper and rewrite the piece to turn in.
  • Once you have a completed piece of writing, submit it to me on Google Classroom. I have created an assignment titled “Week 3 Writing Prompt”. I will look for all your entries there.

Do as many as interest you. PLEASE do at least one.

Happy writing! Stay safe and stay well. I love you and miss you.

Ms. Reilly
