Students at the 3rd grade level are struggling to express themselves through writing. As teachers we need to embrace this and provide them opportunities to get this greatness out of them. We should inspire students to write with purpose. With this in mind, we want our writers to stay on topic and learn to organize what they are about to write. The overall goal is to have students learn to group sentences well to create well thought out and constructed paragraphs. As the grades fly by, the level of writing improves for students navigating grade school. Your students should love reaching deep into their imaginations to address a hypothetical situation. "Imagine you wake up one day looking really different from everyone else. What happened? What would you do?" Questions like this form the foundation for building writing skills. With all of these worksheets, your class should move leaps and bounds ahead to be prepared for 4th grade writing assignments.
Students will be presented with a scenario that will stimulate their creative sides. We would encourage students to outline their thoughts before they begin to write. This is a great activity to stimulate writers to organize how they write and frame their overall message. Some of these passages will get the creative juices flowing for some and not for others. We encourage teachers to give students a choice of several of these to write. Students with stronger interests in a topic will normally write deeper pieces. Celebrate the differences that make each of your students unique and develop important writing skills at the same time with these worksheets.
