✏️ The prompt section is left blank & editable. You may choose to type in the student prompt, teacher prompt, a variation of them, or your own! Please note that the product images are of my third grade set, completed by one of my students. It has the student prompt typed in.

✏️ CA Edition: Each booklet for units 1-7 has a page for analyzing the prompt with different colors, a page for finding text evidence, a drafting page, and a page for the revising and editing lesson (Lesson 15). Booklets for units 8-10 are designed for research.

    Moving from middle school to 3rd grade. This resource will ensure that I am able to tackle the difficulties that I saw in writing in middle school at the earlier grade level
