How can the word lists be used?

  1. Narrative Writing: When children are given choice in their writing, especially in personal narratives, they often write about things they are familiar with. Many children have experience in a sport, activity, or hobby.
  2. Opinion Writing: These topics can be used for opinion prompts relating to your favorite sport, best sport, most dangerous sport, favorite season, best season for ___, etc.
  3. Informative Writing: When writing How-To’s or for a fact-based prompt related to these topics, students will have words to help them.
  4. Poetry Writing: Topics for poetry writing are often based around seasons and nature. These word lists will help students with that type of writing.
