Summer Anchor Chart and Writing Prompts

Even though it is summer, teachers are always thinking about great ideas for their classrooms. Some schools are in session year round and there is always a teacher looking for ways to enhance and encourage children to retain the skills they acquired during the regular school year. Parents and teachers alike look for resources to help keep their children excited about reading and writing.

Anchor Chart and Writing Prompts are a great tool to use to keep students writing--even in the summer. Summertime is such a fun time to enjoy the sun, the beach, sports, friends, and beautiful weather.

This bright and colorful anchor chart gets children's creative juices flowing and using their schema for writing about the fun they have in the summer sun. Print out the anchor chart and hang in your writing center. Or, project it onto your white board for whole group writing following a discussion on fun summer activities.

Vocabulary words next to the pictures help primary writers with spelling as well ELL, ESL, and LD learners needing this extra support.

The writing pages have a fun black line picture for students to color as well as a word box to provide support with vocabulary and spelling. A short writing prompt relating to the picture is provided on each page.

There is no picture provided on this page, allowing students to create their own picture in the space.

The last page has more lines for writers who prefer writing over drawing a picture. Of course, they could draw a picture on a separate page.

The last two pages provide differentiation for more advanced writers needing less vocabulary support and less of a writing prompt.

Happy writing!
