April Writing

As promised, I finished my April-Themed Word Banks and Writing Paper by the end of the week. It is the biggest and best yet! With many themes that can be used throughout the year - not only in April.

This 42-page pdf file contains 10 different word banks with matching writing paper and bubble story maps. Also included in the pack is a syllable sort recording sheet and prewriting template. Word banks/themes feature:

1. Easter
2. At the Zoo
3. In the Wild
4. On the Farm
5. Earth Day
6. At the Library
7. Under the Ocean
8. In the Garden
9. The Perfect Pet
10. April Showers

Your student's work will not only improve with the help of the word banks, but will be ready to display as soon as they are finished! Adorable! The entire pack is available now in my TPT store.

Of course I also have a FREEBIE from the pack for my loyal blog followers. Get your April Showers word bank, bubble map, and story paper here.

  4. Thanks for the freebie!! You know I love the April Showers! :)
    You know...I never realized how important word banks were until I started doing your super sentences. I realized the kids had no idea what to write about (when looking at the picture)...to me, ideas come popping right into my head that i could write about...But I've realized that my 2nd graders really had no background knowledge about most things to just start writing - and that was just on the sentences! yeesh! lol. Thanks for "teaching me" an important lesson :)

    1. I guess I should specify that I came down to 2nd after spending 7 years in 3rd grade, so I assume they know a lot more than they actually do..lol

  5. Thanks so much! This is wonderful!
