They're here!! My New Writing Prompt Jars

Whew!  I just finished and uploaded my Writing Workstation Jars for the Four Types of Writing.  I decided to make one for primary grades and upper grades (since there is a chance that I may be going back to first grade in the fall).  Each collection includes 48 writing prompts (12 for each of the four types- expository, descriptive, narrative and persuasive), writing paper template, anchor charts for the four types of writing (love these!!), an editing checklist, Common Core Standards for each grade level, direction card and label for your jar.
Students take a prompt from the jar.  Each prompt is labeled by its type of writing (students write the type on their sheet).  They write to their prompt and then follow the editing checklist when finished.  The anchor charts and Common Core Standards can be posted at the station for reference.  Now that I have taught all four types of writing I think my students will enjoy this jar. Most of them have gone through all the prompts in my other jar.
You can take a look at the pictures below or click on the preview pictures to see them in my TpT or TN stores.  I've also bundled the two packets for differentiation.  Many teachers, of course, have students in the primary grades that are ready for higher level prompts; while upper grade teachers may have students who need easier prompts.
