New Product: Writing Fluency Timings

Do you have students who struggle to write or generate ideas when given a topic?  Students who are slow writers or dislike writing?   Looking for a warm up activity to last you the entire school year? Then this is the perfect product for you!

This writing fluency activity allows students to work on writing in a fun and competitive way.  I like to use it as a warm up activity at the beginning of my literacy groups.  Once your students get the hang of the routine, this activity takes 5-10 minutes and is a great, structured way to keep kids busy with independent work while you set up/gather your materials for that day's lesson.

Benefits for your students
Students who practice fluent writing activities will increase their ability to:
1) Think of items more quickly that are related to a topic
2) Write lists of items quickly

When students can come up with multiple items related to a topic quickly, it can also increase their:
1) Vocabulary
2) Conversation skills
3) Writing skills
