These summer writing interventions are designed to help students who need help when beginning their writing.
Our summer writing interventions are packed with a range of printables to help you find a just-right activity for each of your students.
This collection contains over 49 pages.
This is another free resource for teachers and homeschool families from The Curriculum Corner.
How can I help my reluctant writers?
These summer writing interventions will provide you with new ideas for writing workshop.
We love when kids have the opportunity to be real authors during writing workshop. So many children thrive when given blank books and the freedom to write as they choose.
We have all had students who have a difficult time getting started with writing. Sometimes this even happens with our children who love to write.
We have created this set for those times when your students might need a little help.
This summer writing interventions set
You can download this complete summer writing interventions collection at the bottom of this post. We are providing this set as two downloads.
There is a large download that contains the resources we will describe below.
There is also a second, smaller download. This second download contains word cards for the first 100 Fry words. They will match the seasonal word cards within the larger collection.
In creating this set, our goal has been to give you a selection of possibilities.
Not every resource will meet the needs of every student.
Our hope is that you will find one or two choices that will fit the needs of students you are looking to help.
Within this summer writing interventions collection you will find:
Summer Word Cards These cards have pictures when possible. You can use these to help students who get stuck when they do not know how to spell a word.
We are supplying a coordinating set of the first 100 Fry words that you might include with these words. This large collection might be overwhelming. Because of this, you might choose specific words that will be helpful. As a different option, you might print and place these cards in a student’s writing folder, not cut apart.
Recording Pages There are two recording pages to go with the word cards. These pages provide a simple task for students.
Sentence Starters For students who would benefit from a sentence starter, you might use these sentence strips. If needed, provide appropriate word cards to complete a sentence you give to a child. Again, be sure to limit the number of sentences provided if multiple sentences will be overwhelming for a child.
Recording Page On this page students can write the sentence they create with the sentence strips.
Writing Prompts There are five prompts provided in two different formats. One simply has lines and the other includes a spot for students to illustrate their writing.
Sentence Squares Students read the question at the top of the page and color the picture that matches their answer. They then complete the sentence at the bottom of the page.
Picture Boxes Each box contains a picture and possible words that you can use when writing about the picture. Students write a sentence about the picture using the words in the boxes.
First, Next, Last Prompts Students describe each event using three sentences to tell what happened.
Word Boxes These are simple pages for students who might not be ready to write their own sentences. Students illustrate the word, trace the word and fill in the word box. They will then unscramble the sentence at the bottom of the page. For added practice you might have students copy the sentence onto a white board.
Summer Fun Mini Booklet Students fill in the blanks in this booklet and illustrate each sentence.

I love writing workshops. We already did one this week based on clocks. They have to submit a article, story or description of a clock. To help them I showed them a clock. Then I told them to think of words that could be used to describe a clock and make a list to refer to as they complete the task. Good luck. Make brief summary notes.
