While we love logic and vocabulary, we understand that writing is paramount: chief in importance or impact; supreme; preeminent. (See, we told you we love vocabulary!) Learning to express one's thoughts in a clear manner, having command of language, and using exposition to express an idea or opinion is a crucial tool for students to learn. Everyone should have the right to be able to speak their mind, but they also should have the know-how to do it in an effective manner. While our reading comprehension exercises may help show students what good writing should look like, there's no substitute for actually practicing it themselves. Technology has not yet invented a way that a student's writing can be checked; this can only be done by a teacher. So, these worksheets are intended to be completed and then reviewed by a competent educator.

Below you'll find our writing practice worksheets for students to use to practice writing. Each worksheet is colorful, has examples, and space for students to write their responses. On these worksheets, students learn to improve their writing by finishing the story, responding to questions, writing in practical situations, arguing a position, and writing ly and creatively.The writing process first evolved from economic necessity in the ancient near east. Writing most likely began as a consequence of political expansion in ancient cultures, which needed reliable means for transmitting information, maintaining financial accounts, keeping historical records, and similar activities. Around the 4th millennium BC, the complexity of trade and administration outgrew the power of memory, and writing became a more dependable method of recording and presenting transactions in a permanent form. The Dispilio Tablet, which was carbon dated to the 6th millennium BC, may be evidence that writing was used even earlier than that.
