Maybe you just want a blank writing template, with or without a small spot to add an illustration. Sometimes these are more conducive to narrative writing. These still have the easy scoring system along the top, 1-10 points for an easy percentile grade. These can be used for narratives, short reports, procedure writing, or just about anything you can think of! They're also useful for essays where you don't want a full 5 paragraphs. I've actually seen some 4-paragraph essays gaining popularity, as students seem to be able to develop 2 ideas more fully than 3 in their writing sometimes...
Anyway, check out more of my writing lesson plan templates! Remember, you can always get this in a full color print version on amazon, too!
