You may use these writing prompts as conversation topics for speeches, creative writing story topics or journal prompts. These writing prompts are short ‘n sweet and made up of a mix of “would you rather” type prompts, poem ideas, quick questions, lists and short story topics.
There are 108 writing prompts available to print in black and white and color. Print the pages for your students to paste in a journal or laminate them to use in a writing or speech activity.
I specifically use these prompts with my class’s Wonderbook. If you’re interested in trying something similar, read for a brief explanation below! Or check out my blog for the full article on how to use a wonderbook:

If you buy this product you will receive the full set of instructions for how to get the most out of your wonderbook, and step by step of how to do a free write with your students using these writing prompts.
A wonderbook is a delightful tool to aid in creative writing. It is a small lined book similar to that of a journal. Use it for free writes to get kids writing, or keep it as an ideas book where your class store ideas for their next writing piece.
Free writes are a method of encouraging the creativity needed in writing, and eliminate the feelings of anxiety and inadequacy associated with creative writing. Students who struggle with spelling and grammar or writing detailed sentences, will love free writes as the emphasis is on expression, rather than perfection.
