In this download you will receive four pages of journal prompts. Each page consists of nine prompts. In my classroom students are responsible for choosing and completing 1 prompt per week. By the end of nine weeks, students will have completed all 9 prompts.

I created these four pages of journal prompts for my students to use each of our four nine weeks. Once a week, students will be responsible for choosing one prompt and writing a response in their writing journals. Using this format allows each students to choose what prompt they would like to write about each week and students LOVE choosing. At the end of each nine weeks, students will have answered all 9 prompts in the order they have chosen.

My students glue their prompt pages into a journal and then write their responses on the next nine pages. I included the page we use, along with a full page version for those of you that prefer to put them in binders/notebooks.Journal prompt details:

These 36 prompts will give your students a large variety of things/events to write about. Prompts vary from personal questions (favorite foods, favorite present, etc.) to made up story starters (pretend a snowman comes to life, pretend you have super powers, etc.)

5 sample prompts:
1) If you could be any animal for one day, what would you be and why?
2) What was the best gift you have ever received? Why was it your favorite? Who gave it to you? How did you feel when you opened it?
3) If you could be a book character, who would you be? Why do you want to be that character? What makes that character so special?
4) Make a list of 30 things you do NOT want to do on summer vacation.
5) If you could have a super power, which one would you choose? Explain what you would do with those powers.
