Are you tired of hearing your students complain that they have nothing to write about?
Here is a set of 36 writing prompts, three pages of 12 cards each, that you can use as a literacy center or when you need something to spark the writerly mind.
Examples of prompts:
"Write a story called 'The Day of the Big Game'"
"What is the strangest thing you've seen riding in a car"
"What comes to mind when you smell fresh mown grass"
"Write a story about a baby bird afraid of being pushed out of the nest for the first time"
I have also included a set of 12 blank cards for you to write your own prompts.
Topics include creative writing, science, and math ideas.
The grade level for this activity could range from 3rd to 5th grade.
