Product Description
This purchase is perfect for a teacher who needs quick and engaging creative writing prompts that is accessible for ALL writers! These creative writing prompts are accessible to writers of most levels (particularly effective in grades 3-6).

This purchase includes 40 creative writing prompts in task card format. The included prompts ask students to imagine, describe, infer, pretend, problem solve, invent, empathize, and more!

SUGGESTED USES:
LA Station♥ Can use these creative writing prompts as journal opportunities. As they are in task card format, they are easy to moderate! Either post a number for the day, indicating the prompt to which you want students to respond. If you are letting students self-regulate they can respond to the prompts in order (as they also increase in difficulty). If students are self-regulating, they can write the prompt number at the top of the page in their journal.
Morning Work♥ As students come in for the morning, have them begin their journaling. Students can share their favorite ideas during morning meeting or a greeting opportunity.
Small Group Writing & Conversation♥ I keep these laminated and on a ring behind my kidney table. If my small reading group finishes early, we use these as conversation starters and then begin responding through writing.


Note: These task cards increase in difficulty. The beginning prompts have sample questions to give students a BRAIN BOOST, while later questions are more open ended. See samples below.

SAMPLE of creative writing task cards included:
♥Describe your bedroom. (Where do you put your clothes? What color is your bed? Do you have a window?)
♥Imagine you are an astronaut. What is your job like? (What do you see and do at work? Where do you travel?)
♥Imagine you are lost in a haunted castle. (How do you escape? Who do you encounter? Describe what the castle looks like.)
♥You are stuck inside of a video game. (What do you see and hear? Who do you meet? How do you escape?)
♥Describe the day in the life of a very busy cat.
♥How would it feel to be a leaf.
♥Invent a machine that could help you do the chore you hate the most.
♥Imagine you are a bee. Describe what you do at work.
♥Imagine you wore a blindfold for the day.
