This resource contains writing prompts for every day of the week, with enough for the full school year! Add to your morning white board message, or use for daily writing prompt, quick write, writing center, question of the day, writing journals, morning work or bell ringer. Topics are arranged under an alteration for each day of the week with more than 180 writing prompts. Alliterations include, but are not limited to, Mindset Monday, Motivation Monday, Tell me Tuesday, Toppings Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, one Word Wednesday, Thank you Thursday, Throwback Thursday, Freaky Friday and Favorites Friday. Ideas for Mindset Monday include “Instead of saying I can’t, I can say…, For Tell Me Tuesday “tell us something we should know about you”, One Word Wednesday, “what is one word you can use to describe how you felt on the first day of school”. Make your students excited to come in and see what will be on the board each morning, if you can doodle and draw that will be a great addition, or print out pictures that relate to your topic. Students can write their answers on the board, on a sticky note, in a journal, on loose leaf paper or you can copy and use one of the recording sheets included. When time allows responses can be shared at morning meeting or students can read what others wrote if they are on the board. I check off the topics as I use them for small group occupational therapy sessions throughout the year. Questions can be expanded depending on the abilities or age group you work with. Ask for a couple of words, sentence or several sentences with “why” included. I also like to add an executive function time management piece to any activity. Students know what time they need to be done, and we set a half way timer and manage time robbers as needed.

For any of the prompts that are “pick a person in the class”, I put sticky notes with each child's name on the board. This way everyone gets a “note”.
