These back to school writing prompts are the perfect way to get to know your new students and their writing ability. There is a different prompt for every day of the month of August. I have included some narrative, persuasive, and informational writing prompts. There is the option of printing the writing prompts, letting the students cut them apart, and glueing them in the students' writing notebooks or on a plain sheet of paper where the students can write below it. There is also the option of printing these prompts as task cards and allowing the students to choose which prompt they would like to write about by placing the cards on a binder ring. You could trade out the cards or have them all out all month.
