This resource includes 20 days worth of writing prompts for one month. Each day includes 3 prompts. That means you get 60 each month. They are a selection of expository, persuasive, narrative and poetry prompts. Also included are two student reference sheets describing each type of prompt and basic criteria for each type of writing.
These prompts are intended as quick writes (10-15 minutes a day) to increase fluency and interest in writing. They were tested in fourth and fifth grade classes and work great as a start to the day activity or an end of the day wrap up. Students choose which prompt they want to write about and the writing is not assessed. The prompts could be used as an idea bank throughout the year as well. You could also have students select a prompt to publish every few weeks, every month or every term.
Print the prompts by day, by week or by month and watch your students’ interest and fluency in writing grow. All the prompts come in four different formats for easy printing and ink or paper-saving options. They will be begging you for more!
