Product Description
This freebie includes 3 days worth of writing ideas for you to try in your class. Each day has 3 different prompts. They are a selection of expository, persuasive, narrative or poetry, but are organized by genre so you can use the prompts to accompany your writing lessons.

These 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.

Each set of prompts comes in four different formats so they can be used in any type of writing binder or notebook. The free sample only includes the first three formats.

If you're interested, Daily Writing Prompts by Genre – Whole Package can be purchased as a bundle where you can save 25%!

You might prefer to get these same prompts organized by months in our Daily Writing Prompts Month-by-Month bundle where you can save 25%. The entire package includes ten months of ideas organized with three different genres per page.
***Please note, these are the SAME prompts, but they are organized by month instead of by genre.
