Purpose of Writing Unit

This unit was created to overcome the struggle to get upper elementary students to write creatively. When teachers can find a way to make writing relate to the student, it is a win-win for both. This writing prompt unit does just that. Students love the trendy National days and will look forward each day to finding out what the new holiday is for the day.


The students are given a writing prompt that relates to the trivia given to them about that day's national holiday. This writing prompt can be used as morning work or it can be used in a writing station.


The unit includes both “Black and White” or “Color” printout options!

The writing prompts includes 3 different types of writing:

- Narrative Writing
