Description

Writing prompts are great for morning meeting, morning work, literacy centers, and writer's workshop. These interesting prompts were created by using special observances nationally and in the world and include a variety of writing genres! They encourage student choice and spark writing interest and engagement!

The days chosen were ones that students can relate to. This PowerPoint slideshow and Google Slides™ resource include all 29 days of February (including the leap year). This resource comes with a writing journal (printable and Google Slides™) to keep track of February responses (using this journal is optional) or students can write directly into their writing notebooks/folders! It also comes with Task Cards! The "Today's Date is" is editable so you can fill in the date students are responding to a certain prompt.

*New Update*: There is a blank slide template included in both the PowerPoint and Google Slides™ presentations. You can customize the day, prompt, etc. to your liking!

No SmartBoard? No Problem! These can be printed (full page or multiple to a page) for student use! Simply fill in the date (or leave it blank) and use them like task cards or punch a hole in the corner and create a monthly writing ring! Also, you can use these monthly prompts for speaking and oral discussions (instead of writing)!

Ways to use this Writing Prompt slideshow:

-project it onto your SmartBoard in the morning as students arrive to school and allow them to begin this quiet writing activity

-use in Google Classroom™ and assign slides to students

-put them on classroom computers or iPads for students to use in a writing center

-incorporate these daily writing prompts into your writer's workshop block (they include a variety of genres of writing)

-print a smaller version onto writing rings and use these as an early finisher writing task

-homework to strengthen writing in a creative way

Keep your students interested in writing and with what special days occur in the month of February!
