These writing prompts were created by using special observances nationally and in the world! The days chosen were ones that students can relate to. This PowerPoint slideshow includes all 31 days of January. This resource comes with a writing journal to keep track of January 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.

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
-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 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 January!
