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 days of each month (January through December). This resource comes with a writing journal (printable and Google Slides™) to keep track of each month's responses (using this journal is optional) or students can write directly into their writing notebooks/folders! It 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!

This is a YEAR-LONG BUNDLE so these prompts will have you set for the entire year! There are over 1,000 writing prompts with this set!

The preview shows a sample of one month. Click each month to see its full video preview!

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 different months of the year!
