Our principal told us about a friend who has her students do "night writes" each week. These are simple writing prompts that are used to help students improve their writing skills in a variety of genres. I haven't been able to find anything online about night writes so thought I'd create my own. I've created a year of "night writes" with prompts unique to each month of the year. I left it in a word document so you can adapt it to your grade level.
