Give your students choice in their writing with my Pick-a-Prompt writing products. These prompts let your students decide whether they want to share their thoughts, opinions, make lists, write letters, songs, poems, or a silly message! The Pick-a-Prompt worksheets can be used for literacy centers, homework, and morning meeting sharing. These prompts will help you build a strong classroom community.This low-prep, printable resource is now digital using the TpT Overlay tool and can be used for distance learning.

This FREE resource features: 

  • 3 pages of prompts with 3 prompts per page. Students highlight their chosen prompt or simply put an ‘X’ on it and respond to that prompt.
  • All prompts are available with primary and secondary handwriting lines which make these appropriate for Grades 1-4.
  • Writing topics include Read Across America, School Rules, and Bats

How I use this in my classroom

I run these prompts two-sided with the back being the fully lined page that’s included in this packet. I always have extra lined-only pages run off for my voracious writers! I get quite a few two-three page responses!

As always, I model, model, and model again several of these before giving them out. It makes such a huge difference in the quality they produce! The kids know that I won’t accept one word or sentence answers! The more I model and have kids share responses, the better the results are from the whole class.

If you walk into my room, I usually have several of these hanging up around the room. I also use these worksheets as homework once a week and the kids partner share responses during morning meeting the next day. Sharing responses allows the children to get to know their classmates a bit better and helps foster a stronger classroom community.
