We’ve designed this pack of writing prompts to accompany our sacred writing time that happens at the beginning of each day at Writer’s Workshop. We wanted our writers to have the freedom to explore creative writing but the practice of responding to given prompts and topics.
Each day, we read a projected prompt, and then set the timer for 5 minutes as the students (and the teacher!) respond by finishing the story. When the timer goes off we have a few minutes for varied avenues of sharing (partner sharing, aloud to the class, under the projector, etc.). We are continually amazed at the writing our students produce after these fun writing prompts and the joy they encounter by sharing them! We then move on to whatever unit we are working on in Writer’s Workshop.
We adore our “sacred writing time” and we hope you will too!
Happy Teaching! :)
