This has 25 (mostly humorous) tried-and-true creative writing prompts for middle school or high school students. Student interpretations of these were hilarious and produced some of the most interesting writing!


Bingo #1

Bingo #2

Bingo #3

This can be used as a fun challenge, particularly if you do some sort of journal writing or free-writing each day or week. I created these because I was tired of students saying, "I don't know what to write about!" when we did our free-writing every day for 10 minutes. I printed it off and had them tape it inside their writer's notebooks so they could refer to it any time.

I didn't force them to stick to the prompt exactly -- if it inspired something else, that was fine, too.

You can decide if you want to reward students for completing a BINGO or if you want to just use these as a list to inspire more creative writing.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
Provide a conclusion that follows from and reflects on what is experienced, observed, or resolved over the course of the narrative.
Use precise words and phrases, telling details, and sensory language to convey a vivid picture of the experiences, events, setting, and/or characters.
Use a variety of techniques to sequence events so that they build on one another to create a coherent whole and build toward a particular tone and outcome (e.g., a sense of mystery, suspense, growth, or resolution).
