A total of 240 writing prompts for beginning writers. 20 for each month of the year.
Each prompt includes a question, space to illustrate their answer, double lines (as used in Handwriting Without Tears) to write their answer, and a rubric at the bottom. The rubric includes 5 stars that can be colored in if they have met the criteria for each area. The five areas are capitals, punctuation, finger spaces, sight words, and handwriting. These areas align to the ELA Common Core State Standards for kindergarten and first grade.
I have also organized the writing prompts to go along with each month (big and minor holidays, etc.). A list of the writing prompts for each month is included, as well as the date for prompts that go along with a special day in that month. While many of these prompts would work best in the month I put them in, many could be used in all or several of the months. Mix and match as you please!
A blank writing prompt is also included.
Please let me know if you see any mistakes or have any suggestions.
