Writing Prompts

Writing prompts are a great way to stimulate your children to write creative and engaging narratives. Writing is important for students of all ages. It develops their ability to articulate their thoughts and ideas. It enhances their creativity and improves their grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling and so much more. 

As a teacher, I use writing prompts to get students started. Often, we write opening paragraphs together to generate ideas and build a base of vocabulary. Use these free writing prompts to inspire your class to write their stories. Each of the prompts has a story start to get you started! Click on the images below.
