Quick and Easy Writing Prompts!

Do your kids struggle with writing topics at times?  Mine do.  We’ve completed Top 10 lists, a heart map, and discussed several other strategies to coming up with writing topics, but they still get stumped.  But thank goodness!  I’ve found the solution to this problem!!!

Hands down, one of the best purchases I’ve made for my classroom.  There are six different genres of writing prompts (including persuasive, which we’re working on this month) and include 20 prompts for each genre.  And the best part – I can use these in my writing center or in whole group.  The kids have really enjoyed them so far!  One of their favorite persuasive prompts was “Should children get an allowance?  If so, how much?”  Hahaha!  Some of their responses had my cheeks hurting from laughing so hard!  πŸ™‚   Hope everyone’s kids are enjoying writing as much as mine are right now.  Happy Wednesday!

    Hi Dana! I made a connection a while back through your blog that you taught in Gwinnett! And then I saw your post about Ferguson's creed and realized…you are right down the road from me! I am at Corley sharing all of your great ideas with my third grade team! Thanks so much! I always give credit when my team sees the great ideas you have!

    Hi Randi! Thanks for following! I bought level 2 and level 3. From what I can tell (from the prompts and the website), the level is equivalent to the grade level. Hope this helps!
