Why use Writing Prompts?
If you are unfamiliar with writing prompts, basically they are simple “starts” to help children begin writing. Often, children can become discouraged with the daunting task of coming up with ideas, or at least enough words to fill in the blank lines of their notebook paper. Providing students with simple prompts takes some of the guess work out, and helps them get started writing much quicker.
Daily Writing Prompts
Besides the obvious benefit of having a variety of no-prep writing prompts in your teaching arsenal, you’ll notice a few handy features in these thematic sets. First, these pages are designed for beginning writers and busy teachers. Students copy the prompt onto the lines, then use words from the word bank to finish filling in their response. This provides a certain level of independence as students can choose and write their answers with little to no help.
Second, you’ll notice that children are writing their responses on different thematic shapes! These shapes have a thick black line for children to cut them out and place them inside a notebook. Students build a notebook filled with their own writing samples. This notebook makes a fantastic keepsake and portfolio of work.
Alternatively, you can have students cut out their writing prompts and use them to decorate your classroom bulletin board. Parents love to read the variety of student responses, especially when paired next to thematic art work.
