Summer is a great time to work on skills that we haven’t covered as much as I would have liked during the school year. We did a really pitiful job with writing this year, so I knew I had to get organized for the summer if I wanted summer writing to actually happen!
I scoured the internet (and our imaginations) and created a list of 40 writing prompt ideas for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. The list includes a variety of writing styles narrative, persuasive, descriptive, and how-to. I am offering these prompts for free download, but please use them for personal use only. Do not offer them on your own site. After you print the writing prompts, simply cut them apart and put them in a jar, and you have an instant writing station!
Students will further develop their creative writing skills with this Autumn writing prompt activity. This is a great worksheet to keep your students’ creativity flowing!
“Classroom Reporter: Interview with a Classmate” is the perfect way to introduce students to their classmates and learn more about one another.
