Writing Prompts for Kids


We use writing prompts in our workboxes and during our summer routine. Our summer routine is 10 to 15 minutes of structured educational activity a day. Keeping this simple low pressure routine last summer reduced the amount of back-to-school whining when fall came around. It also helped reduce a lot of Summer slide.  Once a week we have "Writing Wednesday" where my children pick a writing prompt from a jar and write a half page.

 

WRITING PROMPTS

 Write about the day in the life of an inanimate object in your house. Must be written from the point of view of the object.


 If I live to be a hundred years old...


Last week I found a secret passage in my closet...


When I open my own restaurant...


Yesterday I was magically transported into my favorite TV show......


 My time machine is ready...


Hello, my name is the Sun.... (write from the point of view of the Sun)


Hello, my name is the Moon... (write from the point of view of the Moon)


It was a dark and stormy night...


 In my secret lair.....


If I had $1,000 I would buy.....


I found a genie lamp and my first wish is.....


The monkeys escaped their cage at the zoo....


You will never believe what I found in the swimming pool.


If I had a superpower it would be...


This morning I woke up with a mermaid tail...
