260 Journal Prompts

Every year there are students who say they don't like to write.  I know reluctant writers have a lot to offer, so I decided to create some prompts that would get their pencils flying across their papers! 

You might have already downloaded this packet and if so, there were 210 prompts. I finally added to the list and now there are 260 free journal prompts, so please download them again!
  They're in a whole new format with a new design. 
Happy Writing!

A Pumpkin Writing Prompt Craftivity

Since kiddos tend to be a bit energized on Halloween, I make everything we do that day related to the holiday.

It's pretty simple to include Halloween-themed math activities etc.  If you're looking for a quick, easy and relevant writing prompt for "party day"  then I think you and your students will enjoy this Positive Negative Jack-O-Lantern writing prompt activity.

Since there's a lot of controversy surrounding Halloween, I thought it would be interesting to see what students thought of the holiday, and turn their ideas into a fun writing prompt. 

Students write the positive things that they enjoy about Halloween, as well as a list of negative aspects of the holiday that they don't care for.  I've included a completed sample if you want to easily make an example to share with your students.

Children top off this October writing prompt by making a quick and easy positive negative pumpkin.   Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board.
