I don’t know about you, but I get such great pleasure reading a good piece of writing . . . produced by my student! Some students can whip up their own amazing ideas with great ease while others struggle to find something worth writing about. I found that an interesting and fun writing prompt can help solve that problem! I usually let my students choose their own writing topics in Writing Workshop, but during Guided Reading centers I like to give them a topic to work on. This way they are both able to come up with one of their own AND respond to a prompt.
Here are some fun Winter themed prompts I created.
