Are you looking for creative ways to encourage your children to write? If so you are going to love these pirate writing prompts.
These writing prompts for kids can be used with all age groups, but are aimed at elementary grades.
We love having holiday fun in our homeschool, and we try to celebrate every fun holiday, including Talk Like a Pirate Day.
When the kids have completed this fun writing activity check out all our Talk like a Pirate Day activities and printables that you can have fun with. Including coloring pages, games, and more.

Why use Writing Prompts?
If you have a reluctant writer, or just want to add a little fun to your classroom, I highly recommend using writing prompts.
These fun topics to write about will certainly encourage the children to write more than normal. You could have a child who normally only writes a sentence or two, hand in a 3 page essay.
These are aimed at students in grades 2 – 5th grade, but of course, can be used for middle school students too.
These printable writing prompts are free to print, but they are for personal or classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the page to get the pdf file.
