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 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.
