Are you ready for the third installment of my year of writing prompts?
I’m having so much fun creating this series for you. I hope your kids are enjoying the prompts from December and January. We are knee-deep in winter around here. As a matter of fact, we still have a dusting of snow on the ground from last Thursday’s snowfall.
With snow on the ground and temperatures below freezing (at least in my part of the country), it’s the perfect time to sit in the warmth of the house and get those creative juices flowing with these February Writing Prompts.

Throughout the month of February, kids will have the opportunity to write about their favorite movie, being president, special talents, their dream job, and much more. There are a total of 28 writing prompts in this printable pack – one prompt for each day of the month. There is also a blank page for those who need more room to write.

Here are a few ideas for making writing a bit more fun this month:
- Let your students use colorful pens when they write. Our favorites are erasable gel pens! Em likes to change colors with each paragraph, and I like that there are no scribbled out mistakes.
- Print all of the writing prompt pages, and bind them into a writing notebook. Let your child choose the order in which they’ll complete their writing prompts each day. This gives them a little more control over the assignment, and encourages them to write about what sparks their interest on a given day.
- Don’t worry about editing and proofreading. Let them write. At the end of the month, have them pick a favorite piece or two to polish and publish. You can go through the whole editing, revising, rewriting process at that time. Waiting allows kids to write freely without having to worry about the technical stuff.
Throughout the upcoming year, I will release a brand new set of writing prompts every month. By the time they’ve all been released, you will have 365 elementary writing prompts to use in your homeschool!
