Dr Seuss Writing Prompts
On March 2, children and students everywhere will be celebrating Dr Seuss Day also known as National Read Across America Day.
In addition to reading your favorite Dr. Seuss book or Dr. Seuss biography for kids, be sure to inspire some creative writing with these Seuss-inspired writing prompts.In the days leading up to Dr. Seuss’s birthday, give kids the opportunity to write about their favorite Dr Seuss stories, characters, and more.
There are a total of 6 writing prompts in this printable pack. They’re perfect for kids ages 6-10. Younger kids can use them, too, if you have them dictate their story to you. This allows them to create stories without worrying about the mechanics of writing.
Here are a few ideas for making writing a bit more fun:
• Let your students use erasable pens to write their stories. Our favorites pens are erasable gel pens! My youngest likes to change colors with each paragraph, and I like that there are no scribbled out mistakes.
• Print all of the writing prompts at once, and bind them into a report folder to create a writing notebook. Let your kiddo choose which writing prompt to complete each day. This gives them a little control over the assignment, and encourages them to write about what sparks their interest on a given day.
• Every now and then, don’t worry about editing and proofreading. Let them write. When they’ve completed all of the prompts, have them pick a favorite piece or two to polish and publish. You can go through the entire editing, revising, rewriting process at that time.
