writing prompts for february
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!
Fill your book basket with a great collection of writing prompt books. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.
