Don’t want to download and print this awesome set of March writing prompts for elementary students! There are 31 prompts to get you through the month.
Can you believe it’s time for another set of writing prompts for your elementary writers?
We’re halfway through February, and it’s time to start looking ahead to our March lesson plans. That means it’s time to release a brand new set of writing prompts to help you and your kids write through the next month.
Winter is on its way out, and spring is on the way in. That means, I had to get creative with the March Writing Prompts in order to keep your kids engaged as the temperatures rise and the sun comes out more often. I think you and your students will have a lot of fun with this month’s prompts.
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.
