St Patrick’s Day Writing Prompts
In the days leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, kids will have the opportunity to write about leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows, and more
There are a total of 8 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 this St. Patrick’s Day:
• Let your students use erasable pens to write their stories. Our favorites are erasable gel pens! My daughter 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 create a writing notebook. Let your child choose which writing prompt to complete each day. This gives students 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.
