I have grouped these creative writing prompts together into categories of similar topics to make it easier for you to find writing ideas in the area that you are interested in.
First, you will find creative writing prompts for each month of the year.
When appropriate, I have also included useful links to other informational websites.
that will help save you time in planning your lesson activities.
It would also be fun to place the pictures of people in a geographic location and ask the children to write about what they are doing there.
A variation on this theme would be to go out to a park or cafe and do some people watching.
On this page, you will find a large list of writing topics that will spark creative ideas in your students during journal and creative writing activities.
I have created these writing lists during my 22 years of teaching experience.
I believe that most children want to write before they want to read.
That was certainly the case with both of my children - they would scribble write from an early age and ask me to read it for them :)There is something magical about putting pen to paper and making your words appear.
