It is finally autumn. The days are cooler and we can get outside a lot more without feeling the heat and humidity. We love the changes that come with autumn. So, I decided to take these things we love about this time of the year and make some writing prompts for my kids, and yours to use.
What are Writing Prompts?
Writing prompts are just that, prompts to help your child to write. The writing doesn’t have to be long, perfect, or anything other than based on the topic. I like to use this as a way to warm up their brains before we start school, as a part of our morning baskets. Don’t worry about grading, this is just a time for your child to write and express themselves.
What About Non-Writers?
Even the youngest in the house don’t get to skip this part of our day! If you can’t write, you can draw. If you can’t write, you can narrate. Just because you can’t actually write, doesn’t mean these prompts are too hard for you. They just need to be modified for the younger kids.
How Do You Use Writing Prompts?
Writing prompts can be used in any way you want to use them. You can have them start your school day or to end your day. Use them as a mid-day break. You can use these prompts at any time on any day. Whenever you feel your child needs to do some writing, give them a prompt and let them go!
