Over the years I’ve posted lots of writing prompts – some narrative, some opinion or argument, and some informative or explanatory. So last year, I decided to group the prompts in each category together into one post. This year, I decided to take my organizing one step further and post, in one place, links to all three of these posts (plus a link to a little collection of prompts based on quotes).
So here it is! Click on each of the four links below to find writing prompts in that category that you are welcome to use in your classroom. The prompts would work well for journal writing as well as for longer “writing process” assignments.
This set of six prompts includes both prompts for fictional narratives and personal narratives.
Seven prompts on a variety of informational topics.
Seven more prompts, this time for persuasive writing.
Prompts Based on Quotes
Five prompts, each based on a quote, with great themes for middle grade kids.
If you’re interested in larger sets of prompts, ready to use without any copying, check out the resources from my store, Classroom in the Middle, listed below. There you’ll also find all three sets as a package if you prefer that, and this free sampler in case you’d like to try that first.
